No other details were released about the incident.

    Claims it was tight shoes – i guess its time he paid a visit to singapore like his baas? I guess if his doctor says its tight shoes i guess its right. Me I would hazard a guess hes got a blood pressure problem. May he have another one and not awaken.

    Wow, whoever would have thought there could be so much hatred by Zimbabweans. They are renowned for their peace loving, good will nature. It serves you right, you Zanu PF militants. You deserve every bit of hatred that comes your way! I just hope you read how much you are despised.

    why is it, good people seem to pass away too young or suffer a mishap rendering them incapable of fulfilling their goals. On the other hand, truly evil people seem to live for ever no matter what amount of misery they dish out. Is there really a god? Maybe there is a god but he bypasses Africa?

      This problem is discussed in depth in the Book of Job.

      I’m not sure it comes to any solid conclusion after the various arguments have been put.

      I don’t see any sign that God has in any way altered the course of events during the past two thousand years. The wicked flourish until the good fight back; and in doing so, the good often become evil themselves.

      Yes, god is there. See, he works in strange ways. He takes his good children early, before they mess it up. He then rests them in his kingdom for ever. The bad ones he lets live long so they mess it up big time. He then sends them straight to the fires of hell with no appeal.

    Pity it was not Bob wearing the badly fitting shoes, I guess his expensive Singspore specials are a bit more comfortable.

    Senior Comm General the Almighty Chihuri attributed his blackout to working long hours in recent times and a mix-up in the shoes he wore for the occasion. Chihuri said ;-
    “I have been working overnight for quite some time. The situation has been exacerbated or worsened by the fact that there was a mix-up of my shoes. The right shoe was mixed up with the left one. The right shoe is a bit small and it is an old shoe so my toes were burning because of the tightness of the shoe and there was no circulation (of blood) in that leg that caused me to be dizzy and then fell down.
    So always ensure you put on a pair of the same shoes – not one of yours and one of your wifes !

    I love these “immortal” leaders! Why was he trying to explain sickness away? Nobody is devoid of illness, but our leaders believe they are exempt forgetting that God is just. The sun shines for the rich, the poor, the powerful as well as the powerless.
    God is great!

    You would have thought, with all the fines channelled into his bank account, that he could have afforded a decent pair of shoes? Or is Bata also shut down?
