March 17, 2014 – “Nigeria Is A Corrupt Country” – Zimbabwe’s President Mugabe
Africa’s most controversial President and the Head of States of 170th most corrupt country in the world has taken a swipe at Nigeria by calling Naija and her citizens corrupt people.
He said this during his 90th birthday party. Mugabe said Zimbabweans are now almost behaving like Nigerians who have to be corruptly pay for every service.
In his own words:
“Are we now like Nigeria where you have to reach your pocket to get anything done,” he said.
“You see, we used to go to Nigeria and every time we went there we had to carry extra cash in our pockets to corruptly pay for everything. You get into a plane in Nigeria and you sit there and the crew keeps dilly dallying without taking off as they wait for you to pay them to fly the plane,” said the president followed by a huge laugh from the delegates attending his birthday bash.
In a recent world’s corruption index, Mugabe’s country ranked worse than Nigeria.
On the list, Zimbabwe was placed on 170th position from the bottom while Nigeria ranked 163.
This is a clear case of kettle calling the pot black.
