Letters from Zimbabwe

One man in a grocery store started shouting about having to wait for so long and asked for the manager. Two security guards standing at the exit doors did not come forward, and instead retreated out of sight. He continued shouting. The owner was perhaps 30, and he had a lot of money. He wore a t-shirt with the face of Robert Mugabe. this is the face of Zimbabwe where only 400 election observers to watch 9,231 polling stations. It is a mockery. This is the best Africa can do?
