• Zimbabwe: Mugabe Falls From Grace

    WATCHING President Robert Mugabe being booed and heckled by opposition MPs in parliament during a state of the nation address on Tuesday was a sad spectacle and pitiful sight. At the height of his power and popularity in 1980, Mugabe was liked - and hated too - by many who saw him as a liberation struggle hero and a progressive leader who could change his people's lives and the continent for the better. Mugabe initially seemed credible as he appeared to support economic and social interventions to promote social justice within a socialist framework, and a policy regime involving welfare state aspects, hence regulation of the economy supposedly in the general interest and redistribution of income and wealth. Mugabe's policies were purportedly based on advocacy for social rights to ensure universal access to education, healthcare, and workers' social security.
