“No Land for Whites in Zimbabwe” Says Mugabe

Whites will never be allowed to own land in Zimbabwe, that country’s president Robert Mugabe has announced, adding that the few remaining white farmers still there “must go.”

Mugabe’s latest racist anti-white outburst has of course been met with complete silence by the liberals in the west, who always lose no opportunity to crow about so-called “white racism” at every opportunity.

Speaking at the launch of Zimbabwe’s “A1 settlement permit” scheme, which supposedly ensures that farmers have security of tenure, Mugabe said that “Zimbabwe was no country for whites as far as land was concerned.”

The A1 permits allow new farmers to access agricultural funding from financial institutions—but of course, whites are excluded.

A Zimbabwe Mail report quoted Mugabe as saying whites in Zimbabwe could only be allowed to own companies, industries and apartments.

According to other local news “Mugabe’s latest pronouncements are likely to send jitters across the agricultural sector and concern the remaining white commercial farmers, some of whom have argued that they never benefited from colonialism.”

Mugabe and his Zanu-PF party launched the land reforms in 2000, taking over white-owned farms to resettle landless blacks.





At the time, Mugabe said the reforms were meant to correct colonial land ownership imbalances.

At least 4,000 white commercial farmers were evicted from their farms.

A satellite image from 2002 shows the extent of the then still ongoing "land redistribution" in Zimbabwe. The farms already seized and under black control can be clearly seen by their desolate brown borders. All of the black-run farms have collapsed and Zimbabwe has become a food importer.

The land seizures were often violent, claiming the lives of several white farmers during clashes with criminal mobs, some of whom pretended to be “veterans” from the Rhodesian bush war, but who in reality were far too young to have partaken in the 1972–1979 conflict.

The seized farms were almost instantly turned into trash heaps and food production collapsed, forcing the formerly prosperous and food-exporting white-ruled state into beggar nation status, relying completely on foreign aid just to feed itself.

At least 2.2 million Zimbabweans depend on foreign food aid just to survive, and, according to a recent report, it has “been like this for more than a decade.

“Before the turn of the century, Zimbabwe, with its fertile farmland, was the breadbasket of southern Africa, exporting wheat and corn to the rest of the continent and beyond. But the agriculture second nose-dived in the early 2000s, a development which critics attribute to President Robert Mugabe’s land reform program which targeted white farmers.

“But Zimbabwe is still a net importer of food. With unemployment hovering at around 80 percent, many people can’t afford to buy food.”

    1. No, you are just so wrong. It can’t be racist. Only whites can be racist. Sarc (for the Americans among the readership who don’t get sarcasm, irony or hyperbole) 🙂

  1. Where is the outcry from the liberals in America ?
    Dan Rather where are you on this story ?
    Surely you should come out of retirement to do a Special along with all your cohorts on this terrible act of racism within Zimbabwe.

  2. You whites are racist .i have visited many countries and i have studyied u .you think you are special .leave our president alone we love him .
    He is right

    1. OK so we are, so why don’t all the blacks move back to Africa from American and Europe? Just like the Jews move to Israel. I’m sure no one will complain.

    2. The president of Zimbabwe is right about one thing, Whites have no business in Africa. Why any White would want to cohabitate with Africans is beyond me.

  3. It seems they do not mind how many starve. It was the non black farmers who fed the nation, provided the employment and the Forex. Now millions starve, is this a good thing to support 2.5% of the population in total luxury , ie McGrab and ZARNU Pf.
    How stupid can the world get to allow this type of Dictator to carry on. The US allows the US Dollar to be the official currency of Zimbabwe,
    Shame
    Frank

  4. What we need to see is this Hitler of Africa as he likes to be called taken to the world court for crimes against both humanity and wildlife. He is a disgrace to Africa and like all regimes that have fallen in the past so his will falter.
