Who benefits from the military coup in Zimbabwe?

So what happened? If this coup was about the economy and social issues then it would have likely happened in 2008 and or at the very least in 2016 when the President announced that US$15 billion has gone missing. Over the last year the economic situation severely deteriorated. Whereas between 2005 and 2008 there was some semblance of functioning industry the backbone for working class Zimbabweans by 2016 most industries had shut down. In 2016, I spent months driving around the country taking stock of the status of various industry and it was depressing. The once bustling Willoville neighborhood in Harare was a skeleton of its former self. Zimbabweans have always supported the local industry by purchasing locally made products – everything was made in Zimbabwe, however, today nothing is made in Zimbabwe. People are resorting to buying used underwear on the streets smuggled in from Mozambique.

  1. So ok, give me a tiananmen square. I want to be around Aparteid with Nelson Mandela. I want to be in Rwanda during the genocide of Christians. I want to see this military coup in Zimbabwe up close. I don’t need some Dick Durbin telling me about what is going on in Zimbabwe. Yeah nothing going on in America except diabetes and food that is giving people diabetes and cancer. And the medical profession tells us to take pills. I want to live in an alternate dimension where bullets are flying at me, but I at least know what the cause is. And I know what side to be on. I am getting sick and tired of hearing bored beer guzzling Samantha Sam Richies talking about their bigfoot encounters in the woods up in Yakima county.
    Needull you are hitting the right chord. Joe Biden talking about black history month or telling a crippled politician to stand up he is hitting the wrong chord. Hey needull can you tell me why I am reading a book on interstellar travel? Can you tell me why I am reading a book on interstellar travel and it’s talking about Sodom and Gomorrah from the bible. I’m seirous. It’s on page 142. That’s the sheltered I am mean.
    Well my life in America is so bored now. I know that Ringling brothers just retired their elephants. Almost mysterious how the news showed it too. Well elephants come from Africa. And I have heard some really outrageous things about what the elephants of Ringling bros could be used for, making clones of mammoths.
