Same procedure as with the farms. Result? Some very rich Zimbabweans and a further decline of an already failed economy, I am afraid. Mugabe has been a good student. South Afrca's system of apartheid, second edition. Zanu pf is nothing but a well managed criminal organization. MDC members and neutrals are the victims. Poor people. The dream has been shattered. Another five years fear for life, anothe five years of corrupt mismanagement.And that even without any white man's influence. Isn't that clever or what?

I have a feeling things are going to get bad again. As a white Zimbabwean citizen I have found it impossible to get a visa and leave. I am stuck here. I don't have the resources to leave.

No need to hide, nothing to fear.

Some foreigners are so ignorant of how life is in Zimbabwe.

Honestly, it is a safe country and race relations aren't all that bad.

Whites still live here in peace.

Some people of the same race as me lost their farms. That was unfortunate for them but to be honest it hasn't really affected me personally, except that I managed to but dozens of their homes in Harare at dirt cheap prices.

By the way, if things get bad I won't be hiding in South Africa, it will be more like a holiday.

I thought you said you were finding it hard to get a visa and leave and that you do not have the resources?

There's more than one White Zimbabwean posting here, I guess someone stole my name. Seems like he/she is also in Harare though, but in much different circumstances than myself

My situation is tough, this other person seems to be from Borrowdale or something, or one of the other affluent Northern Harare suburbs.

Forgot about the poor whites in Hatfield, Waterfalls etc. did you?

Hence why I said if things get really hard, Namibia and Botswana would be pleased to offer help. I know this because the farm that Ray Kaukonde took once belonged to my friends father who is now a farmer in Namibia and help has been given to some who fled to Botswana. That is if things get so hard that you fear for your safety.

It may be that he is one of the ministers sons or daughers - I suspect most of them are in the K, isn't?

If he was African or even Black he would not use the phrase "stupid black African" even to describe Robert Mugabe. I doubt he is African, just a degenerate white guy, getting off on insulting blacks. Typical.

Lol, ever heard of being in exile because otherwise you would be down a mineshaft for your need to speak the truth?
That's the problem wih many zimbabweans, they think they automatically own the country.
Where does your tribe hail from originally? Burundi maybe???
Pshhhh... Yeah right. Jestina Mukoko, Morgan Tsvangirayi, Nelson Chamisa, Tendai Biti and others have been beaten up, tortured, abducted and ridiculed but still stand strong. Exile my foot, if I am mistaken and you are black then you are probably one of those weakling opportunists that lied their way into the UK under the pretense of fearing for their lives just to escape poverty.... we all know that there are so many "refugees" there because of the lenience towards immigrants. if you have a need to speak the truth, then you are surely doing a poor job at it hiding in the UK aren't you?
Zimbabweans do own Zimbabwe! Otherwise who does?
