Gov't seizes farms from white farmers in Zimbabwe. - February 28th 2009, 10:23 PM

Source: The BBC.

Quote:
In November, the tribunal ruled that Zimbabwe's plans to seize dozens of white-owned farms were illegal under international rule and should be halted immediately.

Zimbabwe's Commercial Farmers Union says that, in the past month, operations at about 150 farms have been disrupted. Some farmers have been evicted.

Mr Mugabe said the new government would continue to push for a majority stake in companies operating in Zimbabwe.

I told you to be balanced

Robert Mugabe just might be the most out-of-touch leader in the entire world right now. He had a birthday party that costed $250K while the inflation rate in Zimbabwe is the highest in the world and growing, and most people can't even afford bread.

This has been happening for years, the black people who take them over don't know how to run them and so the economy goes to pot
