A partridge in a pear-shaped tree


This country. I tell you, I’m starting to lose my patience now. There’s never a dull moment, and I reckon other Zimbos are on the verge of losing their rag too.

Take this whole cash thing, for example. Spend all this money organising a currency change-over, and decided to do it over the fecking holidays? Are you kidding me? How many families are going to be apart because bank employees, security personel, catering people and all the other related and ancillary staff are working on Gono’s pet project?

The only good change I’ve noticed around here, since I returned from the Falls, is the reappearance of stuff on the shelves. Granted not all’s back to normal in the shops, but there’s loads of stuff back that wasn’t there before – mari yako chete.

This fecking country, I tell you. Our Zimbabwe.

  1. Gdn ma one, or ma zero 6 in this case. I like the fact that his ‘failure is not an option’ mantra is off the shelf. Coz failure seems to be the only option now, its a question of how catastrophic/cataclysmic it will be.

  2. Media road kill update 101: (apologies in advance, its like the macabreness of staring rabidly at a road accident)

    A model who claimed she was raped at the Manchester United Christmas party may be charged herself, it was claimed last night.

    Police sources say there are glaring inconsistencies between the written, audio and video statements by the 26-year-old woman.

    Last week, the club’s 19-year-old Northern Irish defender Jonny Evans was interviewed then bailed.

    He is understood to have told friends he did not lay a finger on the woman and was targeted by her.

    The alleged victim is understood to have given differing accounts of how she she came to be alone with the footballer, despite arriving at the party in Manchester with her boyfriend.

    The source added: “She did not stand up well to questioning and seemed very muddled about events leading up to the alleged incident and what happened afterwards.

    “Towards the end, she was even starting to express doubts about whether it was the footballer we had taken in for questioning or another of his team-mates.

    “The commonly-held view here is that it would not only be a nightmare to prosecute but that this young lady could be wasting our time.

  3. It’s these women who are letting down the real victims of rape. I reckon for every rapist we castrate, every wolf-cryer should have their tits lopped off.


  4. You made some respectable factors there. I seemed on the web for the problem and located most people will associate with with your website.
