What the ..., we talk to this man
Thabo Mbeki has yet again put himself beyond the pale agin. In Todays Mail and Guardian he actually says this while on a visit to his chum Mugabe.
"Our countries faced common problems. They shared common problems of oppression. They share common problems today. And in reality that is why we are here," Mbeki said.
Mbeki said he hopes Mugabe "can assist us to confront the problems we have in South Africa, so that if we can, we can assist you to solve the problems that face Zimbabwe".
He also accepted that vile regieme's land seizure policy with a shrug of his shoulders.
He also indicated support for the Harare regime's lawless seizure of white-owned farms when he said that the four-year expulsion of about 4 000 white farmers was "probably inevitable". Zimbabwe can assist South Africa, will the last sane human leave that country, quickly.
