Zimbabwe – food insecurity disaster

When you look at the video material about Zimbabwe and food shortages, it is certainly not dry, but it is not generalizable – maybe it is only in one area. The environment is extremely green there, or is it something else sitting behind that makes people even more “dependent” on other countries’ food – Zimbabwe which was once one of the largest food suppliers and food basket in Africa.  Now it is nothing but have no food.

If it was dry in the area, there would not have been so much green grass or trees – see the video footage where it is shown. Trees are lost, in drought times,  all their leaves and die if it is dry – grass would have been dead even if it was dry as they said.

So it’s not just drought and, as some claim, the climate has changed (perhaps rather manipulated by certain powers, such as the milk of clouds and we all know what it is, and it was done before 1994 to manipulate clouds (HAARP ).   

Perhaps, another much greater reason(s) is the perpetual racism and discrimination against whites in Zimbabwe and also in South Africa today. Who drove the farmers who were in Zimbabwe away, because they are not black and caused all the food shortages today?

Drought is very severe just like in South Africa and here too our Boers are being chased and driven out of the country for minerals as well as falsely accused of theft of land. That in itself is false allegations without evidence.   We will soon be in the same position as Zimbabwe.    We ourselves are faced with 400-600 white poor camps due to black empowerment, which Zimbabwe does not sit with, therefore, worse than during the Anglo-Boer wars.

Black SA leaders and even most of their supporters deny white poverty, murders and assaults and take pleasure in our circumstances which helped them to get rid of us. Just as Zimbabwe’s wheel has turned, many wheels in South Africa will also turn, soon.

How many of the citizens of Zimbabwe is here in South Africa today?

Wanneer mens na die video materiaal kyk wat oor Zimbabwe en voedseltekorte gaan, is dit beslis nie droog nie, maar dis nie om te veralgemeen nie – dalk is dit net in een gebied so.   Die omgewing is uiters groen daar, of is dit iets anders wat hieragter sit wat mense nog meer “afhanklik” maak van ander lande se voedsel – Zimbabwe wat eens een van die grootste kosvoorsieners in Afrika was. 

Indien dit droog was in die gebied, sou daar nie soveel groen gras of bome gewees het nie – sien die video materiaal waar dit gewys word.   Bome kwyn weg, verloor in droogtetye al hul blare en vrek, as dit droog is – gras sou ookal gevrek gewees het as dit droog was.   

Dit is dus nie net droogte nie en soos sommiges beweer die klimaat wat verander het (dalk eerder gemanipuleer deur sekere magte, soos die melk van wolke en ons almal weet wat dit is, en dit is al voor 1994 gedoen om wolke te manipuleer (HAARP).

Nog ‘n baie groter rede is die alewige rassisme en diskriminasie teenoor blankes in Zimbabwe en ook in Suid-Afrika.   Wie het die boere wat daar was in Zimbabwe, weggejaag omdat hulle nie swart is nie en al die voedeltekorte veroorsaak  het?   

Droogte is nes in Suid-Afrika baie erg en ook hier word ons Boere verjaag en landuit gejaag vir minerale asook vals beskuldig van diefstal van grond.     Dit opsigself is valse beweringe sonder bewyse   Ons gaan binnekort in dieselfde posisie wees as Zimbabwe en niemand verlekker hul in ander se swaar omstandighede nie.   Ons sit self met 400-600 blanke arm kampe weens swart bemagtiging, waarmee Zimbabwe nie sit nie, dus, erger as tydens die Anglo-Boere oorloe.   

Swart SA Leiers ontken blanke armoede, moorde en aanvalle en verlekker hul in ons omstandighede wat hulle help skep het om van ons ontslae te raak.  Nes Zimbabwe se wiel wat gedraai het, gaan daar nog baie wiele in Suid-Afrika ook draai.   Hoeveel burgers van Zimbabwe maak hul tuis hier in Suid-Afrika en dan is dit heelwat van hulle wat ook aangaan oor blanke Boere in SA.

DISASTERS ON ITS WAY

There is no food security, Zimbabwe probably produced more when they were operating than us in South Africa. Everyone from above Africa is coming here, but they have to go back and produce food, have more water than in SA. Which country in Africa really makes food?
Daar is geen voedselsekerheid nie, Zimbabwe het waarskynlik meer vervaardig toe hulle in bedryf was as ons in Suid-Afrika.   Almal van bo Afrika stroom hiernatoe, maar hulle moet terug en gaan voedsel produseer, het meer water as in SA.  Watter land in Afrika vervaardig regtig voedsel?

Zimbabwe – South Africa

*

Ons loop identies dieselfde pad, en ons is almal op daardie pad, die blankes ingesluit. 

This is the very same road that South Africa follows – when there are no more farmers and no food for anyone – no shop and no food.    There are no differences between us and Zimbabwe.   Also for us, we are still living in this chaos and country –  the Afrikaner and Boer (whites).   We are also living between others and are included in this and also the millions of immigrants,  who walk across our borders into our country and come and try and make a living here.   We also have drought in our country and people that don’t know that, are blind.   We have that for years now, in different areas.   

Zimbabwe and his people – children

The World Food Program says it needs $103 million to meet urgent food assistance in Zimbabwe, where more than half the population is food insecure due to recurring droughts and a declining economy. Columbus Mavhunga reports from eastern Mudzi district, one of the country’s most affected areas.

The United Nations has warned that Zimbabwe is facing another poor harvest in 2020 due to patchy rains. It compounds the problems for millions already grappling with drought conditions and the worst economic crisis in a decade. Across the country, at least 7.7 million people in urban and rural areas are severely food insecure, including over 3.8 million children who are hungry and require urgent food assistance. Now to discuss this further we are joined in studio by Save the Children South Africa’s Communications Manager, Sibusiso Khasa.

(24 Feb 2020) Zimbabwe is now one of the world’s least food-secure countries, according to the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP), with more than half of its 15 million people in need of food assistance. Their plight has become more acute in the wake of the worst drought in decades, and a run of poor farming seasons in a land that relies heavily on rain-fed agriculture.

A debilitating economic crisis that has seen annual inflation hit 500 percent – second only to Venezuela – has worsened the situation and left millions of people desperate for survival. In Mudzi, about 230 kilometres (143 miles) northeast of the capital, Harare, the capital, local residents described food security as their biggest challenge. It is worse for elderly people like 90 year-old Leah Tsiga, who has less energy and strength to seek out sources of food. For the first time in several days, she would be cooking sadza, a hardened porridge made from the staple maize meal, after receiving rations from the WFP.

Tsiga is among 1,000 people of all ages receiving monthly food rations in Nakiwa village in Mudzi district. Another villager, Queen Muperuka, said the WFP aid delivery would bring a respite, however temporary, to her hunger. “Today I am so happy to receive food,” she said. “In recent days we have been going to bed with empty stomachs.” The charity World Vision, which is working with the WFP, says the food aid targets the most vulnerable.

The WFP is assisting three and a half million people across Zimbabwe with food until April, when it’s hoped villagers will have harvested their crop, according to WFP official Claire Neville. But that’s assuming there will be anything to harvest. Neville said climate change was deepening the drought and making Zimbabwe’s food crisis much worse. Back at home having been helped to take food aid back by her neighbours, Tsiga says she sometimes goes for days without a solid meal. She picks pigweed and okra leaves growing among a faltering pearl millet crop in a small field to supplement her diet. She could have counted on her three children to support her. But like many in the country, the children can no longer be relied upon to provide a safety net for their ageing folk because they too are struggling to survive. “They all went to Harare to look for jobs. They are also struggling, so it’s just me and my cat here,” said Tsiga.
