  • The People of Zimbabwe Too Poor, Too Hungry to Care About Cecil the Lion

    Pajamas Media ^ | 08/03/2015 | by Susan L.M. Goldberg
    The first question any logical person would pose upon hearing the Cecil the lion story should be along the lines of whether or not that lion meat (presuming it is edible) was used to feed the people of Zimbabwe. Too bad the story didn’t attract any logical people, those who might give two cents about the suffering of the people, not the animals of Africa. For Western, middle-class and celebrity animal-rights activists, it is simply easier to leave Africa to the Africans, many of whom don’t really get why killing a lion in a nation largely without running water is...

    The brother of Cecil, the lion killed in Zimbabwe by an American hunter last month, is not dead, a researcher monitoring the pride told Reuters, contradicting media reports that Jericho had been killed. "He looks alive and well to me as far as I can tell," said Brent Stapelkamp, field researcher for the Hwange Lion Research Project which is monitoring the lion with a GPS tag. A group called the Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force posted on its Facebook page that Jericho had been killed at 4 p.m. on Saturday, a report picked up by some Western news media that was...

Cecil supposedly told Anderson, who specializes in speaking to clients' deceased pets and charges $75 for a fifteen minute session with up to two animals, that he is now 'finer than ever'. He apparently said he is 'grander than before as no one can take our purity, our truth or our soul'. 'Be strong and speak for all the others who suffer needlessly to satisfy human greed.

    Until 2000 Zimbabwe had a successful wildlife-management program, with many big-game animals flourishing. But by 2003, a staggering 80% of the animals that had lived on Zimbabwean safari camps (which employed firm quotas to regulate animal population sizes) had died. By 2007, there were only 14 private game farms in the country, compared with 620 prior to the land seizures of 2000, according to a National Geographic report. With the protection of private game reserves nearly nonexistent, once abundant wildlife began dying off, hunted by desperate farmers with no other options for sustenance. Despite the passing of harsher laws for...

After his death, there were fears his cubs would be killed by the next lion in the hierarchy so he could father his own offspring with the females in the pride.

"What lion?" acting information minister Prisca Mupfumira asked in response to a request for comment about Cecil, who was at that moment topping global news bulletins and generating reams of abuse for his killer on websites in the United States and Europe.

    As outrage grows over the killing of Cecil the lion, Zimbabwe has called on the United States to extradite the American dentist who shot the prized big cat. Zimbabwe has started extradition proceedings and hopes the United States will cooperate, said Oppah Muchinguri, the African nation's environment minister. Walter Palmer "had a well-orchestrated agenda which would tarnish the image of Zimbabwe and further strain the relationship between Zimbabwe and the USA," Muchinguri said. Palmer, his professional hunter guide, and the owner of the land where the hunt took place are accused of an illegal hunt under the country's Parks and...

Cecil was a major attraction at the Hwange National Park in Matabeleland North, Zimbabwe. Palmer reportedly paid some locals $50,000 to lure the lion outside the park. Palmer then killed the lion with an arrow. Ashe characterized the killing as "a senseless act of cruelty against an innocent animal.

I say tourist attraction instead of 'beloved lion because that hackneyed phrase seems to me a concept empty of meaning. How can a lion be wild and be 'beloved by people who saw him once from a safari jeep? You dont earn the right to 'love a lion that way.

    For 15 years after Zimbabwe's agriculture sector collapsed in the face of President Robert Mugabe's seizure of white-owned farms to resettle landless blacks, the tobacco industry has been booming, with farmers funded by private firms to grow tobacco. But this switch, coupled with the worst regional drought in nearly a decade, has left Zimbabwe in a precarious food situation. Many farmers have complained of low prices as the season ends while buyers argue the quality of the crop was poor. "A number of farmers are crying foul over unsatisfactory (tobacco) prices," said Trevor Saruwaka, member of parliament for Mutasa Central...

    The EFF on Wednesday condemned President Jacob Zuma's alleged "anti-black" remarks made in a speech to the SA Local Government Association. "The Economic Freedom Fighters condemns the racist anti-black and self-hating remarks of President Zuma that poor South Africans are lazy particularly because whites are not in control," spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi said. Speaking in Midrand on Tuesday, Zuma related an anecdote of a visit to an unnamed African country during the liberation struggle. "I got there and people were working very slowly, they were not in a rush, and I asked the comrade who was taking me, 'What's happening?' "He...

    Zimbabwe's lands and resettlement minister Douglas Mombeshora has reportedly moved to evict at least 163 white commercial farmers in Mashonaland East as government intensifies its war against white farmers. This comes a few days after President Robert Mugabe vowed to expel the country's last remaining white farmers from their land. "We don't need a white man to continue to guide us. No. We are now equipped with skills," Mugabe was quoted as saying during a party to celebrate his 91st birthday in Victoria Falls last Saturday. The land grabs were set to continue despite Mugabe publicly admitting a few days...

    When considering what to get Robert Mugabe for his birthday, one first must understand that Zimbabwes president is a man who demands the finest. His birthday parties dont cost hundreds of thousands; they cost millions. His parties arent attended by thousands, but by tens of thousands. And they dont eat elephant; they eat baby elephant. This was the predicament in which one local landowner named Tendai Musasa found himself when figuring out what he would get Mugabe for his 91st birthday party, which cost $1 million and was held this past weekend. We regard him as our father, Musasa said...

    Suspected dissidents disappear after midnight visits to their homes; chilling screams can again be heard from Idi Amin's infamous torture chambers, reopened after a quarter of a century of disuse. From the few that escape come tales of punishment beatings and even mass executions. Welcome to President Yoweri Museveni's Uganda. One of Britain's favourite African states in recent years has, almost unnoticed in the West, become a sinister land where a corrupt regime uses its secret police to rule through fear. The reasons for this transition are not hard to fathom. Mr Museveni has ruled Uganda since 1986, when his...

    Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe, 90, fell down steps from a podium after speaking to supporters upon his return from Ethiopia, say witnesses. Mugabe appeared to miss a step and toppled when he left the raised lectern at the airport Wednesday afternoon, according to several witnesses, who insisted on anonymity because of security concerns. His aides quickly helped him up and escorted him to his limousine which sped away, they said. [] Zimbabwe, a once-prosperous nation of 13 million people in southern Africa, has struggled since Mugabes government began seizing white-owned farms in 2000. Mugabe is accused of using widespread violence...

    Boko Haram is officially an international problem. At least according to the African Union, which asked the United Nations Security Council on Jan. 29 to greenlight an intervention force to bring the Islamist group to its knees. The A.U. plans a 7,500-strong military force, named the Multinational Joint Task Force, and staffed by Nigerian, Cameroonian, Chadian and Beninese troops. If the coalition gets the go-ahead, the soldiers will base in their respective countries, but coordinate and assist each other.

    The African Unions rotating post of chairman has gone to Robert Mugabe. Zimbabwes veteran president enjoys respect across the continent, but faces travel bans from both the US and EU for harassing opponents. Mugabe assumed the largely ceremonial role on Friday at an African Union (AU) summit in Addis Ababa as it leaders and UN chief Ban Ki-moon called for global action against Boko Haram in Nigeria. [] Western nations accuse Mugabe, a former guerrilla leader who fought against white-minority rule in former British-ruled Rhodesia, of crushing political dissent and ruining Zimbabwes rural-based economy. For many in Africa, however, he...

    In 2000, Timon Shava was a hero of Zimbabwes land reform program when he joined hundreds of other landless peasants in a wave of land seizures and evictions of white farmers. Today, he is homeless after police, acting on behalf of President Robert Mugabes wife Grace, destroyed dozens of thatch dwellings on a farm that she wants to control. The First Lady, who has another farm in the area, said last year that she wanted to turn this farm into a wildlife conservancy that could raise money for an orphanage. A new twist on the long struggle over land in...
