Backtracking like hell: Zimbabwe

The Zimbabwean government does not intend chasing all white farmers out of the country, Zimbabwe's Herald Online reported on Friday. It quoted vice-president Joseph Msika as saying: "Our policy is not to drive all whites out of their farms."

A bit too late, though.

The policy of "one-man one-farm" should not be used against legally settled productive white commercial farmers, he told a farmers union congress in Bulawayo. It was unfortunate that the social and economic justice programme was being wrongly interpreted by some people to justify displacing white commercial farmers.

Very unfortunate; hmm...did you check with your boss or you are just committing suicide?

One obviously cannot just wake up a good farmer, you need to learn," Msika said.
