    yah! its either Mugabe is a fool or he is a lunatic. why allocate 15m to defence and 10 to education? he knows that for his he will always buy degrees so he does not care about what happens to the education sector? the deployment of dokora and mavhaire is a clear testimony that Mugabe wants to send the country back to the stone age. goodbye good education, goodbye electricity.
