Zimbabwe Slides Further Into Chaos While The Rest Of Africa Looks On
Things are getting even crazier in Zimbabwe. If that's possible. Robert Mugabe and his thugs are arresting and administering beatings to his political opponents, and the rest of Africa's leaders are encouraging him.
As a meeting of the leaders of most countries in Southern Africa ended today opponents of Mugabe's government were brought to trial. The leaders of those Southern African countries have essentially condoned Mugabe's behavior by telling him to continue to oppose the West.
This can only spell further disaster for Zimbabwe. Just as it looked as if the opposition was gaining some ground they were "submarined" by the leadership of surrounding governments.
This is a shame for folks who have Zimbabwe hunting safaris scheduled for this season. There is word that there have been a number of last minute cancellations by hunters. Until Mugabe is gone I think Zimbabwe is a crap shoot for those hoping to go on a hunting safari there. Hopefully that will change soon so that country's excellent safari operators will be able to run their operations more safely and reliably.
