Robert Mugabe’s Nation of Billionaires

Robert Mugabe’s Nation of Billionaires is on a roll coming up with a new 100 Billion dollar (approximately 66 U.S. Cents) denomination expected to come out soon. Who cares if the German firm stops the supply of paper notes they will just come out with higher denomination except for one minor problem…… their banknotes issued a few months ago loses it value as fast as they can print their money retaining only about a third of its original value. Zimbabwe’s inflation rate skyrocketed to 2.2 million percent earning them the world's highest inflation rate. Money litters the street but no one bothers to pick up the worthless notes that seem to get out of style as soon as it goes out of the government printing agency.

Zimbabwe’s jobless rate is just 80% grappling with chronic shortage of food, fuel and basic commodities with basically almost non-existent production Robert Mugabe continues to spend money like it is going out of style literally.

The end result of his “land reform” whereby confiscating white farmers farm and given to black Zimbabweans mostly to those corrupt relatives and cronies not having a clue how to run the farm. Unable to see his follies Mugabe seems vent on further ruining his nation this time looking into foreign owned firm’s confiscation to be handed over to black Zimbabweans and “friendly cooperative“ foreign investors.

In the name of “black empowerment” and his response to threats of sanctions by Britain and the US he is now poised to grab majority owned foreign firms identifying the firms likely to be “nationalized” and taken over.

Who does Robert Mugabe blame for his nation’s billionaires but the usual suspects……. the “colonial powers” specifically the “imperialist” Britain, their European allies and of course the United States of America out to “sabotage” his ZANU-PF hooligans errr party.

Robert Mugabe needs to link up with Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, the Philippines foremost economist and Garcified president to get some tips on how to squander errr spend government resources during election season while reflecting the splurge as GNP growth. The Philippine experts in Gloria Macapagal Arroyo's administration can act as his advisers of course a hefty fee in gazillion Zimbabwe dollars may not work considering they are street smart like Mafiosi wise guys so some sort of arrangement should be in order.

If only Robert Mugabe was paying attention he could have dismissed his militias and spared his people of being brutalized and terrorized by his goons, all it takes is to use back door operators like they have in the Philippines Comelec (Commission on Elections) and they could have done away with mass intimidation and terror when they can alter the votes in some back room requiring fewer people.

Hunger in Zimbabwe is very real and at the rate their economy is tumbling down the bottomless pit, it only validates the truth of pride before the fall in this quote from Robert Mugabe on hunger:
We are not hungry... Why foist this food upon us? We don't want to be choked. We have enough.
Perhaps he is referring to gazillion Zimbabwean dollars not worth a squat which he confuses for food......enough said, need we say more?
