Zim spends $16m on Mugabe's birthday, wedding, statues - begs for $20m for flood relief

Zimbabwe struggling to cope after floods and the breach of a dam weeks ago that left 60,000 people marooned.

The spending surfaced at the same time as reports of Robert Mugabe ministers salaries. Some ministers earn over $40,000 a month, in contrast with the average salary of Zimbabweans, at $285-$300 a month.

Mugabe’s 90th birthday bash on 23 February cost more than $1 million.

The cost of Bona Mugabe’s wedding on 1 March cost $5 million.

After the wedding, information leaked that the Zimbabwean government clandestinely appointed North Korea to build two statues of Mugabe at an estimated cost of $5 million.

One statue is a nearly 30-foot high bronze figure worth $3.5 million to be placed in Harare, while the other is a $1.5 million version to be placed in a $3.8 million museum to be built in Mugabe’s rural Zvimba home.

Im just wondering how many people all these millions could feed in Uzumba Maramba Pfungwe. African governments should set their priorities right.This is so annoying and heart breaking.

If scratches are your problem, you can use a jeweler's cloth to help diminish the appearance of any scuffing.
