African statesman, potential Nobel Peace Prize winner, despot and murderer Robert Mugabe was today initiated into the International Anagram Hall of Fame.

At a glittering ceremony held in a tent, with makeshift gallows for MDC supporters on the site of the Killing Fields of Cambodia, Mr Mugabe received a fat cheque, although he didn't realise it wasn't Robert Maxwell until he got home.

The winning anagram of "Robert Mugabe" was, by a long shot, "Argue term Bob", which gained 37% of the vote, or 89% in Zimbabwean terms. "Brute rage mob" was second with 32% of the vote, or 92% in Zimbabwean terms, while "Brute embargo" was a very close third, gaining 31% of the vote, or 107% in Zimbabwean terms.

It was a very hard-fought contest, seeing Mr Mugabe and his supporters fight off tough opposition, more so because their baseball bats and sticks had been confiscated by bigger thugs than his at the airport.

One of Mr MugBaby's supporters, 17-year old Ronnie Crayfish, a war veteran from 20 years ago, said.

"The Western free press, just because they are uncensored, cannot print slurs about our glorious leader Robert Mugabe. He has won this election fair and square. The best anagram Morgan Tsvangirai can do is "Virgin to Anagrams" or "Stir ravaging moan", although "A vagina storm ring" needs banning. Just like we have done with the MDC.

"Now, I have some non-aligned voters to speak to and beat up. So goodbye."
