Zim nonsense denying me happiness: Biti

2012-08-03 11:29

Cape Town - Zimbabwean Finance Minister Tendai Biti has expressed worry over the constant visits to his office by war veterans and civil servants demanding money, saying the development has given him sleepless nights and left him wasted.

He said a variety of Zimbabwean "nonsense" had "impinged" on his right "in pursuit of happiness", according to Radio VOP.

Biti, who upon his appointment as minister in 2009 described his job as the "worst in the world", told a civic society constitutional briefing that he had lost touch with life.

"Zimbabwe is the lowest on the happiness index, some of us, you can look at me, I have lost weight because every day I have war veterans, civil servants and Robert Mugabe and all kinds of nonsense that impinge on my right in pursuit of happiness," said Biti in a jocular manner to much laughter from his audience.

According to the report, Biti who appeared at the meeting in black faded jeans, a red and black sweater and his trade mark Scottish cap appeared to have indeed lost a significant amount of weight.

"I used to play golf, I used to support Black Rhinos [Zimbabwean soccer team], I don't know how all that ended. I don't know the last time I have ever been to a nightclub. My right to pursue happiness has really been infringed. I used to phone girls but all that is gone and I don't think it's fair."

    Why don't you just have a little pity party! You only got Mugabe to thank for all your troubles.

    Come to SA bud - Here you will get a Minister Post (No qualifications necessary) a couple of kif BMW's 740i, Blue light Brigade nogal, a House in Dainfern and Constantia in the Cape, get to go Clubbing, lash as many chicks as you want...better yet marry them all and have dozens of kids...not to worry anymore, we will pay for all of this. And the best part - in your Minister Post anything you do wrong will either go unoticed or you will get another post to do absolutely 'Nothing'

    That's strange, Uncle Bob tells us Zimbabwe is a complete success story and an example of excellent Black governance, as do many Black S/Africans. You mean someone has been lying?

      geraldsebanda - 2012-08-03 13:58

      Dear teboh, did someone burn your textbooks?

      gary.williams.7186896 - 2012-08-03 14:07

      Hey Teboh - If it wasnt for europeans you would still be living in a tree, so shut up now and go tidy your shack 'Your African Govt' has given you...where you will carry on living in forever....! Idiot!

      BigChiefPlumbPudding - 2012-08-03 14:32

      You're still here teboh, my little terrorist? Yes, I agree Africa is for Africans, and I am an African, so Africa is for me. You last said you can't 'cohabit' with us Aryan Africans, so I was wondering why you're still here. You really would be far happier by the sound of it in Zimbabwe.

    Hey Mr BITI. You look healthy enough and have obviously lived off the 'fat of the land' for years..... If you can't sleep at night, imagine how many Zimbabweans can't sleep either because of lack of food, lack of blankets, lack of accomodation, lack of basic commodities... You should consider yourself very 'lucky' - until your time and Zimbabwe Government time runs out, which hopefully will be soon...

      teboh.rapheal - 2012-08-11 13:05

      BIGCHIEF. my little canibalistic decerndant of aryan demons.when did we start shearing the same ancestors?i will repeat what i lastly said.no people can ever cohabit with aryans.the last 700 years prove this beyound doubt.i wonder when indo aryan red TAHMOU people from the sea became africans?by the way this technic of evangelizing natives to make them docile .manipulating thier conscience to accept you is well known.after this you proceed to erace them.just like you did in new zealand;australia;america;canada.history is the best way to analyse the distructive phsychology of many indo aryans.although i must admit some of them have been very honest through all this MAAFA YEARS.in 1 million you might find two highest.the rest are children brainwashed from generations to worship GOD dollar massacring people worldwide.a good indian is a death indian .

    Sadly, millions of Zimbabweans have been forced to flee their country due to the general unhappiness and misery caused by Bob Mugabe. Thousands living in the UK too. Come on SA - do we really want to go down the same road as Zim?

      teboh.rapheal - 2012-08-11 13:08

      GARY do you know the meaning of TAHMOU?IT MEANS THE MOST ECIEN NOMADS ON EARTH.this is how you people are called in encien african languages.this alone speaks for itselfs.savage unpardonable individuals.

    Honourable Biti, Now you running Government not a Private Firm!!! You Blamed others when you were outside Government in the Oppostion!! Now Here you are!! Biti you have a Big Mouth and an empty Vessell.... To turn the economy around takes more than one Minister's life span in Office!!

    they wanted the ministry of finance, Biti and the MDC have been personalising all the state's money that goes into their hands, only to be used in situations whereby the MDC would get appraisal from the nation. Tobacco and maize export money. diamond miners went illegal coz they knew that in having to sell the stone as a state, Biti would lock it in and say 'there is no money' just like he did to sabotage the state funded scholarships. what for? to shame the Zanu Pf? the civil servants and war veterans know that he has the money. just play the good minister's role and all will be fine. to add on, Biti studied Law at University Law, what is he doing in the ministry of finance?????????? face it Biti, you chose to lead something you know nothing about
