Thabo Mbeki and the Southern African Development Community (SADC) have been pretty useless at attempting to manage Zimbabwe’s Mugabe crisis, cholera crisis, financial crisis and associated spillage into neighbouring countries.
We can only expect they will manage the latest anthrax crisis and looting by Robert Mugabe’s soldiers across Zimbabwe with equally elegant ineffectiveness. President Mbeki, has been far from effective in managing South African foreign policy and interventions in Africa. Many South Africans have begun to believe that the amount of time he spends outside South Africa is more to satiate his apparent obsession to accumulate South African airways air miles, rather than producing any results of consequence.
God help Zimbabwe is all we can say.
Perhaps hiring an executive coach is exactly what Mr Mbeki needs in order to be more successful in his role. By the looks of it, his current approach to African strategy has less chance of succeeding than the odds on even the best slots casino online. UPDATE: Mr MBEKI is surprisingly now teaching a course in African strategy following his sudden forced exit from South African politics. Even more surprisingly, people are attending!
