Rather busy, hence I thought I would refrain from posting, but there was this remarkable thing that happened today (people here are still full of surprises, although we should know better by now).
Today the school's principal, who is of course the Leader's daughter with a PhD in Economics, summoned Jod to her office because she made a comment in the staff room that displeased some. She told Jod that she does not know the history of the Outpost (that's the old argument / invective: "you are not familiar with Outpost realities", see also this) and that she should say nothing and express no opinions whatsoever on such matters (yes, Jod's comment was political: boooo, scary). She added that Jod has been here for just a year (well, she has worked in the school for two, but surely the principal has many things on her mind) but has a job — something she should be grateful for, instead of making comments.
Mugabe will be re-elected today, won't he?
