The scene shows a huge bulldozer being driven by Robert Mugabe, President of Zimbabwe; it is crashing over a pile of rubble that includes shoes, pots and pans and chairs. Refers to Mugabe's ordering the demolition by police of the shacks and kiosks of thousands of the urban poor. Critics say it is an attempt to scapegoat street traders because of the increasing economic chaos in Zimbabwe. The words in the cartoon demonstrate the degree to which Mugabe has lost touch with reality.
