Thankfully- Some Zimbabweans Are Managing Just Fine

While her husband was making a scene at the UN global food summit, Mrs. Robert Mugabe was able to get out and enjoy herself in Rome.
This is London reported:

Her husband’s presence at a UN summit of food has sparked an international outcry, but that hasn’t diverted Grace Mugabe from indulging in her favourite pastime – shopping for shoes.

The 44-year-old was whisked away from the luxury hotel where she, her husband and his entourage are staying to splash out on luxury footwear.

Mrs Mugabe has to make the most of her time in Rome, an EU travel ban means she might not be back any time soon.

Mrs. Mugabe only wears Farragamo.

Meanwhile back home in Zimbabwe… The former breadbasket of Africa spirals to hell with an inflation rate running at an estimated 3,700%, an unemployment rate at 80%, and tens of thousands homeless.

Not to mention… The Mugabe regime is arresting the opposition members, banning their rallies and suspending aid groups from operating.
But, some people are managing just fine.
