With a line-up that includes Drew Barrymore, David Beckham, Orlando Bloom, and Ricky Martin, the UN's choice of ambassadors has been known to cause raised eyebrows or the odd smirk.
Seldom, however, has there been such anger, or questioning of the organisation's credibility, as that greeting the appointment of a new international envoy for tourism: Robert Mugabe.
Improbable as it seems, the Zimbabwean president, who is widely accused of ethnic cleansing, rigging elections, terrorising opposition, controlling media and presiding over a collapsed economy, has been endorsed as a champion of efforts to boost global holidaymaking.

That’s like putting Idi Amin in charge of the U.N. Food Drive.
This is like me giving marital advice.
Idi loved liver and onions!
“Robert Mugabe asked to be new UN envoy for tourism”
I literally laughed out loud at this one!
The ideal guy to see that there’s enough golf courses for Obama.
Another instance of truth being stranger than fiction.
This is certainly good news for tourism.
I’m more than mildly surprised that the American President Barack Hussein Obama didn’t create an office for tourism and offer that to Mugabee.
Mugabee, of course, is the president of that progressive African nation, Zimbabwe. (Or is it Zimbabyou, or Zimbabme?) At any rate he’d do tourism a big favor in his nation if he’d exile himself and all his cronies out of Zimbabyou and rename it Rhodesia.
When we throw Obama out of the WH, he will become a prime candidate for Secy General of the UN..Just watch. He has all the qualifications..
I wouldn't go that far. This is the UN we're talking about.
Look on the bright side. They appointed Muammar Gaddafi to the U.N. Human Rights Council a couple of years ago, and look what happened to him.
The first tour will be to the graveyards of his political opponents.
UN Envoy for Tourism...
This is some of the crap US Taxpayer dollars are going to at the UN? How many US families get by week to week? Job to job?
At this point, I really wouldn’t be surprised if Pres. Urkel appoints a Tourism Czar.
Mugabe says: spend your money on tourism now before I add too many zeros to the new bills I'm printing and make yours worthless.
Mugabe says: vacation memories can't be taken from you just because of your race, unlike your money, your farm or your very life.
will there be a package deal including hut, to see obama’s kenyan birthplace.
He’ll have to go back to saying he was born in Kenya all along to do that.
You can’t make this stuff up!
Those planning to visit Zimbabwe might want to take a full supply of MREs. Since Bobby M. has redistributed the farms FROM folks who actually KNEW how to farm to those without a clue, food is in short supply.
Idi could have arragned that. You would just have to tell him whose liver!!
Tourism? I thought Mugabe’s expertise was in Economics and Agricultural Development.
A sick joke!!
“You would just have to tell him whose liver!!”
That was the story about his dining habits.
US out of the UN
UN out of the US
Hi I am Robert Mugabe, I have in my hand an AK-47, so VISIT my CORRUPT COUNTRY of Zimbabwe. If you don't, I'll shoot you.
If you visit my country, you'll see what 4 more years of Obama can do to yours. Visit Zimbabwe, I DEMAND you...
