Letter to Zimbabwe's Ambassador

I urge your government to release Roy Bennett from prison and drop the ridiculous charges of "terrorism" leveled by the government against him.
Anyone can see what is going on here. "Terrorism" is the new "communism" and whenever a government wants to get rid of somebody making life uncomfortable, it characterizes the opposition activity as "terrorist" and is done with that person.
Let's be blunt here: No party or person has the right to govern a modern, and purportedly, democratic country forever.
Mr. Mugabe is an embarrassment to Zimbabwe and his horrific campaign against those who oppose him deserves naught but disdain from the international community.
He is 85. He should take himself and his party out of the equation and let a new generation determine the direction of Zimbabwe.
