Zimbabwe asks white farmers to return
« on: April 21, 2006, 03:40:11 PM »
Zimbabwe's white farmers say they have been invited to apply for land - in an apparent U-turn by the government which has seized their land.
All but 300 of the 4,000 white farmers have been forced off their land since President Robert Mugabe started his "fast-track" land reform in 2000.

A farmers' leader says some 200 applications have already been made and more are coming in.

Critics say the reforms have devastated the economy and led to massive hunger.

Foreign currency

Much of the formerly white-owned land is no longer being productively used - either because the beneficiaries have no experience of farming or they lack finance and tools.

Many farms were wrecked when they were invaded by government supporters.


The government has admitted that the exercise has been beset by corruption.
But Mr Mugabe blames Zimbabwe's economic problems on a plot by Western countries to topple him.

"There is an understanding that our members want to play a significant role in agriculture production, food security and generation of foreign currency for the country," Trevor Gifford, Commercial Farmers' Union vice-president told Reuters news agency.

"It is within this context that we were invited to submit the applications and I do know that instructions have been given to provincial land committees to process the applications and we are now awaiting responses," he said.

'No going back'

Didymus Mutasa, the minister in charge of land reform, could not be reached for comment.

But on Wednesday he said: "There is definitely no going back on our policy on land."

He also said that 99-year leases for commercial farms would be distributed by June, which he hoped would lead to higher agricultural output.

Earlier this year, Agriculture Minister Joseph Made told the BBC News website that any Zimbabwean was free to apply for land, whether white or black, as long as they used it.

Under colonial rule, the best agricultural land was reserved for whites - a policy which Mr Mugabe says he is trying to reverse.

But many white-owned farms were highly mechanised, productive businesses which formed the backbone of the economy.

The opposition says Mr Mugabe is using the land to buy votes.

iraq would just get annexed by iran


That would be a great solution.  If Iran and the majority of Iraqi's are pleased with it, then why shouldn't they do it?

zimbabwe is a sad case and mugabe is a pathetic leader.
this is sad for black africans as the white folks and even black citizens look down on having balck people in a position of power. tehir wary that the blacks dont have the necessary skills and experience to take on the job of running a country and mugabe's tyrnannical reign has further tainted their image. its like in south africa where the blacks r given more power and promoted to positions such as policemen and then abuse thier power. this happens a lot. one of my uncles cousins was shot and killed by a black policeman off duty with a gun but since affirmative action or whatever they get off. i just hope that there can be a true leader of the poeple that can govern and lead these african countries that noone else gives a shit so that they can show the world that africa is a beautiful place and is progressing.

if i dont make any sense im sorry cuz i just blazed a while ago.

27/01/2006  10:00:45  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  yeah i was lucky
27/01/2006  10:01:10  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  it was great when i was young so i can't really complain; i could never have had that childhood here
27/01/2006  10:01:18  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  i have a lot to be thankful for
27/01/2006  10:03:01  Last Of A Dying Breed  Need a holiday  yea, i'm quite jelous really
27/01/2006  10:03:40  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  no you shouldn't be
27/01/2006  10:04:02  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  families and friends have been torn apart
27/01/2006  10:04:10  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  at least you know where everyone is
27/01/2006  10:04:57  Last Of A Dying Breed  Need a holiday  yea i can understand all that the situation now is messed up
27/01/2006  10:05:15  Last Of A Dying Breed  Need a holiday  but then to be fair it was for the africans before too
27/01/2006  10:05:58  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  i disagree completely
27/01/2006  10:06:17  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  when africa was colonised the africans were still running around in with spears
27/01/2006  10:06:28  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  and dying of malaria and dysentry left right and centre
27/01/2006  10:06:40  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  and killing and eating each other
27/01/2006  10:07:00  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  and besides, the land that is being taken away from people was BOUGHT
27/01/2006  10:07:09  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  on a willing buyer, willing seller basis
27/01/2006  10:07:20  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  it wasn't stolen
27/01/2006  10:08:02  Last Of A Dying Breed  Need a holiday  i can kinda se that but they were made second class citizens intheir own country
27/01/2006  10:09:24  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  that's bollocks because at the moment, most of the very rich people in zmibabwe are black
27/01/2006  10:09:49  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  i know a old white lady who's pension is equivalent of 20p a month
27/01/2006  10:09:50  Last Of A Dying Breed  Need a holiday  i'm not saying the situation now is any better
27/01/2006  10:09:57  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  so who's the second rate citizen?
27/01/2006  10:10:02  Last Of A Dying Breed  Need a holiday  in fact its probably 1000 times worse
27/01/2006  10:10:56  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  you know, the question that always pops up in my head when i'm having this argument; if the africans want africa so badly; why the hell are they all claiming asylum in england?
27/01/2006  10:11:11  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  they can't claim ownership of both
27/01/2006  10:11:40  Last Of A Dying Breed  Need a holiday  it could of become like south africa is today, but bad governemence messed them up
27/01/2006  10:11:54  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  it used to be way better than south africa
27/01/2006  10:12:06  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  the zimbabwe dollar used to be stronger than the pound
27/01/2006  10:12:11  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  not by much, but it was
27/01/2006  10:12:25  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  what you need to understand about afria and africans
27/01/2006  10:12:55  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  is that they understand and respect power and nothing else
27/01/2006  10:13:33  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  only the strong survive; so whether it's white people who are dominating them or another african
27/01/2006  10:13:44  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  that domination will always exist
27/01/2006  10:15:00  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  brb
27/01/2006  10:15:20  Last Of A Dying Breed  Need a holiday  thats true but its not fair descriminite by colour especially in a country where minority rules
27/01/2006  10:15:21  Last Of A Dying Breed  Need a holiday  k
27/01/2006  10:16:55  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  which country are we talking about? and who is the minority?
27/01/2006  10:17:55  Last Of A Dying Breed  Need a holiday  both zimbabwe and south africa when whites were minority ruling class
27/01/2006  10:18:20  Last Of A Dying Breed  Need a holiday  you may have done a better job at running the country but it wasn't necessairly equitable
27/01/2006  10:19:21  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  that is nonsense, you seem to have this impression that all whites in africa are loaded and live in mansions, and the blacks live in squalor
27/01/2006  10:19:26  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  that's not true
27/01/2006  10:19:39  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  i'm not going to pretent that all whites are poor and all blacks are rich
27/01/2006  10:19:43  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  coz that's not true
27/01/2006  10:20:10  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  but what it comes down to is lack of education for black children
27/01/2006  10:20:27  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  the governents (particularly in zim) just do not provide it
27/01/2006  10:20:37  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  education is NOT free in africa
27/01/2006  10:20:44  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  even at a government school
27/01/2006  10:21:00  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  it's a vicious cyle that only the governments can stop
27/01/2006  10:21:19  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  and those governments are black. that's not discrimination; it's a fact
27/01/2006  10:22:15  Last Of A Dying Breed  Need a holiday  like i said i'm not trying to claim the situation now is any better
27/01/2006  10:22:45  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  it's always bene that way
27/01/2006  10:22:53  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  been*
27/01/2006  10:23:03  Last Of A Dying Breed  Need a holiday  in the 80s zimbabwe had the best education system in africa now its one of the worst
27/01/2006  10:24:22  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  so why then, did the blacks not take advantage of that and make decent lives for themselves? 
27/01/2006  10:24:26  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  no one was stopping them
27/01/2006  10:24:52  Last Of A Dying Breed  Need a holiday  because mugabe is a retard!
27/01/2006  10:24:58  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  if the graduates of 20 years ago had made the effort, zimbabwe's economy would be booming
27/01/2006  10:25:04  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  lol..amen to that
27/01/2006  10:25:51  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  i think the best thing to do with africa, is leave it to the africans
27/01/2006  10:26:14  Last Of A Dying Breed  Need a holiday  trouble is they're more currupt than we were
27/01/2006  10:26:28  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  let the system collapse entirely, let em starve or kill each other or whatever they wanna do for a few years, and when they're ready to co-operate, go back
27/01/2006  10:27:38  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  when they realise how shitty it is without people who work hard and maintain things properly; because to be honest, i do beleive that they have not adapted enough yet to cope
27/01/2006  10:28:05  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  again; not a racist statement. but one has to bear in mind that 200 years ago, africans were still in the stone age
27/01/2006  10:28:17  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  humans are not meant to evolve to fast as they have
27/01/2006  10:28:30  Last Of A Dying Breed  Need a holiday  they're needed to be a much slower transition from a most of our colonies towards independence....most of countries weren't ready which lead to single party staes, power stuggles, corruption and wars
27/01/2006  10:28:53  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  no they weren't, but they were adamant they were, and they faught for it
27/01/2006  10:29:20  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  so that was the choice of each individual country
27/01/2006  10:30:16  Last Of A Dying Breed  Need a holiday  it wasn't just that though we were under alot of pressure from the likes of america to get out after they helped us in ww2
27/01/2006  10:30:45  Need a holiday  Last Of A Dying Breed  fuckiong americans are shit heads

iraq would just get annexed by iran


That would be a great solution.  If Iran and the majority of Iraqi's are pleased with it, then why shouldn't they do it?

That was my point. Driving white people out of a country is a sure fire way to make it shitty. White people are the ones who start up businesses and create jobs and help govern nations and make them organized and orderly. So it isn't a suprise they are begging white people to come back after Zimbabwe has become chaotic.

The girl that Don Rizzle was tlaking to was 100% right. Except for the part about Americans.....

That was my point. Driving white people out of a country is a sure fire way to make it shitty. White people are the ones who start up businesses and create jobs and help govern nations and make them organized and orderly. So it isn't a suprise they are begging white people to come back after Zimbabwe has become chaotic.

The girl that Don Rizzle was tlaking to was 100% right. Except for the part about Americans.....
