SOUTHERN AFRICANS ANNOYED BY "ALL THIS
INTERNATIONAL STUFF" ON INTERNET
Obviaasly Satire : The profusion of international news available on the Internet has made it increasingly difficult for the average Southern African to ignore the rest of the world, a trend researchers say threatens Zimbabwe’s long, proud history of disregarding anything said about them.
"With all the foreign newspapers and multi-cultural sites, the Internet is making it almost impossible for the average Zimbabwean to remain uninformed and apathetic," said Careless Gonezwe from State University, which conducted the survey. "Zimbabweans can still do it. But it now takes effort, whereas before it was as easy as turning off the TV or radio. When they worked”
According to survey participant Bambuli Marangoro, a 22-year-old from Bitmore Province it's not just the excessive amount of international news on the Web that is irritating. "Look, I can get around the news. I just turn off Reuters headlines or e News in Google," he said. "But even some of the search sites are available in African languages now."
Other respondents said they were appalled, not just by the availability of non-Zim news, but by the way important Zim news is reported by some of these foreign sites. The way they slander our magnificent president and his virile South African counterpart is unforgivable. They make jokes about her ladyships’ dairy and milk supply to Nestle but they never compliment her on the running of the farm that we stole and then gave to her.
“We must encourage Bobby to continue taking land from the whites to give to the rich because we enjoy being poor, homeless people. We want our elitist government to become richer so that they can transfer more money into their overseas accounts. I echo my brother in South Africa’s words. We will kill and steal for Bobs and Zooms.
