Just For Shan...a nice Halbadiri

A Tanzanian member of parliament has threatened to place a death curse on all ministers if the government does not do more to fight corruption.

Can I just say that I wish I had the title "Minister of State for Good Governance"? We need one of those here.

yeah... saw that this morning. Sounds pretty scary, huh? The thing is, over there a lot of people will be really worried about it. Many of the tribes are very spiritual and believe in death curses, etc. I wonder if his threat will have any effect? Sounds weird and barbaric over here.

What the heck is a halbadiri?

It's a good thing death curses are not effective, or I think there'd be a lot more dead members of Congress. :-) Don't know how Canadians feel about their lawmakers. (MPs, right?)
