Why’re we allowing this monster to enter our shores?

This is not a post about how foreigners are allowed into our country, or how their children are being given places in our education institutions. So, please do not even start with that.

No, this post is about my country bending over, stooping to kiss the feet of a murderer – one who butchers men, women, children, infants, pregnant women, and elderly people.

His soldiers, no doubt acting on his orders, buries people – including children – alive.

They burn old people alive.

They cut off tongues.

They dismember limbs.

They cut open the bellies of pregnant women to reveal living breathing foetuses.

They rape children and elderly women.

They force children to watch their parents being shot.

They force fathers to rape their daughters – and then shoot them both.

They force people to dig mass graves – and then force them to stand in them before being shot.

“A four-month-old infant was axed three times and the mother forced to eat the flesh of her dead child. An 18-year-old girl was raped by six soldiers and then killed. An 11-year-old child had her vagina burnt with plastic and was later shot. Twin infants were buried alive.”

This is what Robert Mugabe does.

I am thus utterly appalled and completely disgusted that my country would open the door to welcome someone like him – to come here “to arrange post-graduate studies for his daughter” while he butchers the daughters of so many others back in his own country.

What is my government thinking?

Yet, this is not the first time that Robert Mugabe has come to Singapore. He’s been here several times before – for medical treatment. Someone related to me, acouple of years ago, that she had seen Mugabe coming out of a shopping centre at Orchard Road, with trucks parked by a side road presumably to truck off the things he had bought. She said he was accompanied by a gang of bodyguards.

I thought she was just joking or may have been wrong.

Also two years ago, we decorated another murderer, a Burmese killer, by naming a flower after him. In 2007, we also allowed the strongman of the Burmese junta, Than Shwe, to seek medical treatment here. Our Prime Minister defended his government’s decision by saying:

“Somebody who is sick, he wants to come to Singapore, he needs treatment and you’re telling me that I shouldn’t treat him because he is not a good man? It goes against the Hippocratic oath of doctors.”

Dear Prime Minister, to allow Mugabe into our shores goes against our collective conscience, knowing full well what this maniac does to his own people, including children.

How shall the Prime Minister defend Mugabe’s latest visit – which is “to arrange post-graduate studies for his daughter”?

It disgusts me – that we would stoop so low, bend over so much, and practically be cowed into letting a murderous maniac to set foot in our country.

The Government should grow some backbone and not sell Singaporeans’ souls to an animal like Mugabe.

We do not need to pander to the likes of such an animal who deserves to be in jail and have the key thrown away.

This is a monster who disembowels pregnant women, for goodness’ sake!

‎”Neshango line. February 3 1983. Mass beating of villagers and shooting of two young pregnant girls, followed by their being bayoneted open to reveal the still moving foetuses.”

“One old lady who was found in her hut was raped and Five Brigade then set fire to a plastic bag and burned the old lady with it, setting fire to her blanket. She died three weeks later from the burns.”

“Mkhonyeni. January 1983. The first woman to die in this area was accused of feeding dissidents. She was pregnant and was bayoneted open to kill the baby. She died later.”

“One man died after terrible mutilations which included having his jaw broken and his tongue cut out. This man ran away and was found by his family in a neighbouring village. He took eight days to die, without medical care.”

“A four-month-old infant was axed three times and the mother forced to eat the flesh of her dead child. An 18-year-old girl was raped by six soldiers and then killed. An 11-year-old child had her vagina burnt with plastic and was later shot. Twin infants were buried alive.”

  1. “Somebody who is sick, he wants to come to Singapore, he needs treatment and you’re telling me that I shouldn’t treat him because he is not a good man? It goes against the Hippocratic oath of doctors.”

    I don’t disagree with the hippocratic oath cited here. But of ALL countries in the world, he wants to come to singapore to get treatment? Why don’t you think he wants to go to London or say France or Germany? Because none of these countries will want to treat him!! Instead, he will be arrested like Pinochet. This country will take in all kinds of sins as long as there is money to make. I am disgusted by our politicians.

  2. Forgive me for pointing out the obvious :

    The Hippocratic Oath is sworn by doctors.

    Not politicians.

  3. I bet we are also holding some of his wealth here.
    This country is ruled by pragmatism..meaning there is no moral philosophy in governance at all.
    Money rules!

    This man is under sanctions by EU & USA. Only in Asia where there is no human rights respects will a country grant him & his family assistance. When his daughter was enrolled in HK, there were public outcry to expel her. Looks like you will see more bodyguards in Singapore just to protect this dictator’s princess.

  5. What happened to the hippocratic oath here then?
    (Dr Poh Soo Kai’s re-arrest in 1976)
    The Government also alleged that he had advised ‘student agitators’ and had supplied medicine to a communist activist said to have been injured by his own bomb while trying to assassinate a local factory manager. This latter allegation was based on a statement made by a political detainee which was later retracted.
