I don't know about your particular country, but anyone using a metaphor 
about an identifiable person or persons involving the word 'thief' in 
England risks a Claim of defamation.

And it seems that in parts of Africa that may be MUCH more risky.


> The charge related to a front page column headlined "Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves," with a photo of President Laurent Gbagbo in the center and photos of former members of his government who have been imprisoned in recent corruption scandals, according to CPJ research. An arrow identified Gbagbo as "Ali Baba."
