Are you sure that Zimbabwean English has diverged from elsewhere? Might it not have always been quite different? Different African languages, more British settlement, not sure why one would expect them to have ever been similar.

I'm not entirely sure I want to know all of this. On the one hand, it sounds like a great adventure (which are much less fun to live through than to tell about). But on the other hand, my foremost interest is to have you back safe and sound. So I'm hoping your next four days are less interesting reading. Why yes, I'm totally selfish. :-)

It might indeed always have been different. On the other hand, Ugandan and Kenyan English accents sound pretty similar to me, despite different tribes and different histories. So, don't know.
