I dont know about that. I spent some time out in rural Zimbabwe and I asked about that situation. Robert Mugabe has a real clench on the situation. Arms are controlled by the government and further to that point the army is the only group of people who can own guns outside of safari guides. The majority of the people live outside of Harare which seems to be the center and only center of education and free thinking. His government workers go to all the rural areas and pretty much force the people to vote for him out of fear of being hurt or have their land taken away. Their land is their only source of income since the unemployment rate is near 90% and most people are family farmers. Any time that someone runs against him they get in really bad car “accidents”. I worked at a hospital and one of the doctors who worked their spoke to me about this whole situation. The people felt like they had nothing to lose when they had their revolution in the 70’s-80’s. Nowadays they feel as if they have everything to do and in this native Zimbabwean doctor’s words “Everyone is too big of a sissy to fight”. Their is some turmoil within his party but unfortunately, more likely than not, one of the high ups in his party will end up taking control. But with this will come alot of violence due to others wanting the power.
