I know it is almost Christmas and I am fully aware of all the problems this world is facing and I am sure you too have some issues that are of concern to yourself. Also, you may have received this sort of letter before but I ask for your patience to read this one - its from "the horses mouth!"
Just give this a thought - if you were terrified of your government, if you knew that killings for opposing the government were happening every day, if you were starving to death (I MEAN ALL THIS - think about it), if you were sick and there was absolutely no medical help, if there were no longer schools for your children/grandchildren, if all whom you knew were unemployed and cholera was rife ......can you even begin to imagine it, truly imagine it for one second ...not easy! But get the full story below.
Peter and Nikki Nupen are close friends of mine whom I met when working in
It’s a horror story. If you believe in prayer then pray HARD for
Dear Family and Friends,
I returned exactly a week ago from a trip to
Please through this little episode, see the Zimbabwean crisis in its totality. In a country riddled with Aids, those who become infected with Cholera have little or no chance of survival. The vast majority of Government Hospitals have closed throughout
There is very little electricity supply. Where I was staying, we had a period of eleven days with no power. The knock-on effect of this is that there was no electricity to run the bore-hole pump. Fridges and Deep-freezes cease to function and all perishable goods need to be thrown out. Toilet cisterns do not re-fill. There is no water for bathing. One has to find a friend who has a Generator to run a bore-hole, to get drinking water. PLEASE try to imagine yourself in that situation every day.
PLEASE GET THE PICTURE OF HOW BAD THINGS ARE IN
Having outlined the scenario I will now come to the point of writing this letter. Desmond Tutu, our Nobel Peace Prize Winner has openly stated that Robert Mugabe needs to be brought before the
It is all too evident when the United Nations Security Council meet that the three Nations which help keep this failed dictator in power are
SOME HARD FACTS :
FACT NO. 1 THERE ARE NO SANCTIONS AGAINST
FACT NO. 2 KALEMA MOTLANTE, the current interim President of South Africa was the leader of the South African Observer Mission which declared that the last set of elections in Zimbabwe was both free and fair, WHEN EVERY OTHER OBSERVER MISSION DESCRIBED THEM AS THE EXACT OPPOSITE. Remember also that the current mediator in
FACT NO. 3 Mugabe was a leader in the liberation struggle and had the opportunity to be an international figurehead akin to Nelson Mandela.
However, he chose differently. It is fine for Liberation Heroes to support each other when good governance in terms of African Union guide lines are being observed in their respective countries. But why should Liberation Leaders, especially the South Africans, choose to support Mugabe when he is carrying out his own subtle HAULOCAUST IN ZIMBABWE (and this is why he is needed at Le Hague). Remember also, this illegal dictator has lost the latest National Election, and has been defeated in a Presidential Poll. Thank goodness the Civilized World has seen through Mugabe's criminal ways, and understand the necessity to be rid of him.
Let me briefly elaborate on Mugabe's Holocaust. In the early 1980s' Mugabe unleashed his notorious Fifth Brigade on the people of Southern Matebeleland, killing some twenty thousand MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN, for his own political gain and terrorized Joshua Nkomo and the Matabele People into an
Mugabe is a man bent literally on starving to death those who are deemed not to support him. If this does not equate to a HOLOCAUST, then I do not know what does. When people lie down to die, knowing it is easier to go that way, rather than being brutally savaged to death by showing resistance, then you know a HOLOCAUST is taking place.
The supportive behaviour by the leaders in
Under these circumstances who is the ANC kidding that a solution in Zimbabwe "must be found by Zimbabwean People themselves" As I write this letter, some forty two MDC supporters have disappeared, and Morgan Tsvangarai threatens to pull out of the Unity Talks altogether if they are not released by Mugabe's illegal regime. When can a fair and just solution be given to
I hope we, collectively, can prove him wrong.
I would like to believe that it is up to those nations in the world who truly understand the plight of the Zimbabweans and believe that something must be done to save the Zimbabwean people, that must act.
I WOULD ADVOCATE THAT THESE COUNTRIES START TO BOYCOTT THE SOCCER WORLD CUP DESTINED FOR
The civilized countries in the world need to be seen to withdraw support from
The closure of the Beit Bridge Border Post between
PLEASE DO NOT BE DUPED INTO MUGABE WANTING TO CALL FOR NEW ELECTIONS IN TWO YEARS TIME, SHOULD THE CURRENT ROUND OF UNITY TALKS FAIL. This is a plan by Mugabe which will allow him a further two years to obliterate the MDC by continuing with his current HOLOCAUST. The Opposition has won, against all odds, both a National Election and a Presidential Election. This is now being denied to them by Mugabe. Please do not give in to Mugabe's plans, and allow him to obliterate the MDC for ever OVER THE NEXT TWO YEARS.
I am tired now, and have probably written a rather poor grammatical letter, but I do hope I have managed to convey a very important message. I ask friends and family around the world to précis this letter and send it to influential news papers in your respective countries. I ask you to forward it on to your respective News Channels and Governments for action. Please pass this letter on to anyone who you think may have influence. Please do good for
Yours in truth,
Thirty years of horror in what was once the most beautiful country on Earth. What is Britains response? To give the chief architect a knighthood(sic).
