My heart goes out, at this time in history, to the people of Zimbabwe who are as confused, as a nation, as one can get it. As the world looks on in anticipation of a peaceful resolution of the current impasse in the country, the citizens go on their knees praying for a miracle to happen.
They had woken up last week to the sounds of soldiers’ marching boots and a parade of artillery on the streets. Although confused at what this might mean, the majority of them took to the streets in jubilations and excitement, that “the” change might have finally come. They had, like observers outside the country, mistaken the parade of tanks on the streets for a military coup and the end of the authoritarian rule of 93-year old Robert Mugabe.
