Africa: Africa's old men

Africa's old men: “I haven’t checked the maths but here’s something interesting sent in to us from a subscriber: Robert Mugabe (Zimbabwe) age 86, Hosni Mubarak (Egypt) age 82, Hifikepunye Pohamba (Namibia) age 74, Rupiah Banda (Zambia) age 73, Mwai Kibaki (Kenya) age 71…”

  • What about Colonel Qaddafi? Hohohohoho…! He reigned at ’69 for all I remember , in the so called fate7 of November revolution. I wouldn’t really give a damn and search for that ******* . But I gotta say : It ain’t no phenomenon ,the african people are the ones we should write upon. They are very much noteworthy! They’d allowdictators to reign uneventfully, and then abstain from mournining upon their stinking dead bodies…YUK.
