Morgan Tsvangirai, the opposition party leader who was running against Zimbabwean freedom-fighter turned President turned violent dictator Robert Mugabe has pulled out of the run-off election, citing the fear of retaliation against his supporters by government backed forces. He has since fled to the Dutch embassy in capital city Harare for protection. Mugabe has ruled since 1980. He’s now in his 80’s. The silver lining I can find in this drama, after he helped destroy everything that was built after the revolution, is that he won’t live much longer. That may be cruel, but less so than all the death he’s helped cause.
