Nando's 'Mugabe' ad causes controversy in South Africa

A South African fast food chain has withdrawn a TV advert which pokes fun at Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe as "the last dictator standing".

Nando's South Africa said it decided to act after receiving threats to its staff in Zimbabwe from a youth group loyal to Mr Mugabe.

This is a short clip from the video, which starts with a sad Mugabe look-a-like dining alone, before reverting to a a series of fabricated flashbacks - supposedly featuring Muammar Gaddafi, Uganda's Idi Amin and other late autocratic rulers.
