Failing to learn from the mistakes of others

The good bit:

"Eleven of the 14 countries that are part of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) will participate in the free trade area".

The stupid bit:

"plans for a common currency by 2018".

Integrating successes like Botswana with basket cases like Zim would make the efforts of the EU look quite unambitious....

Once Mugabe and his bunch of corrupt Marxist clowns get out of the way, Zim could once again take its rightful place as an engine of economic growth in the SADC region. But for the moment I am not keeping my fingers crossed!
