Zimbabwe Has Most Millionaires & Billionaires
World Press - Zimbabwe officially has more millionaires than any other country in the world. In fact, over 90% of the population is a millionaire. And 35 people out of the Forbes Top 100 Billionaires List are Zimbabweans.

Zowie Zulu, a resident of the capital Harare, gave an interview to Forbes magazine, which was interpreted in English: "I couldn't believe it - I'm just a simple carpenter earning ZA$108 million a week. I've been saving up for one and a half years. This guy from some magazine in America approaches me telling me I'm on the Billionaires list with Oprah Winfrey and Bill Gates! I couldn't believe it."

Disappointingly, Zulu was unable to afford the ZA$3 trillion plane fare to the US to collect his "Brightest and Best Billionaires of 2009" Award. "I'm a couple of trillion short of the fare" said Zulu "but my wife worked out that if I save up for just another 37 years I'll be able to afford the ticket. That depends on inflation - of course!"

Zimbabwe's inflation is currently running at 231 million % with an average increase of 100% every time you blink , which means in just a few days the country will become the first to host a Trillionaire.

President Mugabe expressed his pride towards his people "I knew if I just kept up with my good work it would all turn out for the best!" He said smiling "In just 29 years of my rule I have turned Zimbabwe into the richest and most prosperous nation in the world - and the statistics quite clearly prove that!"
