Comedy with a little distortion of history

Zimbabweans have a knack for laughing at themselves even when things are not going well and they should be moaning and groaning, according to a story by South Africa’s News 24.  One comedian is quoted as saying that Zimbabwe is the only country that will fail the simply test: Who is your former president?  "Zimbabweans, for all our literacy – with a 99.9995% literacy rate – we are the only country that will fail to answer a simple question: who is your former president?" he is quoted as saying in an apparent reference to President Robert Mugabe’s 35-year rule.
