    Zimbabweans are shopping like there's no tomorrow. With police patrolling the aisles of Harare's electrical shops to enforce massive government-ordered price cuts, the widescreen TVs were the first things to go, for as little as £20. Across the country, shoes, clothes, toiletries and different kinds of food were all swept from the shelves as a nation with the world's fastest shrinking economy gorged itself on one last spending spree.
    Car dealers said officials were trying to force them to sell vehicles at the official exchange rate, effectively meaning that a car costing £15,000 could be had for £30 by changing money on the blackmarket. The owners of several dealerships have been arrested.

  7. Just remember to call up your favorite Lord of War before heading there. Classic movie.
  8. Amazing movie.. Warlord! LOL.. The younger brother does such a good job in the movie.
  9. Jared Leto I think he is..
  10. Why Mr. Mugabe hasn't been taken out is beyond me. Rarely has one 'leader' done so much to harm his own people. Zimbabwe was once the bread basket of Africa, now they are a net importer of food. Just boggles the mind.
