Hangers-on just as guilty as dictators they prop

They do so because they want to be seen to be more loyal than everyone else.



The result is that the dictators would never learn their mistakes because of the overzealous support  they get from those who were erstwhile-enemies-turnedfriends.

Who then should tell dictators that enough is enough?  Should they only be ousted by people power?  Surely something has to be done for we all learn from our mistakes.


There should be men and women on the side of a dictator who should dare take the bull by the horns.  History has it that those who dared make that mistake got the wrath of it.  But they have been remembered even in their graves.

In our land we have the likes of Mbuya Nehanda, Sekuru Kaguvi, Chaminuka and Joshua Mqabuko Nkomo etc who dared challenge the status quo.


Some were killed but others survived and to this day they are fondly remembered for declaring that enough was enough. If dictators do not know when it is time up let us tell them. The question is: who will bell the cat?
