Mugabe's End Game

Mad Bobby Mugabe is signalling his intention to completely eradicate Zimbabwe's white farmer class. M&C News reports:

Harare - Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe lashed out Saturday at the few remaining white farmers in Zimbabwe at the end of a three-day ruling party conference.

Mugabe said Zimbabwe had to look after its own people's interests first before those of white people.

'We still have white Rhodesian farmers resisting land reform often supported by some of us in the party and government,' he said.

Addressing thousands of members of his Zimbabwe African National Union - Patriotic Front (ZANU-PF) at the conference in Esigodini, southern Zimbabwe, Mugabe said: 'We do not defend Rhodesian settler interests against those of our people.

Similar pronouncements have accompanied earlier racist purges in which whites were killed or driven off their lands which were then turned over to Mugabe's cronies. Only about 300 white farmers remain in Zimbabwe. Twelve were killed and another twenty thrown off their lands by armed thugs in recent weeks. Much more of this and white Zimbabwe will cease to exist.
