I predict this will cause a lot of backed up and overflowed toilets at the same time.

Hah...that comment made me look up the population of Harare, Zimbabwe...

1.6 million people live there...

Since this country was a British Colony.. I'm sure there was (or was)a decent sewer infrastructure...

Million toilets flushing at once...what can go wrong ?

Hopefully we will be doing the same thing on Nov 6 using voting booths instead of toilets.

Zimbabwe - it’s not the sewer system that needs a good flushing.

South Africa will continue helping Zimbabwe in its economic recovery programmes, the finance ministers of the two countries say. "South Africa further committed itself to continue supporting Zimbabwe's efforts to normalise its relations with multilateral financial institutions," the ministers said in a joint statement. The statement followed a meeting in Pretoria between South African Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan and his Zimbabwean counterpart Tendai Biti, aimed at deepening co-operation between the two governments. The discussions in the meeting were centred on the resolutions of the extraordinary summit of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) heads of states held in Swaziland in 2009. The resolutions were to provide support to Zimbabwe's Short Term Economic Recovery Programme (Sterp). At that summit, South Africa pledged to help Zimbabwe through budget support grants, a line of credit and export credit facilities. -- SA committed to helping Zimbabwe: finance ministers

If the sewer system is like everything else there, it has only been negelcted since the days of Rhodesia. They’re going to blow manhole covers sky high with $hit geysers is what is going to happen. Well, they will where the manhole covers haven’t been stolen and sold for scrap.
