Backing Mugabe?

You haven’t seen much about Zimbabwe in this space for a while, but here’s something crazy. The Times of London reported last week that the 14-nation Southern African Development Community is backing Zimbabwean leader Robert Mugabe at the EU-Africa summit on December 8-9. If Zimbabwe is criticized at the summit, the group will pull out. Some may have considered Mugabe to be a great leader in the past, but why these countries are supporting a man who put Zimbabwe’s economy in such dire straits that it is now starving itself to death, is a mystery.
