Mugabe's World of Wonder.
Hey, Robert Mugabe! Ever heard of fences? It seems an American Envoy took a wrong turn and Zimbabwe's ever hyper security junta flipped out and claim that they would have been justified in capping his ass.
Christopher Dell had inadvertently walked into a poorly marked military area while walking in Harare's National Botanical Gardens, the US embassy said.The presidential spokesman went on to say:
A Zimbabwe presidential spokesman said Mr Dell was lucky to be alive.Zimbabwe's foreign ministry said Mr Dell had shown "flagrant disregard" for Zimbabwe's security laws.
"Elsewhere, and definitely in America, he would have been a dead man."People out there in cyberspace may correct me on this but I am relatively sure that America and most other nations on the planet do not have "poorly marked military areas" in any sense and they do not tend to have secure military areas next to national botanical gardens where people are encouraged to come and stroll around. Most of the time if you venture towards a military area you are arrested or turned back at gunpoint long before the authorities need to shoot you. But then, since we are dealing with the President of Zimbabwe, aka The Mad Hatter, this "military area" is probably linked to by numerous rabbit holes and looking-glasses so maintaining a secure perimeter might be a challenge.
