Zimbabwe: Social Media Becomes Mugabe's Nightmare
28 October 2016
Rome — In a WhatsApp video that went viral in September, a middle-aged Zimbabwean man addresses President Robert Mugabe, telling him that 90 percent of the people in the country are unemployed and do not contribute to the economy because Mugabe cannot provide jobs.
"You are assaulting children for expressing their heartfelt disappointment because of your misrule. We are tired of that," the man continues, speaking about high-level corruption, injustice and police brutality, and deteriorating social service delivery.
He asks Mugabe: "You wear spectacles, but you can't see. How many spectacles do you need to see that you are destroying the country?"
