Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe has ordered the country's Commissioner General of police to arrest all members of the Olympic team of Zimbabwe immediately upon their arrival at Harare Airport.
According to the News of Africa, Zimbabwe has become one of the countries that the Olympic Games in Rio remained without medals. Of the 31 members of the team took eighth place one.
"We have spent public money on these rats who call themselves athletes. If you are not ready to sacrifice themselves and win even the 4th and 5th places, like our neighbors Botswana, why are you going to spend our money, "- said Mugabe.
He also said that if "we needed people who simply sing the national anthem and raise the flag, then Brazil would send beautiful girls and boys from the University of Zimbabwe".
