Mnangagwa 'moved' to charter plane for Grace Mugabe but not to save 100 000 babies' lives

According to a New Zimbabwe report, President Emmerson Mnangagwa was "moved" to facilitated the return home from Singapore of former first lady Grace Mugabe whose mother died last week.
 
"The president decided to spare the former first lady the inconvenience of scheduled flights at this difficult moment so a chartered plane was arranged for so she could return home as quickly as possible," said a senior Zanu-PF official.
 
But was a chartered plane really necessary? Zimbabwe is the poorest nation in Africa and yet the country's ruling elite have continued to enjoy lifestyles of unparalleled leisure and luxury.
 
President Mnangagwa has bought new cars for the Chiefs, all Zanu PF parliamentary and senate candidates in the elections, party leaders, rogue war veterans. The election has costed $900 million by some people's reckoning but some believe $4 billion will be closer to the mark.
 
Mnangagwa gave the late MDC leader the $4 million Highlands mansion and paid his R2 million hospital bill.
 
To Mugabe and his family Mnangagwa has gave the tyrant a generous golden hand shake and allowed him to keep all the millions of dollars of looted wealth. Now this, a chartered plane from Singapore!
 
This is all happened at a time the country is running out of medicine and cash and most commodity prices are soaring because of shortages.
 
British MP, Kate Hoey, has called Mnangagwa "mark 2 Mugabe" when the two are big spenders for one thing. Whilst Mugabe had the advantage of inheriting seven fat cows from Ian Smith Mnangagwa has inherited one miserably thin cow from Mugabe.
 
It took Mugabe 30 years to take down the Zimbabwe economy from one of the top five richest in Africa to the poorest in Africa. By the time the tyrant was forced to retire in last November's military coup unemployment was a nauseating 90%; the country's health services had all but collapsed hence the need for the dictator and his family's need to fly to Singapore for all their health needs;  ¾ of our people lived on US$1.00 or less a day; etc.
 
How much worse off can someone already living on US$1.00 or less a day be? How long is a piece of string? Give Mnangagwa 30 months, not years months, and many will know how much more miserable life is living on US$1.00 or less a week, having no medicine, etc. Hell is a bottomless pit and it seems Zimbabweans, by keeping Zanu PF thugs in power, are determined to explore its deepest and darkest recesses!
 
"The Province's leading referral centre, Masvingo Provincial Hospital is facing a severe shortage of essential drugs, triggering a high mortality rate at the government run health centre," reported Zimeye on the critical shortage of drugs in Zimbabwe.

"The worst affected departments include casualty, chronic illness and children's wards respectively. Asthmatic patients have not been receiving treatment for the past few months because the nebuliser machine developed a fault and had since not been maintained . Sources at the hospital told ZimEye.com yesterday there was a sharp increase in the mortality rate among infants and patients referred to the casualty section due to the critical shortage of essential medicine."
 
So President Mnangagwa was "moved" to charter plane for Grace Mugabe just to save her "the inconvenience of scheduled flights". At a cost of $1 million or so; money that would have bought enough life-saving medicine for 10 000 plus who now dying unnecessarily. It is sickening!
