Archbishop of York: Mugabe "On Borrowed Time", and challenges Military to say No to Mugabe
John Sentamu; Archbishop of York [England, Great Britain] and a native of Uganda has declared that Mugabe is "living on borrowed time". He issued a challenge to the police and military in Zimbabwe to not allow themselves to be used as "an instrument of repression".
In other news, Ms. Jendayi Frazer [a seniour US Envoy in Africa] has declared that "MDC was the clear winner" in the presidential elections. Ms. Frazer is trying to obtain support from Africa for a resolution to the Zimbabwe Crisis. On the other hand, James Kircheck of the New Republic wrote in his column about the need to "arm Zimbabwe's Opposition" saying that the "people of Zimbabwe would be ready and less afraid if they have guns to blaze". Mr. Kirchick further added that "they [the people of Zimbabwe] do not lack a passion for freedom ; it is the necessary tools to wrest themselves from the yoke of tyranny they need".
Ever since the news about the arms for Mugabe became public, there have been people who have been talking about arming the MDC. Allan Boesack and Braam Hanekom have called on the United Nations and the SADC [Southern African Development Community] to intervene by sending troops to Zimbabwe.
It must be remembered that Mugabe is not someone who is just going to leave power voluntarily. During the 1980 Elections which brought about the creation of the Republic of Zimbabwe, he threatened to "go back to the jungle and fight".
