It's a conspiracy, you know...all those "pigs and dogs" that are trying to bring down the "saintly" Robert Mugabe are only hurting the people of the country.

At least that's what the official line will be...

Mugabe's neighbors need to start exerting some influence before this Hurricane Katrina of a Presidency makes Idi Amin look like child's play. The people of Zimbabwe deserve better.

Well if inflation has risen by 1000% in the country then I expect their tickets will be going up again soon. This is a country that needs some serious help, and its not going to get it until Mugabe is removed.

There's a reason I saw tons of Zimbabweans holding their passports and one-way tickets out of JNB.

500% hmm that should cover the cost of revamping Mrs Mugabe's wardrobe.
