Skip to comments.Robert Mugabe says no whites may own land in Zimbabwe

I have been given a list of 35 white farmers in Mashonaland West alone, Mr. Mugabe told an emotional crowd in what was billed a patriotic speech. We say no to whites owning our land and they should go.
Mugabe, reelected last summer to his fifth consecutive term,
There are white farmers who are still on the land and have the protection of some cabinet ministers and politicians as well as traditional leaders. That should never happen. They [whites] were living like kings and queens on our land and we chucked them out. Now we want all of it.
At the turn of the century Mugabe, a former guerrilla leader, unleashed waves of violent land acquisition by war veterans aligned to his political party. Thousands of white commercial farmers were forced out under a so-called indigenization land reform policy.
Since then, Zimbabwe has been in an economic tailspin, with banks collapsing and with the government unable to pay the wages of many in the civil sector.
Much of the land previously taken by those in the Mugabe regime has benefited the security, police and military wings of the leaders circle.

Mugabe is an evil man. Not much more needs to be said.
How long before the Boy King proclaims that here??
This has been going on in Zimbabwe for years. Cathy Buckle has been righting about the loss of her farm and the farms of her neighbors for at least 15 years.
Many of the former employees stand with the former farmers because they know that Mugabe’s way is the way of starvation and poverty.
Mugabe: the leader Obama wishes he could be.
Holder has asked Mugabe for his PowerPoint notes.
The black liberation movement here wants the same thing.
Classic scapegoating from another oppressive tyrant to focus anger and responsibility away from himself.
Sort of like the projection of the Democrat party and Obama.
There are things that make good targets for MOABs and things that make EXCELLENT targets for MOABs.
I love Mugabe. A perfect example of what is possible. We can all watch from a distance. Thuggery works in most of the world. Someday a leader os going to call for someone’s ouster and it will start a chain reaction for freedom. All we need to do is insist that they take names b4 they kick A$$.
I don't see it.
So this is what our $715 Million in aid does for us.
I didn’t know there were any whites left in Rhodesia.
Does this mean President Obama would not be allowed to own property in Zimbabwe?
Probably in his third term when he declares President for life. I hope that is not a prediction.
Bammy is a mulatto. It's a subtle thing only H0lder can understand.
Mugabe would have made a good project for Carlos Hathcock.
“The black liberation movement here wants the same thing.”
Never; many know without whites they’d be living like Somalis (no indoor plumbing, sanitation, education, medicine). What they want here is an idle life of luxury.
I’m sure Obastard and Holder would love to do exactly what Mugbe has done.
I have been following this white lady from Zimbabwe for about 3 years.
Except the blacks aren’t working the land and these stupid people are starving.
Wow, talk about your inequality and discrimination which they fought against. The pendulum swings but stays the same.
At the end of the British Rule and during the time it was called Rhodesia, this area was a food exporter with very productive farms and ranches. The odds say that there has to be at least some successful native farmers now but Mugabe will destroy them along with the rest of the country as he sells it to the Chinese. Failing Despots reach out to their peers and China has the money.
Mugabe needs the white farmers to blame for his failures. Before Mugabe Rhodesia was the breadbasket of Africa, producing much more food than they consumed. Now the country is in economic ruin and at one time had 1000% inflation PER DAY.
It's like putting a "No Swimming" sign in front of a cesspool.
So basically its going back to the barbaric shitehole it was before whites controlled the country just like South Africa and Kenya.
A lot of the Rhodesian farmers relocated to Zambia and Mozambique where they were actively recruited by the national government to produce badly needed food the locals just weren’t up to growing. The farmers put conditions on their relocation, however, only short-term leases on the land, no ownership and a quick escape route in case things turn sour. Mugabe has done very well in all this, he is a major league thief who has squirreled billions abroad, a typical “communist” first among equals with an emphasis on the “first”.
Several families of Rhodesian farmers move to the Houston area too. One of them lived next door to my brother. They had some scary stories to tell.
He won’t stop until nobody eats in Zimbabwe.
it is going on.
allowig mexicans to invade the southwest.
Racism straight up.
“Can someone please explain to me the difference between Mugabe and Obama?”
Mugabe is a Moderate. Obama is a Radical.
EPA and other agencies working on that. Also taxing citizens to pay for all the illegals.
And not that long ago that country was the food basket of Africa. Same thing happening in Venezuela.
Mugabe is what Obama WANTS to be.
Not one penny of foreign aid should ever be paid to bail
out the starving criminal assholes of Zimbabwe. They killed
and dispossessed white farmers of land they had cultivated
for 300 years. Starve and die you evil bastards.
And with today’s equipment, he could expand his range beyond the already impressive extent of accuracy he established some 40 years ago.
“What they want here is an idle life of luxury.”
WE HAVE A WINNER!
I watched several documentaries on out right tyranny of Mugabe. I’m surprised they haven’t taken him out. In a country hostile to you, you must have some sense of unity.
Thanks; I wish I was wrong...
“They killed and dispossessed white farmers of land they had cultivated for 300 years. Starve and die you evil bastards.”
It is a little more complicated than that; many black workers stayed on those farms to work (wanting a better life than begging), and the Mugabe supporters literally beat them off the farms before chasing the whites off. There are black victims here, too; many are fleeing to South Africa as refugees.
We should just arm an opposition to the teeth. Not nation-building (we wouldn’t even follow up on it with a phone call); just arm them and let nature take its course.
Over there they say “you’re white!” and take away your livelihood by force.
Here they say you’re blowing a dog whistle and your “disparate impact” is a few percentage points off. Then they take away your livelihood by force.
They’re never gonna have it either.
Most slaves do not yearn to be free; most slaves yearn to be masters.
Zimbabwe used to grow enough food to export all around Africa.
Now, with the blacks in control & the whites driven out, Zimbabwe IMPORTS about 90% of all it’s daily needs.
If any other nation had said the same, the liberals would be all over them with apartheid, marches, disinvestments, boycotts, Hollywood movies, etc.
But, in this case.....(crickets)....
