This is a promising message. I hope he will be able to make his words come true. It is about time for the people of Zimbabwe to have a better life.

Hilarious, really hilarious, Zimbabwe is now borrowing money from everyone but just a year or so ago they were telling everybody to f off because of the diamonds.
Now that Mugabe, Zanu and the Chinese have looted them all and the country is totally broken they are borrowing money from Botswana, South Africa, China, the UK and everybody else.

Trust a Zimbabwean and you will be sorry, thatÂ’s a promise. The future is bright, what are they going to turn the lights on for a change?

What a joke we are!

For 32 years Zimbabweans have been listening to this rubbish and for 32 year we have seen nothing but looting, murder and incompetent black fools running our country into the ground.
What a waste of a beautiful country, will black people ever have the intelligence and integrity to run a country successfully?
I personally doubt it, South Africa is heading down the exact same route, as did every other black run country and that a fact that cannot be denied.

Get the map out and see if what I say is true, I think it all boils down to honour and integrity, at the end of the day and the black race does not seem to have those characteristics.
As soon as they get a little bit of power or wealth they start acting like maniacs who have been given the key to the candy store.

Read: Martin Meredith: The State of Africa. "A history of fifty years of independence." An excellent observation that is bound to make you sad for Africa.

Of course I must be, anything to hide the truth hey?

There is a ton of evidence staring us in the face but just as you politically correct Brits do not want to face the truth about where your own country is heading, so you cannot see the truth behind what has happened in Africa.

You can candy coat everything as much as you like but at the end of the day you will be forced to admit the truth, maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow but that day is looming.

Mugabe and the black government took over a fully functional economy and looted it straight into the ground, get the map out and you can trace the same destruction throughout Africa.
White people arrive and build up the country, white people leave and the country crumbles, hell even in the UK the British government has to set up a special police force to deal with black on black violence.

You stay secure in your politically correct fantasy world because the truth is the last thing that people want to face, just type Zimbabwe into Google news any day of the week and weep.
