"But Zimbabwe has been unable to produce enough wheat since President Robert Mugabe began seizing farms from whites giving them to landless black villagers who have failed to maintain production because they lack skills and inputs.

What inputs?

What inputs?

The eeville Whitey would not give them the secret codes for, uh, making stuff plant itself and grow.

The biggest inputs are fertilizer and seed, both of which are in short supply, and irrigation water which depends on properly maintained drip irrigation lines and equipment

The farm invasions put the seed grower farms out of existence and what seed that was left in storage got eaten.

There have been instances of farmers who had been forcibly driven off their land receiving calls from the "settlers" who replaced them to come fix the pumps on the bore holes that the settlers had burnt out.

There have been instances of settlers ignoring irrigation equipment while they sent their wives and children on kilometer long hikes to the nearest stream to fetch water.

Folk song:

There's a hole in the bucket, dear Lisa dear Lisa
There's a hole in the bucket, dear Lisa a hole

Go fix it dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry
Go fix it dear Henry, dear Henry, fix it.

With what shall I fix it, dear Lisa dear Lisa
With what shall I fix it, dear Lisa with what

With a straw dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry
With a straw, dear Henry, dear Henry, with a straw

But the straw is too long, dear Lisa dear Lisa
The straw is too long, dear Lisa too long

Cut it, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry
Cut it, dear Henry, dear Henry, cut it

With what shall I cut it, dear Lisa, dear Lisa
With what shall I cut it, dear Lisa with what

With an axe, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry
With an axe, dear Henry, dear Henry, with an axe

The axe is too dull, dear Lisa, dear Lisa
The axe is too dull, dear Lisa too dull

Sharpen it, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry
Sharpen it, dear Henry, dear Henry, hone it

On what shall I sharpen it, dear Lisa dear Lisa
On what shall I hone it, dear Lisa on what

On a stone, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry
On a stone, dear Henry, dear Henry, with a stone

But the stone is too dry, dear Lisa dear Lisa
The stone is too dry, dear Lisa too dry

Well wet it, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry
Well wet it, dear Henry, dear Henry, wet it

With what shall I wet it, dear Lisa, dear Lisa
With what shall I wet it, dear Lisa with what

Try water, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry
Try water, dear Henry, dear Henry, use water

In what shall I fetch it, dear Lisa, dear Lisa
In what shall I fetch it, dear Lisa in what

In a bucket, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry
In a bucket, dear Henry, dear Henry, in a bucket

(but...but..) There's a hole in the bucket, dear Lisa, dear Lisa
There's a hole in the bucket, dear Lisa a hole
