Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe is refusing to as much as suggests that the blacks who murdered white farmers in Zimbabwe should be punished.
Addressing thousands of people during Heroes Day commemorations at the national shrine yesterday, Mugabe said the former farmers were killed because they had resisted a government-sanctioned programme.
“Yes, we have those who were killed when they resisted. We will never prosecute those who killed them. I ask: Why we should arrest them?” he said.
At least 12 white former commercial farmers were killed by suspected Zanu PF activists and war veterans during the violent farm grabs, which resulted in international condemnation, resulting in the imposition of travel sanctions by Western countries angry over Mugabe’s wanton disregard of human and property rights.
Refusing to punish a crime means you think it's okay. By refusing to punish the men who killed the white farmers, President Mugabe is saying keep murdering the whites. It is okay in my country.
And this is not the 1st time the President of Zimbabwe has publically stated that he doesn't believe white people should be able to own land. So, his remarks following the glorification of black murders are in alignment with his racist worldviews.
Yesterday, Mugabe reiterated his call for newly-resettled farmers to stop leasing their farms to white farmers.
“Some (white farmers) are coming back under the guise of coming to collect their tractors or asking to work with the new farmers. Some of us are accepting. They (new farmers) are being persuaded like ladies being courted by men without even considering who they are dealing with,” he said.
Western populations are declining. That is part of the reason so many migrants are entering the country. Soon whites will no longer be the majority. And if the African-American people in this country are anything like the people in the countries they came from, we are in for a bumpy ride.
