Mugabe and Zimbabwe’s elections

Today, Zimbabweans are voting in presidential and parliamentary elections. It is true that the country is now on its knees and few would disagree that a radical change of direction is one of the few things that can turn things around. Withought a very significant change in government, I don’t see how that can happen.

Again, given the reality of Zimbabwe’s current political climate, there is no way this can be called a fair election. So far it is more fair than previous ones, but that’s not saying much. I don’t know… I hope it all goes well and there isn’t any violence.

At the end of the day, the Mugabe regime has shamed the entire continent. They have come to represent the very worst of Zimbabwe and Africa. Shame on you


The Onion

The Onion is a hilarious paper. The first time I read a story on the website, I was shocked because I didn’t realise that the articles there are satirical. I don’t  remember what the story was, but I eventually figured out it was a joke after checking the BBC, SKY, CNN and a couple of other news sites!

This is one of their videos. I cannot tell a lie, I’m conflicted. I think I should be offended by it, but I find it hilarious. Enjoy!
