Mugabe the odd one out at UN oceans summit

It is increasingly becoming undeniable that Zimbabwe is now in the clutches of a fully-fledged climate change scourge. The rains have been coming late, with their patterns unpredictable and often resulting in heavy flooding; there have been successive droughts; the winters have been too cold and the summers are now too hot, characterised by heat waves, among a host of other climatic changes that have left the country more vulnerable than before. There is no doubt the country is in a fix due to this atmospheric phenomenon. In the face of such challenges, many would like to know what the government is doing with regards to efforts to help safeguard the majority of the citizens from the drastic adverse impacts of climate change — besides the country's president and his usual large delegations of senior government officials attending climate change summits. Attending such summits is one thing and putting in place measures to help reduce the impact of the scourge is another. There is no use in the country continually attending such gatherings if the proposed solutions are not implemented back home. In this article, we seek to prove beyond doubt that the government of Zimbabwe is not in the least bothered by climate change.
