After almost six months in the doldrums, Baba Jukwa, who took the nation on a three-month joy ride in the run-up to the 31 July elections, has bounced back. Today, he claims, President Robert Mugabe has collapsed. “If it is true that he has died,” he wrote, “they are likely to keep his body refrigerated until security chiefs pass the nod to announce. When that will be? It could even be 6 months later. This is the way to do it in line with protocol. Meanwhile pray for your country Great Zimbabweans so that there is no bloodshed.” Baba Jukwa claimed that security at State House in Harare had been tightened because things were not well but apparently Mugabe is on his traditional annual holiday in the Far East. The Movement for Democratic Change queried why he had the guts to go on holiday while the country is facing a serious economic crisis.
