to celebration of tyranny - Iran President Mahmud Ahmadinejad is
not welcome in Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe National Students
Union castigates in the strongest of terms the invitation of the
biggest tyrant in the Middle East, the notorious Iranian Leader,
Mahmud Ahmadinejad to open this year's trade fair in Bulawayo.
The Union calls upon all progressive students to shun the Zimbabwe
Trade Fair starting from the 19th - 24th of April 2010 as
a way of showing our displeasure and disgust over the invitation
of one of the World's famous human rights violators.
The invite of the dictatorial
leader by President Mugabe is an insult to the Zimbabweans at large
and other peace loving nations. The invitation clearly shows that
ZANU Pf still celebrates tyranny symbolized by the presence of the
corrupt Iran Leader in Zimbabwe. The action by Mugabe corrupts the

that have promoted corruption in Iran, many of his close associates
have been appointed to positions without proper qualifications.
In June 2009, he led a series of violence during the Presidential
election period and rigged the outcome of the elections in his favour.
Before the elections, it was discovered that USD1. 058billion was
misused in the same manner Mugabe's Gono ran the quasifiscal
policies to lure voters to vote for the Zimbabwean Dictator. In
2007, the Iranian leader was critised for fueling religious conflicts
after attacking Xianity and Judaism.
that invitations of dignitaries to national events like the Trade
fair should be done in consultation with all the three principals
to the Global
Political Agreement not on the decree of Mugabe.
Human rights defenders
should denounce the invitation and send a clear message to Mugabe
that enough is enough the old man should be serious. It is less
than two weeks since the departure of the South African spoilt Youth
League President Malema who was also in the country on a ZANU Pf
ticket to preach about his misguided policies.
Zimbabweans only want
peace and stability at the moment and for Mugabe to continue dining
and wining with detractors, killers, torturers, is unacceptable.
Zimbabweans need clean blood to bless our trade Fair as the country
is in the process of trying to attract investors and also heal the
