Too Cheeky to Work in Zimbabwe!

The fusion band Freshlyground, formed in South Africa but made up of members from SA, Mozambique and Zimbabwe have had their Zimbabwean work permits cancelled following this Spitting Image style spoof on Robert Mugabe.

Given recent history, I'd have said that they got off lightly.

They cast a fairly wide net, mind. Better moments are the background cameos: Archbishop Tutu and Nelson Mandela (now retired) play dominos in the background while South African President Jacob Zuma seduces a group of women at a table elsewhere in the pub.
