and I'm sure it will make others on MN who I know have links to the country sad too life in Zimbabwe at the moment.

Last month I posted that inflation there was estimated at 11,000,000% in August.....it must have been much higher as in July it was officially 230,000,000%, and they reckon it could be 1,000,000,000& by the end of this month sad.

How can one man, and a few of his friends, brought the country this in the space of just 10yrs???

I dream one day of being able to take the DS's back to Zimbabwe to show them that part of their heritage (DS1 and 2 went 2yrs ago for 3 weeks) - but I can't see that happening anytime in the foreseeable future sad

Such a tragedy. The breadbasket of Africa turned into a place where people starve and go in fear of their lives if they speak up.

Thabo Mbeki and the other African leaders should be ashamed. Doubt it, though.
