image for Robert Mugabe annoyed at unfair power sharing
A Robert Mugbaby baby-mugger

Robert Mugbaby, president and dictator of Basketcaseland, formerly Zimbabwe, who acceded to world pressure and announced the dividing up of government posts on a fair and equal 50-50 basis between his Zanu-PF party and Morgan Tsvangirai's MDC opposition, has today complained that the result has not been fair at all.

While Mr Mugbaby's party maintains control of relatively innocuous and what he feels are silly and unnecessary ministries such as defence, finance, home, foreign affairs, justice, and beating up the opposition, he says that Mr Tsvangirai will be in charge of too many vital ministries such as fishing, natural gas, sun-bathing, champagne, shopping, satellite navigation, beaches and poverty. Mr Mugbaby feels that that this is just unfair.

Mr Mugbaby claims that he didn't spend all these years stealing from the country and its people, beating them and even murdering them, as well as all that effort he put into ruining the economy and raising inflation to record-breaking levels, just to pamper some softie who wants to better the country, provide food for its people and help the people actually stay alive.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
