No offense but absolute rubbish, this is not how you do your own statistics. The rating is simply based off people who are "LITERATE" over the population. When you calculate %, what has the baseline got to do with your calculation? Same way you calculate poverty, wealthy, men/women, unemployment, and whatever benchmark it is, same rule applies. If Zimbabwe were 160million, it will remain be 90% over because the country spends resources on educating their people on reading/writing.

Not at all!, it show the percentage of literacy. Zimbabwe is really Number One in Africa.

Question: why western media such as BBC, CNN, ABC, RFI, etc never mention the high literacy rate in Zimbabwe under Mugabe's regime? Why are they focusing more on land distribution issues?
Re: Zimbabwe Has The Highest Literacy Rate In Africa by 50calibre(m): 12:14am On Jul 20, 2013
Not surprised, Mugabe himself is probably the most educated man in Africa.

if truly, zimbabwe has the highet literacy rate, i would like to ask the following question
1. how man nobel laurets? Field medalist, world professional, innovators etc has zimbabwe produced in the last decade
2. what is the standard of education in zimbabwe, because they can all go to school where they teach them 1+1=5
3. how has the standard of living changed in zimbabwe with their high litearcy rate
4. where doet zimbabwe take a stand as one of africa's top countries
Re: Zimbabwe Has The Highest Literacy Rate In Africa by Nobody: 7:42am On Jul 20, 2013
6. can the highly educated zimbabwe individual stand his counterpart from nigeria, south africa, ghana etc
7. in all of scientific, and educational conferences in africa, does zimbabwe take the lead?
8.are zimbabwean proffesionals recognized in the international community?

after answering the above questions, we can discern by flawless logical reasoning that the list pasted by the op is just another misrepresentation

Who make up the jury of those prizes you listed? the same racist whites who would think that middle school drop out whitey is more intelligent than a Black university professor.
Nobel prize ?? Alfred Nobel himself had credibility issues due to the unlawful business he was involved in during his life time. Did you ask yourself why there is no Nobel Prize in Mathematics ?
