It's good to hear from you after a long while.
You say, " the problems besetting our beloved Zimbabwe are far greater than just Mr Blair, the land issue (which is very legitimate and had to be resolved) and the racism of a greater majority of the white people (which also is not in dispute at all!)". Why are you talking about Blair? I was very specifically arguing about why we shouldn't re-invent Tsvangirai.
When I read your letter I realised that you are frustrated because it seems I do not tow your line as you expect me to, as you said, "I've tried my best to show you". As I have always said Radical, do not force people to accept your ideas. People will always have their views on issues. It's not a scandal to disagree. If I am guilty of having a passion for criticising Tsvangirai (which is based on sound facts) then it's equally okay for you to spill out your passion against President Mugabe. No one condemns you as you do to other people when they hold different opinions on these matters. Its sad that you do not realise the simple fact that you are as passionate for Mugabe and yet you try and stand up to admonish me. Isn't that hypocritical?
You say, "Tsvangirai may be as ugly or as dull or whatever any intellectual like yourself may label him but he is our only hope!" That's your problem. Because you see him as your only hope then you do not want him to stand scrutiny. I am sure you wouldn't want to have a president who has not been scrutinised. If you want, then fine, but I do not, hence my scrutiny of Tsvangirai.
You say, "I started writing myself hoping characters like you could see the picture!" That's the problem. You were so convinced in your mind that you would go out, tell people your story and hope that they would consume it passively. No Radical. There are so many pictures out there and even if we see your picture, we might decide to change it for us to accept it.
You say, "THE STORY IS MUCH BIGGER THAN YOUR PROGRAMMED INTELLECTUAL MIND SEEMS TO GRASP!" You assume that I am programmed, well fine. And you are not? I am surprised why you would even waste your time talking to programmed minds? Are you really going to attempt to waste your time talking to programmed minds? You never cease to amaze!
You say, "I love to be "corrected" where I am wrong!" defensive, in the know how and very confrontational".
I wonder why you put corrected in quotes? Maybe you are suggesting that you are never wrong.
"THE ONLY WAY FORWARD IS THE CONVENING OF A TRUTH AND RECONCILIATION COMMISSION LIKE THE ONE THAT WAS DONE HERE IN RSA WHERE I AM AT THE MOMENT!" Why do you think that the mere convening of this body would end all our problems? It beats me. Or you are trying to say this commission might be one way to deal with a certain specific issue?
