A lot more intervention is needed in order to remove Mugabe from office be it from within Zimbabwe, Africa or the wider international community but people have had enough and can no longer live they way that they do. Just about everything that is being said at the moment has been said before with people calling upon SADC (who have been called upon before) to intervene. Do people not care about Zimbabwe that much and are waiting for another Darfur situation and only come to some sort of realization when too much harm has been done? This last weekend Mugabe insisted he would not step aside for MDC and went as far as saying “Only God, who appointed me, will remove me — not the MDC, not the British. Only God will remove me!” Zimbabweans are religious a people and there are a lot of people praying for salvation. He may have unknowingly sealed his own fate when he said what he said because at this point in time God may be the only one able to remove him from power and set the people of Zimbabwe FREE.
