Zimbabweans must be the most laidback – dodo laidback – people on Earth!

Zimbabweans must be one of the most laid-back people on earth.
The Zimbabwe economy shrunk by a staggering world record of 84% in the six year period 2002 to 2008 alone throwing millions out of work and into a live of abject poverty. Zimbabweans have seen their life expectancy plummet from 68 years when Mugabe took over in 1980 to 34 years by 2004, the last time it was measured. And throughout all these trials and tribulations have done very little to stop the madness behind it all. To the people of Zimbabwe it was water off a duck’s back. Instead of water rolling off well-oiled duck’s feathers Zimbabweans had the corruption, looting and brutal oppression, concentrated sulphuric acid which burns the skin, flesh and bone. Other than groan in pain and bury their dead Zimbabweans have staidly done nothing else.
Zimbabweans have had a chance to define what kind of Police service they wanted, for example. After 33 years of a Police service that has turned a blind eye to politically motivated violence and thus contribute to the nation’s culture of mindless violence; there was one thing one expected that Zimbabweans would want to see changed. The MDC, the party one expected to be more in tune with the nation’s needs, has done nothing on the matter although they have had the parliamentary majority these last four years. The people themselves have clearly not paid much attention on the subject either.
Yes, Zimbabweans must rank amongst the most laid-back people; or am I confusing laidback with being stupid – the dodo kind of stupidity!
