a lesson for world leaders

The US and Israel have recently had elections, Australia will have elections later this year – and they all have a lot to learn from Zimbabwe on how to win elections no matter how dire the economic and social situation may be.

In the 2008 elections in Zimbabwe, Robert Gabriel MUGABE was re-elected president with 85.5% of the vote.

Today Zimbabwe’s Finance Minister Tendai Biti said that after paying public workers’ salaries last week, the Government has  $USD217  in the bank.

Next time you are feeling poor, remember that you probably have more money than the Government of an entire nation.

The next elections are scheduled for 2013 – he will be hoping that the public will forget that the country had a decade of inflation of 231 million %.
