Mbeki And Zimbabwe

The world seems to hold an opinion that South African President Thabo Mbeki is invaluable in ending the problem, that has become a crisis, that is Zimbabwe.

A most delightful display of naive silliness.

Thabo Mbeki engages Robert Mugabe in discussions and dialogs.

Much like what ASEAN is doing with Myanmar. And the results are very much non-existent.

This is also the same Thabo Mbeki who refuses to recognize HIV as a health problem in South Africa and is of the opinion that it is only a white man's disease.

Taking into account political inertia, the world should, instead, shift their focus on Jacob Zuma, the putative next President of South Africa.

Perhaps Jacob Zuma would be much more helpful.
