    While Zimbabwe's economy is in freefall, with superhyperinflation and a workers strike.....

    Mugabe throws a $ 500,000 birthday bash, complete with Johny blue label ( $70 200 ml, $ 170 750 ml, King George V Edition 750ml $ 500) caviar, lobster and Chivas Regal!

    Oh, yeah, and to complete that Jamaica-Zimbabwe legacy (Remember Bob sang at independence?) he flew in none other than the controversial Sizzla Kalonji, a statement against the west in itself.

    While Zimbabweans are starving!

    Mugabe throws lavish birthday bash


    [​IMG]

    HARARE, Zimbabwe, Feb. 26 (UPI) -- Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe celebrated his 86th birthday Friday with a nearly $500,000 birthday party broadcast live on state television.

    The 12-hour fete featured Jamaican reggae singer Sizzla Kalonji, who was flown to the economically destitute country for the occasion, The Daily Telegraph said

    Guests dined on lobster, prawns and caviar, and sipped Johnnie Walker Blue Label and Chivas Regal Scotch whiskeys.

    Mugabe's actual birthday was Sunday.

    Many in the rival Movement for Democratic Change party called the celebration tasteless considering the country suffers acute poverty, the British newspaper said.

    Tendai Biti, MDC finance minister under the country's shared governance system, refused to allocate public funds for the party, officials said, so funds were raised from private sources and countries aligned with Mugabe's ZanuPF party.

    BRAVO Tendai Biti kwa kukataa kutoa fweza za walipa kodi.

    BTW angalia pale alipokaa kibabu hawezi hata kushika kitambaa cha kutolea kamasi LOL. Achia ngazi I&*di&^ot!

    Ndiyo Viongozi kama hawa ambao ni adui wa kwanza wa nchi nyingi za Kiafrika. Aliingia madarakani 1980 nchi ikiwa na uchumi mzuri sana kang'ang'ania madarakani miaka 30 na kuifilisi nchi hiyo vibaya sana.

    China said on Monday its embassy in Zimbabwe had thrown a birthday party for President Robert Mugabe, a rare sign of foreign support for a leader reviled by many Zimbabweans and criticised by the United States and Europe
    Mugabe celebrated his 86th birthday on Sunday and made time to attend a party held in his honour at the Chinese embassy in Harare, China's Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

    Hailed as a saviour by fanatical supporters and praised throughout Africa for standing up to what many see as bullying by the West, Mugabe is hated in equal measure by opponents who accuse him of being a dictator.

    Mugabe "thanked the Chinese embassy for its painstaking preparations for the birthday celebration and ... hoped to further expand friendly cooperative relations in every field between the two nations", the Foreign Ministry said.

    The ministry's website showed pictures of Mugabe cutting a birthday cake in front of a large sign wishing him "Happy 86th birthday" and addressing almost 100 guests.

    It quoted Zimbabwean Foreign Minister Simbarashe Mumbengegwi as saying it was the first time Mugabe had visited a foreign embassy in the country since independence in 1980.

    "This proves the special friendly relations between the two countries," the statement paraphrased the minister as saying

    Ni moja wa viongozi wenye roho ngumu kama chuma cha pua. Yeye yupo tayari kutoa uhai wake sio kwa ajili ya faida ya wananchi wake ila ni kwa ajili ya masilahi yake na jamaa zake.

    "Happy Birthday Mr President".

    ZIMBABWEAN President Robert Mugabe's nephew, the flamboyant businessman and parliamentarian Phillip Chiyangwa is owner of arguably the largest and most expensive residential property after State House.

    Variously described as extravagant, opulent, palatial, magnificent, Chiyangwa's palace is a showpiece. Its owner built it in his own image -- controversial but flamboyant.

    Chiyangwa recently allowed a Zimbabwean online property magazine, ExpoProperties into his mansion…and they spent half a day navigating through the myriad lounges and bedrooms that are furnished with exquisite items from round the globe.

    Chiyangwa, the MP for Chinhoyi, has a mansion with 15 carports, 18 bedrooms, 25 lounges, 4 balconies, 9 servant quarters, 2 swimming pools and 3 heliports.

    Imposing in outlook the house stands majestically on a 3 acre plot. The garden is well manicured with not a single blade of lawn out of place. Waterfalls cascade down rugged rock features while a fountain spouts white water as you drive into the paved driveway where you are immediately greeted with a staggering choice of 15 parking lots.

    The tranquil surroundings are watered by pop up sprinklers (supplied by 2 boreholes), hosting innumerable varieties of plants and fish. The carport only has a BMW 745i and Mercedes Benz SL55 AMG V8 Kompressor parked. This is by no means the whole fleet of Chiyangwa's luxury cars.

    The customised kitchen in stunning black and white contrast is spacious and well appointed. Designed and constructed under the watchful eye of Chiyangwa's wife, the gadget savvy and chic kitchen boasts a dining area, separate washing area and pantry.

    With enough granite to satisfy Fred & Wilma Flintstone and gadgetry to make Inspector Gadget look amateurish, the kitchen is truly a marvel. It is natural venue for the family's breakfasts and the origin of the culinary masterpieces that have been served to distinguished visitors.

    Describing the maze-like lounges is a challenging task. From contemporary lime ensemble to tranquil earth colours and comfortable leather the lounges are a designer's dream. A proliferation of rugs in a riot of colours characterises the lounges.

    With a who's who of the world's top brands the lounges represent a meeting of futuristic apparatus. TV's flatter than a ‘20 bearer', DVD players, stereos that look like a device from Star Trek and CD's and DVD's with total running time longer than Le Tour de France

    The formal lounge is characterised by twin staircases crafted in teak, brilliant chandeliers and sophisticated, contemporary furnishings. The effect is completed by the well stocked bar with the finest whiskies, wines and liqueurs….an entertainer's utopia.

    Tiling is in the finest Spanish tiles. ExpoProperties say they counted 25 different varieties of ceramic tiles and twelve varieties of carpets deep enough to swim in.
    The master bedroom has Italian furnishings. It is a suite comprising lounge, bar, bedroom, bathroom/toilet, dressing area and balcony.

    The cosy bar is styled in retro stainless steel and black. Chiyangwa also opened up his amiable legendary wardrobe of suits and shoes housed in a spacious dressing area finished in classical light oak and frosted glass. His selection of suits, shirts and shoes can make American rapper and fashion mogul P Diddy's green with envy. Classically designed, the bathroom with the inevitable Jacuzzi, is tiled in black with a shower tucked neatly in one corner.

    Other features include an office with a reception area clothed in sober navy. The customised workstation complete with state of the art PC is ideal for the intrepid legislator cum entrepreneur's hectic schedule which often spills into awkward hours. The office suite links with the bedroom via an elegant staircase finished in saligna. Adjoining the office is pool table for the relaxation of the busy legislator.

    Other recreational areas are housed away from the house. A stand alone sauna with a capacity of 20 and shower facilities is housed in the gazebo complex overlooking the office suite.A spa bath sits on top of the gazebo. From the spa bath one commands a view of the outdoor pool and an all weather tennis court to complete the recreational area.

    Truly a fitting home for the man known for his largesse, Chiyangwa then regaled his visitors with accounts of the distinguished visitors who have graced the home.
    Built for enjoyment, this house is simply in a league of its own.

    BULAWAYO, Zimbabwe — Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe's supporters say they spent $300,000 to celebrate his 86th birthday in this impoverished country.
    Delma Lupepe, a leading member of Mugabe's party, said Saturday he helped raise the money from donors.
    The Chinese Embassy gave a cake the size of a large TV, which Mugabe's wife Grace helped cut Saturday in the southern city of Bulawayo.
    Lupepe says: "We have to celebrate our leader, who's now 86. How many people reach that age?"
    The U.N. says the average life expectancy is about 44 in Zimbabwe, which is beset by hunger and AIDS.
    Some 25,000 Mugabe supporters were invited to celebrations a week after his birthday. A concert on Friday night was followed by a meal of beef, chicken and rice on Saturday.
