Mugabe has done worse than bankers

I HOLD no brief for the bankers who are being accused by President Mugabe of externalising foreign currency but in my humble opinion the president should not be the one pontificating about these crimes.

=”Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif”>The president, as chief executive officer of this country, presided over the massacre of 20 000 innocent souls in Matabeleland. This is fact and is no allegation at all. The president has called this a period of “madness”.

The bankers do not have blood on their hands. They have not killed anyone and the charges against them are mere allegations. You do not need to be a rocket scientist to establish who has committed the greater crime.

During Ian Smith’s time a few hundred thousand Zimbabweans were in exile. During President Mugabe’s reign millions have been driven into exile. You can try and talk about the brain drain or put a spin on it but the fact of the matter is all these millions have run away from the reign of President Mugabe.
