following the tone orchestrated by the British, the European Union have made it their primary Africa policy to demonise President Mugabe as a corrupt, fascist and blood-thirsty tyrant whose only purpose in life has been to cling to power by rigging elections after elections while brutalising and starving his people to death, thanks to his firm grip on state institutions.

On April 20, the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) Chairman George Chiweshe belatedly announced that Mr. Mugabe’s ruling Zanu-PF part had lost control of parliament, winning 97 seats, compared with 109 for the combined opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) and its smaller affiliates.

The defeat by Zimbabwe opposition of the ruling Zanu-PF in both parliamentary and presidential elections raises many questions about President Mugabe’s [demonic] caricature, created by the New Labour British government.
