Mock Burial

Cartoon by Tony Grogan
NOTES: Robert = Robert Mugabe, President of Zimbabwe, in office since 1980.
He is the country's first black leader.
He seized almost all white-owned commercial farms leading to the collapse of an agriculture-based economy.
Young people are leaving Zimbabwe in droves, seeking a better life in South Africa.
