Only in Zimbabwe can you be chucked into jail for growing food!

Zimbabwe is facing mass starvation, very high inflation and the government is now chucking people into jail for growing food. Leaving aside the fact that it is clearly racist to target white farmers (that nobody seems to have picked up on, its all right when you are racist towards whites, eh? You blithering mentally challenged hypocritical idiots!), look at what they have done now. I quote:

Ten white farmers appeared in court in Zimbabwe yesterday accused of growing crops on their land — in a country where millions of people will need food aid within the next few months.

Since 2000, when the government began seizing white-owned farms, many of them violently, the agricultural sector has collapsed and the economy has gone into freefall, with inflation now at 6,600 per cent, the highest in the world.

The World Food Programme estimates that it will be feeding 4.1 million Zimbabweans, one third of the population, by the end of the year.

Didymus Mutasa, the lands minister, has said that the few hundred remaining white farmers will be forced out, one way or another.

"The position is that food shortages or no food shortages, we are going ahead to remove the remaining whites," he said recently. "Too many blacks are still clamouring for land and we will resettle them on the remaining farms."

Outside the court, the scruffy shops of Chegutu were empty of basic foods, and street vendors sold small, sour oranges.

They came from a once-prolific citrus farm in the district now devastated after it was seized by Bright Matonga, the deputy information minister, earlier this year.


All this to be taken with a grain of piquant salt!!!
