Jimmy Carter Denied Zimbabwe Visa

Zimbabwe’s dictator Robert Mugabe has just forbidden a winner of the Nobel Peace Prize from entering his country. I’d say that sends a message. Carter was going to visit on a humanitarian mission with former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan and former South African President Nelson Mandela, also a Nobel Peace Prize winner.

This is an indication of Mugabe’s contempt for peace and a “measure of the Zimbabwean leader’s disdain for international opinion at a time when deepening hunger, raging hyperinflation and the collapse of health, sanitation and education services have crippled Zimbabwe.”
