Harare(ZimEye)President Mugabe (85) slept during an investment conference in Harare today (Wednesday)

Immediately after his sleeping session, Mugabe came out announcing on the recently gazetted indigenisation law which has raised a lot of international interest, saying foreign investors who would refuse to accept 49 percent equity will be  fools.

“Forty nine percent is a hell lot of equity, its only foolish ones who will say no, wise ones will accept,” he said.

However, on the same day, Zimbabwe’s minister in charge of indigenisation, Saviour Kasukuwere was reportedly considering placing the controversial law on hold.

Mugabe also said that sanctions targetted against Zimbabwe must go.

    to defend this, is the height of mischief! surely the man must take a rest and leave the job to younger people! age has caught up with him and that is for a fact.

    Often we find ourselves working under the leadership of people whose integrity we question and whose decisions we disapprove of. Regardless of what we may feel personally, we lose nothing if we focus on what is noble, what is best, what is beautiful and praiseworthy.

    One thing I’m so proud about to be Zimbabwean is knowing that Zimbabwe is a God fearing nation and Zimbabweans abide by the word of God.

    In Paul’s letter to the Christians at Philippi, he wrote, “Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse.” (Phil. 4.8 )

    Zimbabwe we too can honor our leaders. We too can refuse to scorn them—even when we may question their integrity. A house divided against itself cannot stand.
    Let us unite and work together in the rebuilding of our beloved Zimbabwe!

    Can you imagine the bus driver falling asleep while the bus is full of passengers, imagine you as a driver falling asleep while driving, oh imagine in your business as Donkey has said inthe past that he owns some, finding the managing director asleep while on duty inthe office that is or while attending a special meeting to map out the best strutage for the organisations future properity and here he is he dozing, what will be your first reaction and how will you feel about it……………food for thought

    one thing pple should know they shldn’t brag abt all these things in the world, even bragging abt puttin the whites in their place, bragging abt the evil they do and even encouraging others to do the same.
    the world and everything that is in it belongs to God. and all things were created to glorify God. as an individual u shld ask yoself whether wat u a doin glorifies God or the devil.

    this website and newzimbabwe have negative attitudes towards vaMugabe.Zvakashata ndizvo zvamunoda. VaMugabe is a biz man and a hard working President. He doesn’t sleep thinking and planning how best to avoid the whites from re taking Zimbabwe, asi imi munorara kunganganwa kuti kudze kudei, as long as u get yr buy one get one free muMorrison vatodaka. What ever bad things or pictures u say about vaMugabe hatidzokere s****. We love this man and zvekurara kwavo is not something u shld be ashamed of.His presence is only needed, so kurara kana kusarara hazvina basa.
