And So Bill Gates Is In Zimbabwe

Microsoft founder Bill Gates is on holiday in Zimbabwe with his family at the moment.

He is said to have arrived in the country last week on a six-day private visit, according to the weekly government rag, The Sunday Mail. So much for the world calling Zimbabwe one of the most dangerous places huh.

Gates is said to be staying at the exclusive Singita Pamushana Lodge where you would have to pay something like US$5 785 per night for the kind of accommodation Gates requires for this trip.

Gates and his wife Melinda have interests in Zimbabwe. They recently contributed, through their foundation, $5 million for developmental projects. Gates also invested in the country’s sewage system this year with the aim of turning raw sewage into energy. That is assuming the City Council gets water to your house and you are able to flush properly.

He is one of the richest men in the world – like we needed to tell you that – and plans to give away most of his personal wealth in the next couple of years.

Well, he is in Zimbabwe and we are pretty sure someone tried to sell him a dream. You know how we do.
