94% Unemployment? Order Caviar And Crab!

Mugabe to celebrate 85th birthday

I had read this in argentine papers few minutes ago, found an english source for the Spanish language impaired of this forum:

"It is the 85th birthday of President Mugabe this month and the zealots of his Zanu PF party are determined that it should be an occasion that their great leader will never forget. In recent days they have been out soliciting “donations” from corporate Zimbabwe and have drawn up a wish list that is scarcely credible in a land where seven million citizens survive on international food aid, 94 per cent are jobless and cholera rampages through a population debilitated by hunger. The list includes 2,000 bottles of champagne (Moët & Chandon or ’61 Bollinger preferred); 8,000 lobsters; 100kg of prawns; 4,000 portions of caviar; 8,000 boxes of Ferrero Rocher chocolates; 3,000 ducks; and much else besides. A postscript adds: “No mealie meal” - the ground corn staple on which the vast majority of Zimbabweans survived until the country’s collapse rendered even that a luxury."

"Those who prefer to give in cash, not kind, are invited to send “donations” of between $45,000 and $55,000 to a US dollar bank account in the name of the 21st February Movement, a youth organisation controlled by Zanu PF and named after the date of the President’s birthday."

Anyone care to put in a bit of their $$ for this wonderful event?

I don't even know what to say. This is so arrogant and disgusting on the part of a government that is *supposed* to serve the people.

I hope people don't put up with this.

Do the French still have the blue prints for the Guillotine?

It would be a nice birthday gift for Mugabe and they could immediately try it on him and his bootlickers.
