Robert Mugabe to Present Africa’s Position at Climate Change Summit

Here’s how you know you can take the global climate change summit seriously: Zimbabwe’s President, Robert Mugabe, is attending “where he will present Africa’s position and needs on climate change mitigation to world leaders.”

Robert Mugabe is probably one of the world’s foremost experts on how to stop human beings from emitting carbon; nothing stops people from generating carbon dioxide quite like massacres:

The so-called Gukurahundi massacres remain the darkest period in the country’s post-independence history, when more than 20,000 civilians were killed by Robert Mugabe’s feared Fifth Brigade.

No one has accepted the blame for the violence, but the recent release of historical documents has shed new light on those responsible.

The wide-ranging reports include diplomatic correspondence, intelligence assessments and raw intelligence garnered by spies recruited from within the Zimbabwean government.

These papers – augmented by my investigations and the testimony of Zimbabwean witnesses – appear to substantiate what survivors and scholars have always suspected: Mugabe, then prime minister, was the prime architect of well-planned and systematically executed mass killings.
