A Christian's duty to vote for the dictator?

Even within the pseudo-democracy of Zimbabwe where a less dictatorial opposition could potentialy be elected in to power, this man of faith finds it his duty to vote for Mugabe.

"I encourage them to read their lessons from the Bible, for that will give them the strength to continue.

And I tell them stories about how I fought in the liberation struggle. I feel the young have forgotten how Zanu-PF brought us our freedom.

I teach them that in African culture, we respect our elders.

For this reason, I explain, I could never support the opposition for I remember what our president has won for us, even if I don't agree with everything he's done since."
