Robert Mugabe is Dead

Uncle Bob, well he was dead and has been resurrected, not once but many times, as Robert Mugabe claims "I have died many times. That's where I have beaten Christ. Christ died once and resurrected once. I am as fit as a fiddle." As Robert Mugabe celebrates his 88th birthday, he leaves in his wake the mess he has made to Zimbabwe, a country just north of us. "We pride ourselves as being top, really, on the African ladder... We feel that we have actually been advancing rather than going backwards". So why am I been so macabre tonight as I write my blog, well Matthew and I just returned from a lovely evening with friends watching Agatha Christie's play The Mousetrap at Pieter Toerien's Montecasino Theatre and Studio. Now in its 60th year, the play The Mousetrap is the longest running performance in the world with over 24,000 performances and still going strong.

So how did Uncle Bob get mixed up in this dirty deed? Well, arriving early at Montecasino, Matthew and I found ourselves at Scoobs, a lovely bookshop. Matthew found a book about 50 ways Doomsday could come and I found the cookbook I want, Heston Blumenthal's Kitchen. Nothing too macabre yet but it was this bust of Robert Mugabe which caught my eye. It was part of the display for Peter Godwin's book, The Fear. It looks interesting as it is about the death of Robert Mugabe and Zimbabwe. Then it was off to watch The Mousetrap and trying to work out who is or who are the murders. So who done it, I can hear you ask, well would you love me to tell you. And the murderer is... ah I forgot, must be my old age catching up to me. Now who went and moved the cheese?
