via Mugabe’s mystery | The Zimbabwean 16 July 2014 by Jera
Robert Mugabe has come under severe criticism following remarks he made in the wake of Zimbabwe’s first successful conjoined twin surgery. Kupakwashe and Tapiwanaishe Chitiyo were successfully separated by a team of Zimbabwean surgeons at Harare Hospital.
“Our doctors are doing wonders in other countries such as South Africa, Australia and in Europe. Our people distinguish themselves, but this is distinction now, separation of Siamese twins right here in the heart of Zimbabwe, in this hospital, is God-given I must say. It’s something unbelievable that’s why I call it a mystery.”
If one looked up the word ‘condescension,’ it is very likely Mugabe’s speech would be listed as an example.
Did the man not know that his own doctors were capable of such work! He probably did not, which is why he flies out to Singapore each time there is the slightest ache in the joints of his pinkie finger. Perhaps now the president might cut down on his expensive visits to the Far East and face the germs of Parirenyatwa Hospital along with the rest of us.
