Zimbabwe (African USA) gets its Due.

Note: Zimbawe (Rhodesia) was once the bread basket of Africa. Then the blacks took over and started fighting amongst themselves (tribe vs tribe). They stole the farms from the white farmers, and stole everything in the government not locked down. Robert Mugabwe killed off his opponents and runs his country as an ignorant Marxist (like ours). The 80 odd year old takes a new 13 year old bride each year. The inflation has resulted in 100 Trillion dollar notes. Old notes are cheaper than toilet paper.

 

Zimbabwe to buy maize from Zim farmers in Zambia

 

SW Radio Africa News Stories for 01 July 2010

01 July 2010

 

"While farms that were once highly productive lie idle under the new ownership of ZANU-PF officials and cronies, Zimbabwe is in the process of negotiating a deal to import maize from neighboring Zambia. The tragic irony is that the crops being sought after were grown by white farmers who were illegally booted off their land in Zimbabwe. Many wound up in neighboring countries, which are now benefiting from their expertise.

 

Zambia used to import maize and other food items from Zimbabwe, but with the influx of some of Zimbabwe's best farmers, they've once again produced a surplus maize crop. Zimbabwe on the other hand has recorded a deficit of 500,000 tonnes of the daily food staple this year.

 

Chiredzi based farmer Gerry Whitehead described the whole situation as "disgusting". He said: "Approximately 90% of these Zambian crops are coming from ex-Zimbabwean farmers who were forced off their land here."

 

Sipula Kabanje, Zambia's high commissioner to Zimbabwe, confirmed in reports that the negotiations with Zimbabwe were going on through Zambia's maize agent, the Food Reserve Agency (FRA). He said Zimbabwe also wants to import other food items like wheat, beef and dairy products from Zambia.

 

Whitehead explained that many farms in Zimbabwe are producing nothing at all. He said: "I have travelled quite a bit in Zimbabwe on business and you can see the land is lying idle. I mean you drive between here and Harare and it's hundreds of kilometers of idle land, nothing."

 

The farmer also told us that there has been no maintenance at the power stations at Hwange and Kariba, leading to a chronic shortage of power. Because of this the few farms that are still producing food are having difficulty pumping water for irrigation.

 

Whitehead added that many of the new farm owners need agricultural training and financial management advice. Then there are the many who have no intention of being farmers. He said; "They end up buying new cars and more houses in town and that's it. It is happening here in Chiredzi". Meanwhile the Minister of Agriculture, Joseph Made, was on Wednesday quoted in local state media as saying Zimbabwe should cut imports from South Africa. He said: "Agricultural imports are threatening local farmers. We should ensure fair trade and it is critical that we support our farmers."

 

Made reportedly complained that we should not be importing tomatoes from South Africa when there are many "flooding and rotting at Mbare Musika", the market in Harare.

 

Whitehead dismissed Made's comments, saying: "You can't cut imports from South Africa, that's impossible. We will never be able to do that. It is just talk."

 

The Zimbabwe government has already limited dairy and meat imports from South Africa to almost nothing and local supermarkets have seen a sharp decline in the availability of chickens, eggs and dairy products. This has created a 6 percent increase in food prices in the last few months."

View Post. Robert Mugabwe killed off his opponents and runs his country as an ignorant Marxist (like ours).

Per Wiki:

 

In February 1980, another election was held in Zimbabwe. This time, Robert Mugabe, the Marxist who had fought a seven-year guerilla war against Rhodesia's white-led government, won 64% of the vote, after a campaign marked by widespread intimidation, outright violence, and Mugabe's threat to continue the civil war if he lost. beers.gif

Since the only thing the 'Zimbabwe' currency is good for is toilet paper, how, pray tell, are they going to pay for all that corn? confused.gif With Mugabe's good looks? cwm13.gif No doubt the 1st World is going to be subsidizing the payments for that corn. cwm13.gif

 

The problem with the West and their humanitarian aid, is that it is constantly being used to prop up failed Marxist regimes. And Mugabe is a Marxist thug, make no mistake about that. The claim that he fought Marxists is a play on words; Mugabe, (ZANU), fought with a rival Marxist group, Joshua Nkomo's (ZAPU), although it was also tribal rivalry. Mugabe, heavily aligned with North Korea, used troops trained by the NK's to also massacre 20,000+ Matabele's in the 1980's, with nary a peep from the 'progressive' West. I guess ethnic massacres are just fine if done in the name of 'socialism'. cwm13.gif

 

The claim that Mugabe is not a Marxist dictator is an outright falsehood of the first order. shakehead.gif He is the 'Great Leader' of another totally failed State. Zimbabwe is the North Korea of Africa, plain & simply put. A paradise People's Socialistic Republic; providing that Hell is your idea of paradise. redface.gif

And aligning himself with insane Marxist North Korea makes Mugabe what, a born-again Christian? headscratch.gifshakehead.gifcwm13.gif Birds of a feather, flock together. The proof is in the pudding, and the doing; ignorant, self-serving apologies from our resdient American 'progressives', aside. Then again, defending the indefensible is what the Loony Left does best. cwm13.gif No surprises here. kooky.gif

you dont think this is going to happen here do you? are you comparing Obama to this guy? because that would be just as lame as comparing Bush to hitler. did all this happen because of the fact the farms were taken over by blacks? or did this happen because the whites kept the blacks under educated so they can control them? and when the blacks got their land back that was taken from them by the whites they did not know how to farm their land

In black Africa, all politics are tribal. It is simply just the way it is. Hack, slice, rape what is left over...country after country. "Country" is a Western philosophy. It is simply tribal in every way.
