International View On Zimbabwe - (video)

Our northern neighbour's politics are the source of either laughter or tears in the world outside Africa. Unfortunately it seems that African leaders are blinded by the history of the Zimbabwean liberation struggle and refuse to acknowledge that Robert Mugabe has become a corrupt despot. It was interesting to hear CNN reporter Richard Roth repeatedly refer to President Thabo Mbeki as the Zimbabwean president in a report yesterday evening - perhaps an indication of what the world perceives in Mbeki's attitude to Zimbabwe?

This video from the French news channel France24 gives an inside look at Zimbabwe - it makes for interesting viewing.
