Zimbabwe: BBC, Stop Fanning Flames of War

Zimbabwe had been a very peaceful country before the coming of Mr. Morgan Tsvangirai as a political party leader.
He came through the British to disturb the government of President Robert Mugabe because of his land reform policy.Mr. Tsvangirai is a rebel whom the British want to use and kill Mugabe to take the land from the blacks and hand it over to the white minority again.
I strongly advise Mugabe to arrest Mr. Tsvangirai and not only jail him, but try him for treason, murder and the displacement of innocent Zimbabweans.Those African leaders and the West who are in support of Mr. Tsvangirai are not doing any good to Africa and Zimbabwe in particular.
Mr. Tsvangirai's form of democracy is rebellious.Listening to BBC radio, I heard President Dos Santos of Angola calling for Mugabe to stop the violence whereas the perpetrator to me is Mr. Tsvangirai, who seems to be scheming to get money for the acquisition of arms and probably dole out some of it to his family abroad.
Dos Santos seemed to be in support of Mr. Tsvangirai. The big question here is, if Mugabe supported Jonas Malheiro Savimbi who led the UNITA rebels to fight against his government, he (Dos Santos), would he have been the president of Angola today?
Let Dos Santos be informed that Tsvangirai is a rebel just like Savimbi.Mugabe should send troops to boot Tsvangirai out of the Dutch Embassy and throw him into jail where he will wallow for the rest of his life.
As long as there is freedom of speech in Zimbabwe, journalists too, should stop fanning the flames of war in Zimbabwe, especially BBC journalists.I think they are doing so because the white minority are of British extraction.
If the international body wants Mugabe to step down from power they should clean the whole of Africa, starting with Africa's longest-serving leaders, Omar Bongo of Gabon, Teodoro Obiang Nguema of Equatorial Guinea, Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe, Paul Biya of Cameroon, etc.

I am struggling to believe that, after everything, these views persist. Of course, Mr Monju raises a valid point about the long-serving leaders, but the onus should rest on the African community, not the international one, to remove despots from power. It is time that Africa stands up and removes those who abuse power from the helms, and replace it with leaders who will live up to the ideals of Ubuntu.
