Johnny: Mommy, today after school a strange man gave me a chocolate!
Mommy (freezing up) Oh God Johnny, I hope you didn' t accept it, you know we warned you about strangers!
Johnny: Mom, but he was smiling and said he wanted to be friends.
Mom: (Oh Jesus) Johnny, you don't need to be his friend! I'm fetching you after school tomorrow! (shouts to husband "Mike, come here a second, I think we got a f****ng serious problem!)
Lol, that was the scenario that played in my head when I read this article by the Daily telegraph. Here was old Popcorn face, returning after a three week globe trot with nary a bone in his hands to show for all his efforts. Frustrated and angry with those he was counting on to assist him with the much needed Zim bail out, it all looked like a total flop. But, hey presto! Here we see an old uncle stepping in and giving him more than all the others put together. One shot. So there goes Morg the man with idiotic grin on his face, racing home to share the great news!
Look, what I got!
A reciprocal arrangement no doubt. I guess those little details will be ironed out in due course. Yesirree, that old uncle has got some interesting plans and some very urgent needs to take care of...
Zimbabwe secures £600 million loan from China
China has stepped in to bail out Zimbabwe with a £600 million loan, despite fears the coalition government is in danger of collapse.
Beijing has long been accused of ignoring human rights concerns in its dealings with African governments, and is a longstanding ally of the Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe.
The credit line was secured by Tendai Biti, the finance minister of the unity government and one of the most senior members of the former opposition Movement for Democratic Change.
It is several times more than the total pledged to Morgan Tsvangirai, the prime minister and MDC leader, on a three-week fundraising tour of Europe and America he has just completed.
The West is holding back on promises of huge amounts of reconstruction aid until the coalition proves that it is able to implement change from the policies of Mr Mugabe, which ruined the country.
"The international community is ready and willing to help Zimbabwe, but they need us to help ourselves by standing by the political commitments we have undertaken," said Mr Tsvangirai, sitting under a portrait of Mr Mugabe.
However, the unity government is coming under pressure from continued abuses by Mr Mugabe's Zanu-PF party.
Mr Tsvangirai said that while the MDC would not withdraw from the unity government "divorce" could not be ruled out if "outstanding" political issues were not quickly resolved.
He described an MDC boycott of a cabinet meeting as "frustration" at "peaceful protesters being beaten by our police, innocent individuals arrested on trumped up charges and continued vilification of the MDC by the state media". Such issues would have to be resolved within days of Mr Mugabe's return from Libya, where he is attending an African Union summit, he added.
