Zimbabwe: My first ever bribe

Hope's first ever bribe in Zimbabwe: “I bribed a government official yesterday – my first ever bribe. The Zimbabweans reading this post may now shut their mouths and massage their bruised chins from where they hit the floor. I know that everyone does it but this really was my first ever bribe, and not because I am prudish about it.”
