White farmers under fresh siege

Farm invaders taunt white farmer

HARARE – White commercial farmers have come under renewed siege from farm invaders following the disbandment of the Sadc Tribunal last week, according to representatives.

Charles Taffs, the Commercial Farmers Union vice president said his organisation had received fresh invasions in Manicaland’s Chipinge area as well as on the outskirts of Harare this week.

He said the dissolution of the Sadc Tribunal, the white farmers’ last frontier of hope, had left them as cannon fodder to President Robert Mugabe’s allies clamouring for the complete removal of whites from farms.

Sadc leaders last Friday dissolved the Sadc Tribunal, which acted as a regional court for citizens denied justice in their own countries, for 12 months pending a review of operations.

“These new invasions are being encouraged because of the disbandment of the Sadc Tribunal which had ruled in our favour in the past two years and we want a way forward over these matters as the invasions are disrupting farming operations,’’ said Taffs.

Although the Zimbabwe government had refused to recognise the court’s rulings, positive judgments from the court kept a glimmer of hope for white farmers whose majority lost land under the often-violent land reform programme.

Taffs said only 230 commercial farmers remained in business from 4 500 at the start of the land reforms in 2000.

Those remaining white farmers are the only source of domestic food left in what was once Rhodesia.

Sorry, but the whole failed state deserves to starve to death. Doubly so for the invaders.

Idiots. At some point, stupidity and envy are in fact terminal...

I’ve been reading these stories for 10 years. How can there possibly be any white farmers left?

A civilized country destroyed. And no one, no one in the civilized world, including many of us here, is willing to recognize the cause, to name the villains, the barbarians, the race, the inferiority of one human culture over others.

Carry on, the guilt ridden.

230 guys makes for a smallish phalanx.

Maybe so but they should pay close attention to the way the nazis tightened the noose around the Jews. The same thing is happening to white Zims.

Just let them die out; Zimbabwe can become a game preserve, with historcal monuments where white settlers used to feed a continent.

In the meantime, don’t invest a penny (or another moment of thought) on the hole that was Rhodesia.

Truer words were never spoken; that’s probably how it will work out. South Africans are already repulsing black Zimbabweans trying to cross their border illegally, accusing them of stealing jobs from South Africans and dragging down their standard of living. We should invite those South Africans to live along our southern border.

Any white farmer left in Rhodesia needs to escape by any means necessary. They've already shown they don't have the stomach to do what's necessary so they should run like the cowards they are.

Give the blacks what they want and let them reap the consequences of ruin and slaughter.

And some of those English speaking farmers have been denied immigration to the USA, as have many other English speaking, western culture individuals—even many who were married to American citizens. ...all for “free trade,” political correctness and globalism.

“Sorry, but the whole failed state deserves to starve to death.”

And who will get blamed for Zimbabwe starving to death?

Yep, Whitey!

I think there is risk for whites there, but a lot more blacks know that for the time being they are needed. The Zimbabwe problems are hardly encouraging South Africans to boot out the only people currently saving them from the same fate. South Korean troops in Vietnam were to show the South Vietnamese what could be accomplished if they resisted communism; South Vietnam fell and became a backwards basket case, while South Korea still thrives.

The white farmers should get out with what they can.

I weary of the 'gimmie' attitude. Let them have it, they won't keep it long, and let them then starve in the cesspit they've created.

Interesting picture. The crowd in back looks well fed and well dressed for poor, downtrodden, Mugabe “veterans”.

I totally agree. Left to themselves, the blacks in Zimbabwe will be starving and eventually the Chinese will be their new colonial masters, and they won’t be near as civilized as the Brits were.
