    • Surely? Envious of a man who can’t sleep in peace? We need constructiveness in what we say or support.

      The essence of the article is that the man is too old for the job and Zimbabwe has more than 13 million people some of whom could probably do better.

  10. It served him right Ba komana hei. He put a young leader in Zambia because of his machinations but he doesn’t want a young leader in Zimbabwe because of his greed. Good for him.
