Desmond Tutu speaks up for Zimbabwe, against Mugabe.
By, Uwe Paschen.
Desmond Tutu, the voice of Reason and courage in South Africa, a Clergy of the Anglican Church of South Africa, Nobel Price winner. Moreover, key figure in the fight against apartheid in South Africa declared on The 25th of December 2008, that South Africa is betraying the Legacy of struggling against Apartheid by allowing Mugabe to stand and the human tragedy to go on in Zimbabwe.
Tutu went on saying. “"All of us want to see a resolution of what is just an awful situation and I don't think you can have any real solution unless Mugabe steps down. They can ask him to step down and if he steps down, OK, and if he doesn't, maybe he should be forced down.”
Tutu’s statement came after a group of Human rights activist was broth before the hight court in Zimbabwe and where allegedly tortured.
Tutu said the AU (African Union Organization) should intervene and take Mugabe down by force if necessary.
Countries such as Botswana and Zambia have taken a strong stand against Mugabe in Harare; the South African government has stopped short of calling on him to resign.
Further Mukoko, a former newscaster who headed the Zimbabwe Peace Project, has been arrested and Judged and facing the death penalty in Harare this December.
Tutu was also among those that tried to neggociate a peace and joint Government in Zimbabwe last September in Harare. Wish was brokered with the help of Nelson Mandela and yet ended up in a failure again.
Zimbabwe does sink deeper into misery, Poverty, injustices, epidemics and oppression with each passing day. This can no longer be tolerated and Tutu is one of the few that raise their voice yet again, as he did in the days of the Apartheid, for Justice.
