I FOR ONE- DO NOT UNDERSTAND THE REASONING OF THE BLACK TRIBES, BUT THEN AGAIN- THEY CANNOT REASON. ON THE ONE HAND- THEY GRAB THE PRODUCTIVE LAND FROM FARMERS THAT SUPPLY THEIR FOOD-CHAINS- PLACE INCAPABLE IDIOTS TO TAKE OVER THE FARMS...AND THEN BITTERLY COMPLAIN THAT THEIR IS NO FOOD NO MORE!
SO- YESTERDAY- ZIMBABWE WAS THE RICHEST BREAD BASKET IN AFRICA- FEEDING OTHER AFRICAN DILAPIDATED DICTATORIAL FAMISHED NATIONS. TODAY- AFTER KILLING AND CHASING THEIR PRODUCERS ON THE FARMS OFF...THEY THEMSELVES ARE NOW BEGGARS IN FAMISH.
IS THIS MAYBE WHAT THE NEW WORLD ORDER WANTED- A PERFECT OPPORTUNITY TO PLAY HALF-WITS LIKE A YO-YO TO GET TO THE RICHES OF ZIMBABWE BY USING THE OLD 'FOOD-FOR-MINERALS" TRICK- POVERIZE THEM- THEN FEED THEM WHILE YOU STEAL THEIR MINERALS BEHIND THEIR BACKS? WE CAN JUST GUESS WHO WILL BE SITTING BEHIND THIS AGE-OLD HELLISH IDEA- THE EVIL TWINS....USA AND BRITAIN- WHO ELSE?
THE ZIMBABWEANS, SIMPLE MINDED AS THEY ARE -IN THE ONE HAND- ACKNOWLEDGE THE FACT THAT THE FARM INVASIONS BROUGHT THEIR COUNTRY TO COLLAPSE- BUT ON THE OTHER HAND- STILL THEY PROCEED TO INVADE THE LITTLE FARMS THAT IS LEFT TO FEED THE MARKET.....ASTONISHING! WHAT WE HAVE HERE- IS TYPICAL AFRICAN LOCUST MENTALITY...."WE CAME- WE INVADE- WE PERISH" - AND NWO MENTALITY: "WE CAME- WE IMPOVERISH- WE STEAL." TWO EVIL AXES WORKING IN CO-ORDINATION TO BRAKE A WEALTHY COUNTRY'S BACK IN RECORD TIME. THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WEST MEETS MONKEY- ONE THING THE MONKEYS IN SA STILL HAVE TO LEARN...A LESSON THEIR SO-CALLED ANC LEADERS KNOWS WILL BE COMING- FOR THEY GET PAID TO HELP THE PROCESS OF DECAY
Zimbabweans face bleak independence day
by Sebastian Nyamhangambiri Saturday 17 April 2010
HARARE – Zimbabwe marks 30 years of independence this weekend but there will be little to celebrate as the United Nations (UN) announced on Friday that the country’s humanitarian crisis is set to continue because of yet another poor yield from the 2009/2010 agricultural season and donor fatigue.
Tomorrow President Robert Mugabe – Zimbabwe’s sole ruler since independence from Britain in 1980 – will preside over the celebrations in Harare. Jamaican singer Sizzla Kalonji has been hired to perform Saturday night ahead of Sunday’s main event at the National Sports Stadium.
But for many Zimbabweans reeling under the decade-long economic collapse of the former breadbasket of southern Africa, it will likely be just another day.
UN humanitarian coordinator in Zimbabwe Elizabeth Lwanga appealed to the international world to assist the troubled country, saying last year’s appeal for $722 million for humanitarian aid – most of which was for food assistance – had received “relatively successful response”.
“Unfortunately, in 2010 we have so far been confronted with serious cuts in funding. As of today, the CAP (Consolidated Appeal Process) is funded at 26 percent, an all-time low in the history of CAP in Zimbabwe,” she said, adding; “It is clear that humanitarian assistance is still urgently required.”
Last year Mugabe formed a power-sharing government with his foe now Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai, after a disputed election. The fragile coalition has stabilised the economy but has failed to attract foreign funding to support economic recovery due to power-sharing disputes between the two leaders, with Mugabe being accused of resisting full implementation of the global political agreement that gave birth to the unity administration.
A joint government and United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) crop assessment report released last month urged Harare to start emergency food relief programmes to areas that have been affected by drought, while 500 000 metric tonnes (MT) of maize should be set aside annually to mitigate any food deficits.
The joint report follows projections that up to 11 percent or 200 000 hectares of this year’s maize crop in the southern African country was a total write-off.
Zimbabwe has grappled with severe food shortages over the past decade after Mugabe disrupted the key agriculture sector through his chaotic and often violent land reform programme.
The farm seizures reduced agricultural production by 60 percent resulting in most Zimbabweans depending on food handouts from international food relief agencies.
But Mugabe denies that his land reforms – that he says were necessary to ensure blacks also had access to arable land that they were denied by previous white-led governments – triggered the food shortages blaming the crisis on drought and economic sabotage by his Western enemies that he says crippled the economy’s capacity to produce key inputs such as seed and fertilizers. – ZimOnlinehttp://www.zimonline.co.za/Article.aspx?ArticleId=5951
