Zimbabwe Independence Day

Like much of Africa, the area that is now Zimbabwe was long controlled by Europeans. In 1922, the 34,000 European settlers chose to become a self-governing British colony, Southern Rhodesia; in 1923, Southern Rhodesia was annexed by the British Crown. A fight for independence took place in the 1970s. An independent constitution was written for Zimbabwe in London in 1979, and independence followed on April 18, 1980. Independence Day is celebrated in every city and district of the nation with political rallies, parades, traditional dances, singing, and fireworks. More...

I have read that the current dictator was, in fact, a rather nice chap during the first 10 years of his rule.

Then like many other dictators, he simply could not turn over power to anyone else, so he is still there.

I have also read that Zimbabwe has great potential to become a prosperous and successful country -- if only it could get some good leaders.

In China, the Communist Party's slogan is "TO SERVE THE PEOPLE." And, despite its being a dictatorship, it has, in fact, delivered material goods to the Chinese people. Sadly, the current dictator in Zimbabwe seems to have the slogan "TO SERVE MYSELF, MY FAMILY, AND MY FRIENDS."

It's good to see countries become their own domains after colonization

I have read that u r a nice chap when u serve ur colonial usurper masters whether for 10 days or 10 years. They will call u a great leader. If u fight for ur honour and freedom u r a terrorist. Even if u redeem urself like Nelson Mandela they still wont feel a twinge of guilt for their hypocrisy.

Then like many nice chaps u become dictator in their books for refusing to succumb to the usurpers' power and bondage anyone. They will call u a dictator, a racist and it doesn't matter even if all ur own people stand behind u.

I have also read that Zimbabwe has great potential to become a prosperous and successful country-- if only their freedom lover leaders had the ability to deride themselves with some abject servility to the colonial usurpers.... no if only it didn't get the inhumane, discriminatory and heinous sanctions against its economy.
