The Big Whip-around II

Funds sought for Mugabe birthday

People in Zimbabwe are being asked to contribute funds towards a big birthday party for President Robert Mugabe, who turns 83 on 21 February.

This is while Zimbabwe is mired in its worst economic crisis, with annual inflation at a record 1,593% - the world's highest; there is record unemployment, the health and education sectors are failing and there is widespread malnutrition.

The cost of this bash - a mere 300 million Zimbabwe dollars (US$1.2m).

I'd happily contribute.
A round of 7.62 behind the ear of this Marxist bastard.
