Mugabe a prisoner!


A senior government minister recently boasted that were it not for people like him and other politicians the President would be in the dark.

President Mugabe, he said, did not know what was happening in the country and he had to rely on ministers, MPs etc to brief, him. The government minister said most of the time President Mugabe was a prisoner.

His security men (bodyguards) set his programme and included such details as when he should leave State House, when he should be seated in his plane, who to greet when he arrived at his destination, how many minutes he should spend greeting the people, how long he should address a meeting and then they whisked him back to Harare.

After locking him up at State House, the minister said, the bodyguards went to enjoy themselves in city pubs.
