Disease agents

Whatever happens in Robert Mugabe’s Zimbabwe, they know whose fault it is:

Zimbabwe’s information minister has blamed the British government for a cholera outbreak which has killed almost 800 people, claiming his country has been a victim of a “biological” attack…

“I would like to affirm with factual information on how cholera was brought to Zimbabwe,” Ndlovu said.

And here comes the “factual information“:

“Cholera is a calculated, racist attack on Zimbabwe by the unrepentant former colonial power, which has enlisted support from its American and Western allies so that they can invade the country,” Information Minister Sikhanyiso Ndlovu told a news conference.

“The cholera epidemic in Zimbabwe is a serious biological, chemical-war force, a genocidal onslaught, on the people of Zimbabwe by the British,” he said. “It’s a genocide of our people.”

One day earlier, Mr. Mugabe had proclaimed in a nationally broadcast speech that “there is no cholera,” comments his spokesman George Charamba said yesterday were meant as “sarcasm.”

The calculating Brits introduced cholera to Zimbabwe right after they coated Mr Mugabe’s Swiss bank statements with a top-secret substance designed to make every cabinet minister clinically insane.
