    When you take away the rights, fom the Peaple, without the vote of Peaple, this becomes, Hi treason by the Government to the Peaple. The laws of this Nation are voted "By The Peaple For The Peaple"

    I uderstand the resoning of a one world Government, although Greed must be eliminated, and the power must be guided by God, and, backed by the voting peaple.
    This is a Great Nation of resources.

    The United State's has no business to dictate, to it's own People. All the laws that where made without, the true vote of the Peaple are, all invaid. This Nation does not have a deffiset.

    Sometimes i look at the actions of those who are supposed to be leading Zimbabwe and i shed a tear for the Country. A real Leader has the following qualities: Leads the People through holistic wisdom; Loving kindness; Protection of lives under their care; Commands respect; Strength; compassion; fairness etc.. not murderers, stubborness, viciousness, hard heartedness, instilling fear in others etc..

    The truth is britain must stay away from zim .,because they killed many africans there and the style of trying to come back through paying somebody to clain some human rights abuse ,what about thousands of zimbabweans they killed and rob the country all the money and go .one guy calling himself a heroe by selling the country back into the hands of former murderers of the zimbabwean people .i don't think will be the truth about human rights activists but settling criminals to rob the country back into their hands .thats how they deploy criminals therefor africans must wake up before its too late

    A sincere leader having led for some time would step aside and watch while others continue the affairs so he could make corrections when necessary e.g. Mandela of S Africa & Rawlings in Ghana. Mugabe served himself rather than his country. He has conscience problem which he shall carry to his grave.
