Robert Gabriel Mugabe was the last flickering torch of resistance to imperialism and neo-colonialism on the continent. In the wake of your passing the hyenas and vultures, the supine and comprador among the African masses dance to the outmoded tunes of their veritable lieges in the capitalist imperialist centres of the world, in London, Paris, and Washington, projecting their base objurgations unto you, for that is the praxis of the weak, undignified, vacuous and ineffectual.
Their animadversions are nothing more than undying affirmations of your integrity as a revolutionary and true son of Africa. A man who immovably and with great resolve pushed for the redistribution of land judiciously requisitioning stolen farmland inherited by the scions of the colonisers and transferring ownership to its indigenous people. Knowing very well the iniquitous forces he would have to contend with.
White farmers where dispossessed and displaced and the historical purview once tilled by our ancestors restored to its children. It was, undoubtedly so, a pristine manifestation of justice, an act for which Zimbabwe and her peoples have suffered systematic attempts of sabotage by the western axis of imperialism to cripple Zimbabwe’s economy with constricting sanctions.
Yet under such great pressures Mugabe stayed the course of justice declaring “(The west) precludes our people’s right to their God-given resources, which in their view must be controlled by their kith and kin. I am termed dictator because I have rejected this supremacist view and frustrated the neo-colonialists. We will proceed with current land reform with or without sanctions! … Let that position be known here and abroad. The land is ours. It’s not European and we have taken it, we have given it to the rightful people!”
Alas, whilst the reactionary, intellectually indigent, neo-colonial lackeys and footsoldiers among the African masses, those the late anti-colonial revolutionary and martyr in the cause of African liberation; Amilcar Cabral spoke in regards to as nothing more than the “Cancer that must be rooted and upturned from Africa” celebrate in blithe…..we, rember and honour the contributions to the African liberation struggle by a man who has been the subject of a meticulous unabating overt two decade vicious imperialist campaign of character assassination.
Soon these dregs of humanity occupying the lowest nadir on the sole of our boots will move against Eritrea, Algeria, Seychelles (tried in 1981), Namibia and any vestigial anti-colonial socialist movement that dares affect even a morsel of resistance to western hegemonic control over its mineral and hydro carbon deposits; any program directed toward the solemn liberation of the African masses will be met by an imperialist funded and guided insurgency.
We are are surely on our way to become slaves if anything in our own homelands.
