Zimbabwe twins give up their loincloths

Well, I try and post Zimbabwe articles here from time to time, depressing as they can be. This one at least doesn't involve politics. Two brothers started wearing traditional dress (goatskin loincloths) in an attempt to combat 'mental colonialism':

Unfortunately they were arrested for their trouble.
