The IMF smells something fishy

As discussed in a previous post, the origin of the US$120M repaid recently by Zimbabwe to the IMF is raising many questions at all levels:

The International Monetary Fund said on Friday it plans to verify the source of a $120 million payment by Zimbabwe to the global lender last month in a bid by the country to pay down its IMF arrears.

We could have a poll.

What is, in your opinion, the source of the USD$120M?
1) Mugabe’s Swiss account
2) A present from the ANC
3) Mugabe sold Great Zimbabwe to the Chinese
4) An illegal deal
5) Other

Since it can't be either 1 or 2, it's either 3 or 4 (I can't come up with an "other" but maybe Hugo Chavez slipped him some change at their last meeting). For now, I'll go with #3.
