Politicians and portraits in Zimbabwe

TOP del.icio.us

Where can I get a picture of the honourable Prime Minister? I need one, we all need one, to go up beside the picture of the honourable President. After all, it was never the law (I have been assured by several lawyers) to hang a picture of the President up in public rooms. Therefore I must assume people did it from patriotism (not fear). And now that we have two leaders, and we are still patriotic, we must have pictures of both our two leaders up. For to have only one picture up would indicate that we did it because we wished to be involved in partisan politics. Now that we have two parties and two leaders ruling us, (long live the signing of the agreement!), both pictures would indicate patriotic support. While one picture would indicate partisan support. And no pictures would indicate . . . you like a clean wall and are waiting, along with the rest of us.
