Well I guess at this time a comment about the ongoing election saga in Zimbabwe is only appropriate. Rumour and speculation are rife at the moment as the delay in results continues. There is talk of change in government and talk of retribution if things remain the same. If there is change though it will be interesting to see how the future unfolds for Zim and how people will respond to a new government. On paper the MDC promise the world but any dose of realism will see that there is a lot of work to be done whoever wins. Inflation isn't going to stop overnight, nor will roads misaculously repair themselves. More so it is not the sole responsiblity of the government to repair the nation-they exist to provide a condusive environment for good business and productivity; it will be the people who do the work and that will have a cost financially and in terms of manpower. If people expect the government to provide all for them and to do all the work we will end up with a future that looks the same as it does now as we continue to relinquish control of our lives to 'the system'.
