Grace Mugabe, 43, known as the First Shopper of Zimbabwe, flew into a rage when she was spotted last week leaving the exclusive Shangri-La hotel in Hong Kong. She has been staying there with her entourage at a cost of £2,000 a day while her country endures poverty, hunger and disease.

    Three of our staff have lived in the USA at various times: Cliverton, Marcus and Shona. Marcus and Shona have relatives in the USA as do many Bajan families.

    It will be interesting to see if she is charged. The Chinese have billions invested in Zimbabwe. What do you think?

  5. If there was ever a case for regime change Mugabe is it, I bet if they struck oil in Zimbabwe a league of friendly western nations would topple him overnight.
