Mugabe’s warm welcome for first Zimbabwean Olympic skier

Mugabe’s warm welcome for first Zimbabwean Olympic skier | Radio Netherlands Worldwide Cartoon by Damien Glez

For the first time ever, Zimbabweans will be represented in the Winter Olympics. This is thanks to Luke Steyn, a 20-year-old Alpine skier who war born in Harare and grew up in Switzerland.

The Games, being held in Sochi, Russia, just opened on Friday, so it remains to be seen how Steyn will perform. But here’s one possible scenario that cartoonist Damien Glez imagined in view of recent economic news. On Wednesday, the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe (RBZ) announced that the Chinese yuan, the Japanese yen, the Indian rupee and the Australian dollar would all be accepted as legal tender in Zimbabwe.

    So let me get this straight.white people are not allowed to own farms or businesses in Zimbabwe because they’re not “indigenous ” or Zimbabwean enough but they’re good enough to represent Zimbabwe at the Olympics, tennis or other sports?Has Zimbabwe become a giant lunatic asylum populated by mad people?

  6. Zvakwana says:

    Zen you hit the nail on the head the past 8 months have witnessed many indescribable and unbelievable revelations that can only be described as lunatic.

    Mugabe hates or likes anyone when it suits him. Nyoka.
