Mugabe men kill white farmer and drink his blood!
UK Independent ^

Posted on 10/27/2002 3:47:33 PM PST by BlackJack

Rampaging war veterans killed a white farmer, David Stevens, and drank his blood mixed with alcohol, the Zimbabwe High Court has been told. The accusation was made by a witness testifying against four militants from the ruling Zanu-PF party, charged with the murder in April 2000 of Mr Stevens, a farmer and opposition political activist.

The militants are the first to face trial over the deaths of 12 white farmers – and 200 black activists – at the hands of President Robert Mugabe's supporters after the Zimbabwe government unleashed a violent campaign to seize and occupy white farms.

The High Court heard that war veterans occupying Mr Stevens' Arizona Farm, in Macheke, 100 miles east of the capital, Harare, frogmarched him to their office in the nearby Murehwa district. He was beaten and then dragged to a burial shrine for heroes of the 1970s independence war, where he was shot.

"One of them knelt over Stevens' body and brought a container filled with blood, which they mixed with alcohol and shared among themselves," the witness, who cannot be named for his own protection, told the High Court judge, Benjamin Paradza.

The four accused – Richard Svisviro, Muyengwa Munyuki, Charles Matanda and Douglas Chitekuteku – were arrested and remanded shortly after the murder. A fifth suspect, Banda Katsvamudanga, has disappeared.

This month, Jocyline Chiwenga, the wife of Zimbabwe's army commander, threatened to kill a white farmer, saying she had not "tasted white blood" for a long time. The farmer is taking legal step to recover money for his produce, which was soldafter Mrs Chiwenga forcibly evicted him.

In a separate development Geoffrey Nyarota, editor of the Daily News, Zimbabwe's only independent newspaper, has been charged with "undermining confidence" in the police by publishing claims of police torture made in court by an opposition activist.

After we bomb Iraq back to the stoneage - not all that far for them - then we should bomb these animals to hell and back. They don't deserve to remain on this earth.

Oh. And I suppose there isn't the slightest hope that the victim will turn out to have been infected with something really, really lethal?

Savages might be a better word. There is a sort of obscene respectability to the word thugs. Africa is a nightmare.

To be expected. Soon there will be a feast with "Long Pig"at the next celebration of the great god Ju Ju. The maidens will dance, the warriors will waive their spears, and the crops will yield one grain for every two that were planted.

Hanging is too good for the slimy swine that sold the Rhodesians into this hell.

In light of the chaos that comes with black rule and with the talk of reparations for slavery, it seems that one question needs to be asked:
Where would the black race be today had there never been slavery?

"war veterans occupying Mr Stevens' Arizona Farm"

How can something sound so normal yet be representative of something so barbaric? Ignoring the fact that you didn't actually have to be a veteran of the war to be a war veteran....

Wasn't it Aristotle who said that EVIL PREVAILS WHEN GOOD MEN DO NOTHING?

Pookie & Me living a comfortable distance from Africa and amongst (prior but reformed) cannibals in the South Pacific...

We must respect the rule of law.

And it's very possible that using the blood of a white person as a mixer may not be illegal in the Zimbabwe of the 21st century.

If this is the "world" that Africans and the U.N. permit to exist --- they should be permitted to wallow in it until their own self destruction or starvation.... Whichever comes first...

I, for one -- will never trust or willingly support either..

Most of these "war veterans" are too young to have actually fought in the so-called freedom struggle under the old Rhodesia, over twenty years ago. They use the same tactics, however: kill and murder isolated farmers.

The drinking of blood is another way for AIDS to spread.
Its not "safe" cannibalism.

As we all know, the UN isn't really interested in helping oppressed nations and peoples. Those up there just are interested in MONEY for themselves, taken from us of course.
The UN is a joke! And as big a hustler as Jessie Hijackson

Any white man who left Zimbabwe in 1980, saying, "Someday the blacks will kill you and drink your blood" would have been branded as the worst kind of racist. I wish there were interviews with whites who DID leave in 1980, so we could hear about their reasons and premonitions.

There is. One is named RobyNoel. He has and still is warning people about what happened in Rhodesia. It is getting roots here under the mantra of Political Correctness.

Unfortunatly he has been banned. He is seeing the beginnings of what happened in Rhodesia start here in this countrry.
