Robert Mugabe has found ground glass in his food but seems fairly relaxed about the incident. This is not the work of "Western imperialist agents", he says; they would be far more thorough. Instead he suspects the cook, whom he seems to think he can deal with more easily.

Its also been confirmed that "chest pains" prevented Mugabe from attending a funeral. This is the first time that Mugabe's rumoured health problems have been confirmed. To paraphrase what Andrew said the first time that these stories arose -- dare we hope that health problems will soon force him to step down? Although Mugabe promises to be "boxing" for years yet, my impression is that these incidents are becoming increasingly frequent.
