Not looking good for the succession then

Grace Mugabe has spent millions on properties in South Africa in apparent preparation for a bolt hole amid rising tensions about who will succeed her husband, Robert Mugabe, as president of Zimbabwe.

Documents seen by The Telegraph show that Mrs Mugabe, who is currently facing allegations that she beat up a woman in Johannesburg, recently spent about £4 million on a mansion in one of south Africa’s richest suburbs.

Then again, there’s a value in this. Mengistu has done a lot less harm sitting on his Zimbabwean farm than he did running Ethiopia.

  1. Documents seen by The Telegraph show that Mrs Mugabe, who is currently facing allegations that she beat up a woman in Johannesburg

    Is that all a potential successor to Mugabe can manage these days? Just beating up one person?

  2. “And yet, whoever replaces them will be cut from the same demographics, and simply be the same or worse”

    Let’s follow that logic. Kitchener and his concentration camps for Afrikaaners: we’re the same demographic.
    The bombing of the King David Hotel: Jews did that.
    Carpet boming Vietnam with Napalm: the same demographic as turned up in Charlottesville.
    The holocaust:same demographic as those sweet blog girls we’ve all ogle on the beech on Ibiza.
    Paul Rain taking shite on this blog: the same demographic. .. oh shit!

  3. Please continue, Ironman.

    Speaking of things Jews did- pretty sure the ones who built ‘Great Zimbabwe’ tried to give the locals the wheel too. That didn’t work out so well.

  4. Someone (maybe Peter Simple, or perhaps Alan Coren) years ago proposed that the UN establish a “Dundictatin” hideaway, a relatively nice out of the way place where people like Mugabe could retire in comfort, with their money, and be immune from prosecution.

    The argument was that once they reach a certain point of horribleness they have to cling to power to keep themselves safe, but if you give them somewhere to go then a lot of them would take it.

  5. There’s a lot in your assertions, Ironman. Just look at the Brits. Perfectly likeable people who’ll fly off & murder the children of German cities in their beds. Depends on the circumstances, doesn’t it? Do you think the circumstances in Zimbabwe have changed?

  6. Logic Tinribs?

    “The holocaust:same demographic as those sweet blog girls we’ve all ogle on the beech on Ibiza”

    What sweet blog girls? Are you implying said girls are Gerrman? If so -again-what sweet (German) blog girls? And what the Hell does the beach in Ibiza have to do with anything?

    If Mr Rain’s use of the imprecise word “demographic” is applied to all blacks everywhere and throughout all time then it likely IS an over-generalisation. But if applied to the black leftist scum who infest the political “scene” in Rhodesia then it is all too accurate.

  7. “Kitchener and his concentration camps for Afrikaaners”: true, as long as you explain that ‘concentration camp’ didn’t then carry the meaning that it carried under Hitler. But why not mention their predecessors – Spanish concentration camps in Cuba, American concentration camps in The Philippines? Or their successors: the style of the internment of Japanese US citizens in WWII carried some resemblance to Nazi behaviour. But only some.

  8. BiS,

    You should know damn well that the Krauts started it – in the First War, to be precise. In the Second War they picked up where they left off, having had a practice run in, of all places, Spain. Or as Sir Arthur Harris once said:

    “The Nazis entered this war under the rather childish delusion that they were going to bomb everyone else, and nobody was going to bomb them. At Rotterdam, London, Warsaw, and half a hundred other places, they put their rather naive theory into operation. They sowed the wind, and now they are going to reap the whirlwind.”

    Besides, the bomber crews were drawn from all over the world, not just Britain, including the US.

  9. Yes I know, Witchie. But having had two uncles in the bomber crews, always been proud of the particularly British contribution.(one FTR, one 3 tours in Lancs)

  10. There’s a lot in your assertions, Ironman. Just look at the Brits. Perfectly likeable people who’ll fly off & murder the children of German cities in their beds.

    German cities can procreate?

  11. @ Dennis
    You need to add in the verse about the sins of the fathers being visited upon the children as we don’t know about the sins of those children

  12. @ Ironman
    Turned up in Charlottesville *to attack the marchers* …
    Have you forgotten that LBJ was the start of all this SJW stuff?
    Barry Goldwater – who desegregrated Phoenic Arizona – wanted to interdict terrorists using the “Ho Chi Minh trail” – LBJ used napalm on children.

  13. Try this:

    The Lord is slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love, forgiving iniquity and transgression, but he will by no means clear the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, to the third and the fourth generation. Numbers 14:18

    For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:23

    Romans 6:23 lacks specificity as to who dies for a reason.
