Mugabe 85th Birthday party shopping list


This beggars belief but I suppose when any country is so far down the cr@pper as Zim. insanity always follows:

"......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.

Western diplomats and aid workers were stunned when shown the list. “It’s just appalling. It’s like they are either completely oblivious to what’s happening in their country, or completely impervious and just don’t care,” said one. “It’s shocking and obscene,” said another, who noted that lobsters were unobtainable in Zimbabwe and would have to be flown in.

You have to hand it to the mad old cnut, he has class.

Presumably, he's expecting a large turnout from the diplomatic corps?

Mine's the windcheater made from the skin of my political opponents, thanks.
He'll get it all. What doesn't come from the Chinese and North Korean Embassies will be donated by the significant number of people who have done all right in the last ten years. Did I say Bredenkamp? Did I say Rautenbach? Davy? Mujuru? Aujan?

Happy birthday, Bob.


Barclays Bank is still doing business in Zimbabwe. Now we know where some of that £6BN will be going !

Maybe they could send some penicillin to treat the mad fool's syphillis ?
How about a express delivery of precision munitions to his palace,courtesy of a flight of Tornado GR.4s?.

Assuming the crabs have some serviceable ones going spare for the week?.
If you think that's bad, have a look at his missus, Grace Mugabe.

Known as "The First Shopper" rather than the First Lady, she has withdrawn over 5 million US dollars from Zimbabwe's central bank to go on international shopping trips, often commandeering airliners from the national airline to take her abroad.

That's a bit like Cherie Blair turning up at the Bank of England with a withdrawal slip in hand before popping down to Heathrow and jumping aboard the first empty BA 747 she can find.

Grace's latest expedition took her to Hong Kong as she's banned from Europe and America. With nearly 100,000 dollars in cash burning a hole in her pocket, she was soon out of her £2,000 a night suite at the Shangri-La and in to the designer shops in Harbour City.

Unfortunately, she forgot that she wasn't in Zimbabwe and when a photographer snapped her, she had her bodyguard beat the cr@p out of him before getting a few left hooks in herself.

I have an uncanny ability to see into the future. I see Bob and Grace standing in front of a brick wall. They're protesting their innocence. Grace is wearing a blindfold. Bob has just swamped. A group of Zimbabwean squaddies is standing at ease in front of them and an officer is giving orders.

Can't think what's going on in my vision. Anybody got any ideas?


The Mugabe clan will not be facing a firing squad. Ammo is too expensive !

No, they will be chopped up by civvies and sold as bush meat !

(I wouldn't eat it though, it's a bit too rich for me).
