Expulsion of White Farmers has Destroyed Zimbabwe


Altruistic whites brought an era of prosperity to Africa, they dramatically elevated the standard of living for all Africans.

Following the Uhuru, it has all come crashing down. “Afrocentric Marxism” has been a catastrophe for the black race. The stunning confession about the country’s poor financial state is the culmination of years of ruinous economic policy by Zimbabwe’s despotic President Robert Mugabe, who has ruled the southern African country since independence from Britain in 1980. A decade ago Mugabe, now aged 88, launched his racial policy of expropriating white-owned farmland and handing it to blacks.

The policy, which saw 4,000 white farmers forcibly kicked off their land, was economically disastrous as in many cases the farms’ new owners lacked the skills or inclination to run the farms properly. It also demolished investor confidence in the country, paralysed production, and prompted international sanctions. As a result, Zimbabwe – which was once the fertile ‘bread basket’ of southern Africa and possesses fantastic mineral wealth – is now one of the continent’s poorest countries.

Three-quarters of the population live on less than £1 a day and over half of the work force is unemployed. In 2008 hyperinflation in the country reached the astronomical figure of 230 million per cent – meaning that paper money became worthless almost as soon as it was printed. The former British colony now uses US dollars.

Speaking on Tuesday afternoon, Mr Biti claimed that the state’s dire lack of cash means it does not have enough money to organise the constitutional referendum. ‘We will be approaching the international community to assist us in this regard’, Mr Biti said.
