Zimbabwe qualifies to be called the Garden of Eden; it was rich soils and the ideal weather condition to grow crops and farm animals. The fact that the country has now been turned from the breadbasket of the region to one where millions are facing starvation is proof of just how corrupt and incompetent Mugabe and his Zanu PF thugs are.
Mugabe and his immediate family own no few than 13 commercial farms and the rest of the Zanu PF ruling elite are not far behind. Other than Mugabe and his family's farms which kept up production but only because they receive massive direct and indirect subsidies most commercial farms have fallen into disuse. The days of large fields of tobacco or maize during the rainy season and wheat during the cold months are long gone.
It was no accident that Zimbabwe's economic meltdown started hot on the heels of the farm seizures; Zimbabwe's agriculture formed the backbone of the national economy. When the agricultural sector collapsed the national economy collapsed too.
Mugabe and his cronies destroyed the economy by seize the white own farms and sharing them out amongst themselves; blaming the economic collapse on sanctions is a total nonsense.
We live in the day and age where technology has allowed people, clever people, to turn deserts into blooming fields. We live in the nearest thing to the Garden of Eden where we require the bare minimum of effort to have a bumper harvest and yet we are starving. If anything has captivated the very essence of Mugabe and his cronies' breath-taking incompetence it has to be how their have turned Zimbabwe from a breadbasket of the region into a nation of beggars, ever begging for food!
