Several African nations are experiencing problems right now. Below I’ve compiled a list with some explanation of what’s happening and links to find out more.  I’ve listed the nations in a north-to-south, west-to-east (or left to right) order.

In a follow up to this earlier article, it appears that the ZANU-PF’s leadership is somewhat fragmented.  You can guess as to whether the divisions led to the March 2008 election losses or were precepitated by them.  In either instance, President Mugabe’s statement appears to demonstrate his viewpoint:

I will never, never, never, never surrender. Zimbabwe is mine, I am a Zimbabwean. Zimbabwe for Zimbabweans. Zimbabwe never for the British, Britain for the British

Odd that when the Zimbabweans vote his party out of power he still sees Zimbabwe as his instead of it being the people’s nation.


Zimbabwe – Human Rights Issues

What’s wrong in Zimbabwe?  Cholera, military riots and, allegedly, despotism (another article).

Clean water, antibiotics and health care are enough to resolve the first issue while printing more money and handing it out to the soldiers for backpay helped with the second issue; the third issue is more difficult. 

President Robert Mugabe of the ZANU-PF party, recently stated the the cholera outbreak in his country was contained but the objective sources I found strongly disagree with President Mugabe.
