Gado in the Daily Nation of Nairobi (Kenya) on Zimbabwe President of 86 years: “Say it louder: Happy birthday Mr. President…”

Arcadio of Costa Rica on Hugo Chavez (President of Venezuela): “Queen of England! Empires are over.  Return the Island of Malouines to Argentina”.  England is extracting oil on the shores of the Malouines.

Andy of South Africa on Recep Tayip Erdogan (PM of Turkey): “Arabs and Turks are fingers of one hand. Without the Arabs the world has no sense.”

Stavro of Lebanon on Muammar Qadhafi of Libya: “I demand the dissolution of Switzerland.  The Italian speaking part is to be handed over to Italy; the German parts to Germany, and the French region to France.”  The son of Qadhafi, Hannibal, was arrested in Switzerland.

Cajas of Equator on Felipe Calderon (President of Mexico): ” It is like your neighbor is the biggest drug addict in the planet”  reprimanding the US for not cracking down more seriously on US drug addicts.

From Lisbon on Antonio Gutierrez (UN commissioner on refugees): ” You lock the door a window is opened. You lock a window an underground tunnel is dug-open.”

Bado of Ottawa (Canada) on Fidel Castro: “The Cuban model is not working; it is not working even in Cuba.”

Gado of Kenya on Nelson Mandela: “I had serious trouble in prison with the outside false image that I was a saint.”

Koukso of Russia on Mikhail Khodorvski (Tax evader of Russia ex-Chairman of the giant oil producer Loukoil): “Naturally I don’t like being in prison: I am ready in the name of my convictions.”

Taylor Jones of the USA on Jacob Zuma (President of South Africa) visiting Cuba: “It is a wonderful mix that should be inspiring and which distinguishes Cuba community from the rest of the world.”

Kroll of Belgium on the monarch saying: “Ivory Coast, that’s a country.  For every election they celebrate two Presidents.  Belgium was unable to form a government in six months.”

Boligan of Mexico on Haiti, showing a giant statue in a state of crumbling.  The last earthquate killed 250,000 and the cholera epidemic killed 2,500.  The news media forget Haiti except for major cataclysms.  Who are remaining NGO?  Who is still supporting the people in Haiti?
