Mugabe's latest outrage....

Can't wait to see this museum!

Its economy is crumbling and its people are struggling to survive in the face of nearly 4,000 per cent inflation, food and fuel shortages and the prospect of power cuts for up to 20 hours a day. Yet Zimbabwe's president, Robert Mugabe, is spending £2 million on perhaps his most grandiose project yet - a monument to himself.

Work has already begun on a museum, dedicated to the life and dubious achievements of the 83-year-old president, in his home district of Zvimba, 65 miles west of the capital, Harare.

"As we speak right now, ground work for the construction of the museum is at an advanced stage," a government minister said. "The president wants the project to be speeded up so he can open it next year, possibly after winning the [presidential] elections."

There was a roman emperor who did much the same - while his country was having a rough time, he spent a fortune to construct his own vast pleasure-palace.

As soon as he died, the palace was burried and forgotten about.
