Worried about Zimbabwe

I'm watching events unfold down in Zimbabwe quite intently. The ruling party there are still trying to deny that what is happening there is a coup, but if it walks like a coup, swims like a coup and quacks like a coup, what else can you call it? But I don't mean that in a bad sense: Robert Mugabe is - or was - a tyrant by anyone's standards; they should have booted him out long ago. My only concern is, what will now replace him? It's one thing to get rid of a despotic crackpot, quite another to replace him with something even worse. Thus while Zimbabwe might be miles away, and it isn't as if we don't have enough to be worried about here at home; but I think we all will be keeping an eye on how events unfold out there in the coming days and weeks, I fear with growing concern.
