Zimbabwe is the most highly developed country in Africa - Mugabe

FILE President of Zimbabwe Robert Mugabe

"Our leaders say we are rich, they say we are developed, they say we have resources but the people do not see that, " she said.

When asked about the state of Zimbabwe's economy, he said: "We are not a poor country".

"We have resources, perhaps more resources than the average country in the world, gold, diamonds, chrome, coal, et cetera".

Twitter responded to his remarks in customary Twitter style: memes.

Bekele in a hurry for London glory
Radcliffe still holds the overall women's record of 2:15.25, which she set in a mixed gender race at the London Marathon in 2003. From there I said to my coach: "I am ready to win the London Marathon ", Wanjiru said after the victory.

Our GDP per capita is the lowest in Southern Africa. I think that is completely wrong because there are elements of fragility everywhere."When we talking about fragility we think about countries, in fact, the spinover effects of fragility in one area can outgrow consequences". Reports by the statistical service show that 48 percent of the population is educated with over 40 percent of graduates unemployed or under-employed.

Bills add picks and character in selecting LSU DB White
The Bills got an extra first-round pick in next year's draft for making the big move down to the bottom of this year's first day. If Tre'Davious White ran under a 4.40 at the Combine, he would have ranked way higher on team's draft boards.

"Roads are killing innocent citizens daily, hospitals are death traps without medication, we do not even have our own currency and the recently introduced bond notes have failed dismally to curb the cash crisis".
