Whilst it’s a very well-documented fact that Robert Mugabe, over the decades, has mutated into a fully-fledged despot and tin pot dictator, we never, ever imagined that the insipidly corrupt and Stalinist Zanu PF regime would descend to the level of venerating and idolising their tyrannical ruler by declaring his official birthday as a public holiday in Zimbabwe.
…It is an insult to the suffering and toiling youths of Zimbabwe to declare February 21 as a National Youth Day.
“What has Robert Mugabe done for the youths besides trashing their dreams and destroying their hopes and aspirations through decades of misrule, mismanagement of the national economy and rampant corruption?
We trust that a truly democratic and progressive government in Zimbabwe will move in very swiftly to scrap out this ill – deserved and fascist public holiday called the Robert Mugabe National Youth Day.
