MUGABE, PLEASE YOUR TIME IS UP!
President Robert Mugabe, Icheoku calls on you to please go to your well deserved and earned retirement in order to live out your golden years in peace. You worked very hard for the independence of Zimbabwe and tried your best as their seat-tight president since 1980, but now is the time to pass on the baton. Icheoku says please do not let the Americans, the British and the French use you as a sacrificial offal for their gods, by giving them the reason to invade Zimbabwe. Do not give them a reason to parachute their marines into Zimbabwe in the middle of the night while you are fast asleep and as you know, the petty military force of Zimbabwe will not stand in the way of the corrosive military machine of the west. It will not be worth the cost to you and your rag-tag military. As you also very well know, they will always eventually win regardless of the toll on their men and treasury. Look at Iraq and advise yourself accordingly or how else do you want to be remembered? Cholera or no cholera, Robert Mugabe, you should just leave, having outlived your usefulness as president of the Zimbabwe people. Robert Mugabe, you should now make that difficult for African-leaders' transition from a head of state to an elder statesman and father of Zimbabwe with good pension; and advise the new generation-leaders from outside the government. If you want, some security guarantees could be hatched to avoid your being sent to the Hague on war crimes charges against the Zimbabwe people upon your exit from power. This is a natural cause of action should the west risk their men and treasury to invade Zimbabwe and Icheoku does not think that you, Robert Mugabe would wish that fate on your worst enemy, talk-less of yourself. Charles Taylor of Liberia is today being processed through the court in the Hague because he failed to yield at the first demand his office in Monrovia; eventually he was removed and is now being tried for war crimes. On a final note, Icheoku calls on Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe to yield power today and save Zimbabwe the thunder from the skies which is very imminent, judging from the increased octave of rhetoric from Washington, London and Paris! Why engage in a battle you cannot win, Robert Mugabe, more-so at such your very old Methuselah-like age of eighty plus? What is still the allure of power for a man of such very advanced old age if not the African power-curse? A man who achieved independence for his country Zimbabwe should now be celebrated like Nelson Mandela of South Africa and not still be active in world politics which now favors strongly, the invasion of Zimbabwe. Very arrogantly, Robert Mugabe the other day, said that there is no more cholera in Zimbabwe necessitating an invasion; but unbeknownst to him, that is only one of the many reasons requiring his removal from office. Robert Mugabe is a hold-over president who refused to respect the result of an election in Zimbabwe which elected the opposition and yield power. Also Robert Mugabe has trampled on the human rights of Zimbabwe people and such injustice calls for intervention. Robert Mugabe pissed off some western countries by revoking some land ownerships in Zimbabwe to their chagrin, so you see that it is just not cholera but a myriad of issues that only your exit from power will assuage the impending intervention. So today, Icheoku calls on you, Robert Mugabe to choose wisely and yield the office as only that will save your sorry ass!
