  1. As with most dissidents who flee from the country of oppression Hasani probably feels quite safe in criticising Zimbabwe from the relative safety of England. I doubt whether Mugabe would be able to silence him, but would probably like to. This is fairly inflammatory stuff, but delivered in quite way. I always remember Roosevelt’s quote: Speak softly, carry a big stick.’ Perhaps there needs to be some internal gathering in the country who can get a big stick and get rid of the oppressive regime running the country. It will be interesting to see what happens when Mugabe dies, there doesn’t appear to be a power vacuum with his henchmen behind him ready to take over the mantle of leader/dictator.
