Talented Ghanaian actress, Lydia Forson is not too certain about the fate of the people of Zimbabwe after 'forcing' their leader, President Mugabe out of power.
According to the actress, countries who have over the years faced similar revolution and transitions ended up being 'cursed' by them.
The actress in a twitter comment indicated that she prays Zimbabwe becomes an exception after their longest leader, Robert Mugabe, stepped down.
The outspoken actress in her comment clarified that though she does not support dictatorship, she is a bit concerned about what the country goes through after the exit of President Mugabe.
“I’m not as interested in Mugabe’s resignation as I am with what comes after. There are too many examples of countries that have been through this and turned out far worse off than they were with the “dictators” they did away with. I just hope Zimbabwe is the exception,” Lydia said on twitter.
The Ghanaian actress who is a bit worried about recent political development in Zimbabwe, indicated that as long as Africa continues to wallow in blissful ignorance, the continent will depend 100% on western media and their idea of who is a good or bad leader for Africa.

Lydia Forson stressed that, “I’m not for dictatorship of any kind, but I despise it the same way I do western propaganda, neo colonialism and “re-colonialism” through media influence.”
The actress also added that, “You can’t even speak openly about these things without western media misrepresenting it. They’ll gleefully talk about a leader oppressing his people, but never their own continued “institutional” oppression of the African continent and black race as a whole...”
“It’s amazing how women are often held responsible for a man’s fall from grace, yet seldom are they applauded for a man’s achievements. #GraceMugabe,” Lydia said in a chain of tweets.
President Robert Mugabe resigned on Tuesday November 21, after the military seized power for some days amid mass protest.
A letter from Mr Mugabe said the decision was voluntary, and that he had made it to allow a smooth transfer of power, the Reuters news agency reported on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, Emmerson Mnangagwa, the Vice President is to be sworn in as the new President of Zimbabwe.
