At first I thought this was a satire piece worth of publication in The Onion…
Imagine my lack of surprise when I saw that this is simply a case of business as usual at Turtle Bay, after all it’s hard to argue with Zimbabwe’s credentials for leading a UN panel on the environment and economic development… jewel of Africa that it is:
Zimbabwe’s economy is collapsing, with inflation of 2,200 per cent – the highest in the world. Households can expect just four hours of electricity a day. This has encouraged deforestation, with large areas being stripped of wood for light and heating.
Pity, I was thinking that Zimbabwe would be a frontrunner to lead the UN Human Rights Commission, along with Angola, Belarus, Egypt, Russia, Cuba, China, Pakistan, and Saudi Arabia.
