Zimbabwe president Robert Mugabe has ordered the Rio athletes to be put under arrest as they failed to win any medals! Yes, arrested, incarcerated, held in custody, call it what you will, the punishment seems a little steep!

According to the National Transitional Authority, Mugabe met with the commissioner general of Zimbabwe police republic, Augustine Chihuri, and asked him to arrest and detain the whole Zimbabwean Olympic Team members immediately when they arrive at the Harare International Airport. 

31 athletes represented the country, but none could finish above 8th position.

“We have wasted the country’s money on these rats we call athletes. If you are not ready to sacrifice and win even copper or brass medals (referring the 4th and 5th positions) as our neighbours Botswana did, then why do you go to waste our money” he said.

Clearly this Head of State is not taking the Olympic failure lightly! But he may have jumped the gun this time as far as rational thinking goes.
