Robert Mugabe, President of Zimbabwe, may use fear and violence as the crude tools of authority to "rule" his country in crisis, but he obviously doesn't scare everyone. Proof of this can be seen at the Web site of the Zimbabwe Embassy in Washington DC where the guest book is brim-full of anti-Mugabe rhetoric. In fact, there's even one posting from a Mr R Mugabe, which reads: "God is dead. Long live Bob. I'm getting tired of listening to all you black and white peasants arguing out there. Just shut up, get on with your work, and keep my money flowing in. I've got a swimming pool here if you give me any trouble. Remember my brother, brothers? Now keep quiet, and get back to work, cos I've got to count my diamonds. R. Mugabe My Hotel, Switzerland." That was posted at the end of last month - and there haven't been many since. No doubt the embassy's Webmaster is so busy handling enquiries from tourists eager to visit the country he hasn't had time to check the site. Oh dear. ®
