The longstanding Zimbabwean president, Robert Gabriel Mugabe, has officially resigned from his position.
Mugabe, along with his wife, Grace, and other party officials like Jonathon Moyo and the leader of the youth wing, Kudzanayi Chipanga, have been removed from the ruling Zanu-PF.
The defiant revolutionary refused to resign on live TV on Sunday, where he was surrounded by army generals. Instead, reports claim he handed in a resignation letter which was read out by parliament speaker, Jacob Mudenda.
Foriegn white media is reporting that Zimbabwe’s former Vice-President Emmerson Mnangagwa will take over as president in the next coming days.
White power and Western imperialism have constructed the resignation of Mugabe as a victory for the people of the country, when in actual fact, it signals a return to colonialism.
UK Prime Minister, Theresa May has already publicly said that the resignation of Mugabe is an opportunity for Britain to entrench itself in the country again. May said, “the resignation of Robert Mugabe provides Zimbabwe with an opportunity to forge a new path free of the oppression that characterised his rule. .. As Zimbabwe’s oldest friend we will do all we can to support… to help the country to achieve a brighter future.”
Imagine your coloniser, abuser, killer calling themselves your “oldest friend!”
The construction of Mugabe’s resignation as a victory for the people is a mission to have Zimbabweans, and indeed all Africans, forget about the brutal history of colonialism brought on by Britain and other imperialists. It’s to make the people forget about how even after the Zimbabwean people reclaimed their land, foriegn imperialist countries did all in their power to asphyxiate the people, in a quest to recolonise the country.
They want the people to forget that the same Britain which is calling Zimbabwe its “oldest friend” is the same country which started the looting and pillaging of Zimbabwe in the 18th century. How Cecil John Rhodes pioneered the conquest of Zimbabwe, along with his land grabbing white settler friends. Zimbabwe is where it is today because of the brutal “friendship” of the British.
Those who love justice and appreciate the role land plays in attaining thaf justice, will remember President Mugabe’s tenure as one in which he vehemently protected Zimbabwe from British and American imperialism.
With all of his faults, Mugabe always kept a sharp eye on Zimbabwe’s enemies.
Mugabe is famously quoted as having said, “We have fought for our land, we have fought for our sovereignty, small as we are we have won our independence and we are prepared to shed our blood … So, Blair keep your England, and let me keep my Zimbabwe.”
Unfortunately now, the British are back to take over. The peopple must not be fooled.
