Um Bob hands Kirsty Coventry US$100k



That must have hurt for Um Bob - admitting that a white person has done something good for Zimbabwe AND giving them some money for it.

I'm surprised she didn't have her medal 'liberated' from her by some of the country's 'War Veterans'.
Given the rate of inflation in that country was that Zim 82 Gajillion Dollars? Did she recieve it from the back of the convoy of Arctics bringing it in? Who sorted the logistic Supply chain?

Answers damn you! Coming in here with half a story.....mutter ........harrumph
I particularly liked this bit,

The U.S. dollars, scarce in a country struggling with an economic crisis marked by a severe shortage of foreign currency, were carried in a briefcase by Zimbabwe's central bank governor.
Makes them sound like one of those old game shows where they'd have five or ten thousand pounds on display for the 'And here's what they could win' bit. And is of course in no way reflective of how Bob has run the country's economy into the ground. :)
