A Deal in Zimbabwe At Last!

Friends in Zimbabwe report that, even after two revaluations that have knocked a total of 13 zeros off the Zimbabwe dollar, it was trading on the black market earlier today at around 6,000 to the USD – or 60,000,000,000,000,000 to one in terms of the original Zimbabwe dollar at independence.

The good news is that, according to published reports from Harare, there is now a power sharing deal between Zanu PF (Mugabe) and MDC (Tsvangirai) which will be announced on Monday. Let’s hope it is meaningful – the current arrangements and power mad Mugabe is killing people.
