President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe has instructed the Commissioner General of Zimbabwe Police Republic, Augustine Chihuri, to arrest and detain the entire Olympic team members who represented the country at the just concluded Rio Olympics over dismal performance.
An incensed Mugabe referred to members of the team as “rats.”
Zimbabwe, which is one of the countries in the Olympics without a medal, presented a team of 31 athletes at the Games.
The closest any of the athletes came to win a contest was at the 8th position.
Mugabe who is angered by the team’s performance told the Police Chief to arrest all the team members and detain them.
“We have wasted the country’s money on these rats we call athletes.
“If you are not ready to sacrifice and win even copper or brass medals (referring the 4th and 5th positions) as our neighbours Botswana did, then why do you go to waste our money?
“If we needed people to just go to Brazil to sing our national anthem and hoist our flag, we would have sent some of the beautiful girls and handsome guys from University of Zimbabwe to represent us,” Mugabe lashed at the team.
He added that the money invested in the team to represent the country could have been used to provide amenities and build schools.
“This situation is like an impotent man who is married to five women, what is the essence?
“I will make sure we share the cost across board for all of them to pay back to government chest even if it takes 10 years recoup; now it turns out to be a soft loan we have given them to go and visit Brazil as tourists; they are useless!” he concluded.
