On a recent trip to Zimbabwe, respected journalist Julian Manyon and his team from Thames Television’s “TV Eye” had the opportunity to sit down with Robert Mugabe, the newly elected Prime Minister. During their conversation, Mugabe spoke at length about his plans to turn Zimbabwe into a one-party state.

When asked about the potential effects of this policy on the new state, Mugabe was quick to defend his position. He argued that a one-party state would provide stability and continuity in the government, something that he felt was essential for a young country like Zimbabwe. While Manyon and his team did not agree with Mugabe’s politics, they couldn’t help but be impressed by his passion and conviction. It is clear that Mugabe is a powerful leader with a vision for his country’s future. Only time will tell if his plan to turn Zimbabwe into a one-party state will be successful.
