Photo of the day: back in the day

Filed under: News |

From left to right: Sam Nujoma of Namibia, KK of Zambia, Samora Machel of Mozambique, Julius Nyerere of Tanzania and the winner is Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe, the last man standing. In fact, chances are that, he will win the next elections in Zimbabwe. We just wonder who was designing the almost similar suits these ‘boys’ were putting on?presidents

  2. That’s why children of today don’t grow old because of lucking respect for elders. remember you people that only God can judge someone not even you.

    If you have personal grudge against someone never should you insult him/her. This is a response to all those whos comments are full of insults.

  6. 50 years after independence and we are even in worst situation. Look! Don’t waste your time talking politics when others are enjoying their lives with money without politics. See how this Zambian poor woman became a millionaire just by buying and selling accidented cars, Very interesting idea. Go to (accidented cars.com) to see the various methods and companies that she was using , (accidented cars.com). A very simple idea.

  7. All these leaders either dead,or retired but mugabe honestly it beats my mind why he is hanging on and even looking youngish. Wonders shall never seize so to say.

  9. come on guy, when a kariba dam was being made, the Tongas from lower Zambezi were affected & todate, they are suffering. U know why, so that the millions Zambian can enjoy the luxury of electrified homes. Whatever the wrong KK did, while he could not have please everyone, those u who call the man idiot today, yourselves or your parent were educated by the same man & that is why u are able to speak your thoughtless stupidity out. KK is more hero in Africa than any other leader.

  13. Where is Mugabe’s flesh gone? He was fat and bulky then. Anyway, he looks a troubled man nowadays. I wonder what motivates him to cling on to power. Probably he made a vow… ‘i Bob, do hereby swear that i shall hold on to power till death do us part, so help me God’. You have millions zimbabweans across SA today for economic reasons not to mention those that we see on our streets selling different merchandise to earn a living.

  15. Nujoma = Railway worker UNAM has branches in al provinces of Nambia]
    Kaunda = failed Form 2 and ended up a school teacher [only built UNZA and ZIT];
    Machel = A male nurse [only had the delapidated Eduardo Mondlane University in Maputo]
    Nyerere = MA Edinburgh University [left only University of Dar es Salaam]
    Mugabe = 7 degrees (from Fort Hare, UNISA, etc); three of them at Masters level [ No wonder Zimbabwe has more than 14 universities (real ones not Palabana) and four are being built this year (2013]

  21. To those who are still alive, let them turn their heads and look back. The first and obvious thing they will see in Africa is High levels of “Poverty and Educated Illiterates”. The core purpose of live is “Service” to the benefit of others. Let them asked themselves if they did meet that demand when “Time and Chance” was in their God given hands.
