Zimbabwe’s perennial madman, Robert Mugabe, has urged his people to stop shaking hands in an attempt to halt the spread of cholera. This isn’t a joke. And it gets much worse. Harare (Zimbabwe’s capital) is offering free graves as the outbreak of cholera reaches epidemic proportions. There are also reports of anthrax killing three people and threatening livestock.

I know it is far from simple, but what more has to happen before something gets done? Cholera is a highly treatable disease, and should not result in death. Mugabe blames Western sanctions for the outbreak. Clean water and basic medical provisions would kick cholera’s arse.

Here I am sitting in my parents home, unemployed. I have a roof over my head, electricity and clean water. It’s way too easy. And it’s fucked. I wish I could save the world.
