  Mugabe spurned SA loan 'in fury over conditions'

September 18, 2005: Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe rejected South Africa's offer of emergency cash to bail out Zimbabwe's collapsing economy and 'humiliated' the officials when they presented him with a draft rescue package, it emerged yesterday.

A senior official in the Zimbabwe government, who prefers to remain anonymous because he has not eaten corn for five months due to shortage, said that Mugabe was apoplectic when he learned about the conditions attached to the loan.

South Africa attached three conditions:
Zimbabwe must relocate the famous Victoria Falls to a rustic spot between Johannesburg and Pretoria.
President Thabo Mbeki wants to display the Khame Ruins on the mantlepiece in his Cape Town office.
Zimbabwe must acknowledge that ZANU-PF stands for 'Zap And Neuter Uneducated Poor Folks'
