Psychosis not unique to Zimbabwe

Robert Mugabe still clings rabidly to power as though Zimbabwe might collapse into the earth's crust if the sun rose tomorrow and found that he was no longer president. He believes this even though one loaf of bread (if you can find it), costs $50 000 000 000 forcing the government to now print one hundred billion dollar notes.

This is only a little bit more psyhcotic than our politicians here in Jamaica who obsess over presiding over crime, poverty and the squalid water that sits in the open drains in Spanish Town and in the market at May Pen.

Edit notes: I've inserted this pic with a link to a petition that helped move Mbeki to break his silence. It's outdated but you could still sign in solidarity.
