In South Africa we are blessed to have mini markets at all major intersections: from clothing hangers, to people taking the rubbish from our cars for a bit of money, to the guy holding a board saying he has 12 children to feed but no job.
This past Saturday, after attending the Audi Fashion Week, one such guy held a cardboard with thick black writing.
I try not to read these boards, for it always makes me sad.
Then my eyes unwillingly whizzed though the words:
MY DOG IS ARRESTED FOR PUNCHING ROBERT MUGABE'S CHEST.
(For those that are not familiar with the state Zimbabwe is, thanks to their president, Robert, refer to the link)
I sat still for a semi second and then to my fellow passengers: "Guys read that guys board! It is so funny!"
Hastily I tried to locate my purse, but the robot illuminated green into the car quite suddenly and we were off.
I wanted to give him something... I really did.
In his own way, he is standing up for the people of Zimbabwe, because quite apparently their President is not.
