Zimbabwe seized white farmers’ land. Now some are being invited back.

“The problem now is that we have the land, but they have the experience,” said Mutinhiri, a black landowner. “We need to help each other.”

  • Once the “breadbasket of Africa”, and now receiving food aid.

    Imaging that. All because of political cronyism.

      The hell it doesn’t.

    They’ve been begging them to come back for years.

    Soon as they left 90% of the crops promptly failed..

    I heard they gave up farming and moved on to the astronaut business.

      How very PBS! All it’s missing is some commentary by Shelby Foote!

    Maybe we can ship some of the BLM geniuses over there to help.

  • New Centurion

    I love it. Throw off the chains of your “white oppressors” and when everything goes to hell “invite” them back to fix the problem. I guess whitey’s not that bad after all.

    You can usually infer how long an African country has been free of it’s previous colonizing oppressor – by how far the infrastructure has run-down.

      As I like to say, ‘give Europe to the Africans and Africa to the Europeans. In 20 years Africa will be a paradise and in one year Europe will be a dump’.

      • You got that right.

      • Maggat

        In my mind the only time in history was Africa a clean, productive and safe continent was when it was colonized.

      • disqusW6sf

        Something positive. Warmth.

  • What, you mean ignorance, greed and sloth didn’t work?!?!?! AGAIN!?!?!?

    • lolwut?

      Rapping to the crops didn’t work either.

    Idi Amin ejected Asians from Uganda after supposedly getting a “vision” (More than likely a manifestation of his madness) telling him to do so.

    The results were predictable: Uganda’s economy fell right apart.

    When will old age catch up with Mugabe?

    • It did long ago. That is what the problem is.

  • FactsWillOut

    The place should be annexed, and then kick out all the black folk. Fair is fair.

  • John

    Shorter version: “Please come back…we’re so stupid and inept we’re starving”.

  • terrence

    It was that PRECIOUS lion that really mattered – it does not matter that it was well past the average lifespan of lions – it was shot by an evil trophy hunter, according to the Slimestream media which NEVER once mentioned the number of humans who starve to death “Zimbabwe”

  • BitterClinger

    Why is any white still living there? Get the hell out and let the shitskins starve to death.

  • Maggat

    If it wasn’t for the a$$hole PET the majority of those farmers would be here now living productive lives. Import mid east migrants? NO. Perhaps we could bring these farmers here, they would add immeasurably to our Country.

  • chuck_2012

    The ignorant old coon that is mugabe should have kicked the bucket long ago. I am surprised that the populace have put up with this for so long.

  • Cat-astrophe

    Can you swear in a response?

  • Exile1981

    So the white farmers who survived Mugabi’s purges of their families are supposed to come back andvteach the very same people who stole their land and murdered and raped theirvfamilies how not to starve to death?

    I’m going to go out on a limb and say that no one in their right mind is going to accept this offer.

    Mugabe : “The only white man you can trust is a dead white man.”

  • DMB

    I say let’s not impose our “white privilege” on Zimbabwe and let them starve to death.
