The US president Barrack Obama will be attending Nelson Mandela’s funeral accompanied by 3 former US presidents – Bush, Clinton and Carter. His Excellency Robert Gabriel Mugabe, the president of Zimbabwe, will also be attending along with 3 former presidents of Zimbabwe – R. G. Mugabe, R. G. Mugabe and R. G. Mugabe.

The Institutional Capacity Assessment by the Department of Social Services (DSS) noted that Zimbabwe was in a crisis situation where the ratio of Social Workers to the population of service users is wildly out of proportion. In Zimbabwe the ratio of children to Social Workers was in the order of 49 587:1 social worker. This is in stark contrast with other countries in the region: South Africa: 250:1 social worker / Botswana: 1 867:1 social worker / Namibia: 4 300: social worker

ZimAsset is not a plan; it’s a wish list. It doesn’t address the basic crisis Zimbabwe’s economy is in. – Eddie Cross

ZimAsset sets a very tight timetable + ambitious goals. Not encouraging that Deputy Minister of Finance is running 1hr late for his presentation on it. – Amanda Atwood

Zimbabwe is unable to access IMF & World Bank because we’re not in good standing. It’s not sanctions. If you don’t repay, you can’t borrow. – Dr Kadenge

The Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe has moved to quash reports of a return of the Zimbabwean dollar: “The Reserve Bank wishes to unequivocally put it on record that such reports have no basis whatsoever. As monetary authorities, we wish to assure the business community and members of the public that there are no plans to reintroduce the Zimbabwean dollar in the near future.” – Acting Governor Dr Charity Dhliwayo

Power cuts? Oh well. No water? What’s new? What is it about us Zimbabweans asks @kay__sweets. Do we really not care?
