Cholera Epidemic in Zimbabwe

As if things couldn't get worse in Zimbabwe the poverty stricken nation is now facing a cholera epidemic which has cost the lives of at least 600 people and now appears to have spread to neighboring Botswana and Zambia.

Robert Mugabe refuses to share power with Morgan Tsvangirai and the MDC.

Calls are growing more frequent for Mugabe to resign. Kenyan Prime Minister Raul Odinga has called upon either African Union or UN peacekeepers to be sent to the southern African nation. Mugabe won't budge on either count.

Zimbabwe's problems won't be solved when Mugabe leaves office whether by hook or by crook. But as long as Mugabe stays things in Zimbabwe will only get worse. AIDS, food shortages, political violence, land confiscation and now cholera. What more can happen? Drought?

Mugabe must be removed. Whether it is by his own military or by foreign troops matters little. Whether dead or alive matters little. Mugabe must go.
