Zimbabwe vigil, outside the Zimbabwe Embassy, London. I visited Zimbabwe briefly, many years ago. I found a beautiful country full of friendly people. They deserve better than Mugabe. Much better.

Thanks both, and thanks for the highlight. I think this is a message worth spreading.

QSS, the happiness there reflected my limited experience of the Zimbabwean people: I saw an ability to stay cheerful whatever life threw at them. I think it's an attitude that will keep some of them going through this dark time, and I hope it will help them to rebuild after Mugabe and his thugs are gone.

Agree wholeheartedly hari..
I also went there a few years ago. worry about the friends I made and find it difficult to reconcile my memories of the place and the people with the stories I now hear.

Years ago, before things got this bad, I asked one of them why they didn't do anything about him. Her response "He will die in time". To me that sentence is a constant reminder that I should try harder to understand other people and cultures.

Have never been to Zimbabwe, but have been to the vigil on a few occasions .... ace pics Hari ..... had pro ZANU posters in my room in college, one of my closest friends at the time (early 70's) was a black rhodesian lad, he would be turning in his grave now ...... Mugabe's exit can not come too soon ....

Indeed it can't Maggie

Anon - I asked her a similar question. She shrugged. I'm not sure where she is now but if / when we meet in the future I'll have lots more questions to ask
