Zimbabwe’s White Farmers Face Threats of New Evictions

Farai Mutsaka, Yahoo! News, January 27, 2015

Most of Zimbabwe’s white farmers were stripped of their land in often violent evictions that started in 2000. Now the remaining white farmers are on edge because of threats of new evictions linked to the country’s long-running political turmoil.

Mandi Chimene, a newly appointed provincial governor for Manicaland province, said at a rally this past weekend that she had evicted white farmers from 12 farms in the Headlands district alone, claiming they were being protected by the former vice president’s faction. Joice Mujuru was ousted from the ruling party congress in December after falling out of favor with the president and his wife.

Another newly appointed governor, Joe Biggie Matiza of Mashonaland East province, said he will take similar action by the end of this month.

However, human rights advocate and political analyst Gabriel Shumba said that linking the evictions to the Mujuru faction “is just political expediency by those seeking to evict them.” Shumba said, “White farmers are caught up because they are in possession of an asset that is in demand.”

Douglas Mombeshora, the lands minister, recently said black farmers can enter into joint venture with partners of other races. But vice president Emmerson Mnangagwa later delivered a conflicting message, warning of more evictions of white farmers. President Robert Mugabe has often spoken against joint farming partnerships between blacks and whites.

There are fewer than 300 white farmers out of the original total of 4,500, according to the Commercial Farmers Union. {snip}

    Why are they even there? I would make it to North Africa then Spain. Sell your land and get some guns, and then get in a truck and leave.Who cares if you lose everything you will anyways,and then your life.

    • phorning

      I doubt a white family would be able to make the extremely long drive from Zimbabwe to Algeria or Morocco without some major challenges. They should be able to fly if they can afford it. Can we assume most of the farmers who have stayed in Zimbabwe are too poor to leave?

      • newscomments70

        I read that anyone who had the means has already left. The younger, college-educated, urban folks moved to the UK and Australia/NZ. They used to escape to South Africa, but that now sounds like a sad joke.

      • Americaandthewestshouldbewhite

        I have friends that came from Rhodesia to the US via South africa and they told me that the white people left back have nowhere else to go and no white country will give them assylum because they are not considered refugees because of the color of their skin. So they are forced to stay there and rough it out.

        • evilsandmich

          Screw that, it’s not just Mexicans that can play our immigration laws like player piano; how do we get them out of there?

        • SentryattheGate

          Yet the US accepts HIV positives and domestic abuse “victims” as refugees (probably most, if not all,non-white)!

        • IBWHITE

          All they need is a plane ticket to Mexico where they can stroll across the border to the United States. Maybe we could start a fund to help them get out of that hellhole.

          • Americaandthewestshouldbewhite

            Yes, LOL. Unfortunately my Rhodesian friends voted for Obama twice thinking he would offer them better healthcare. Now they regret it. They thought that the white democrats will not let him destroy America. Now they realize that they were wrong.

    • TheMaskedUnit

      You may be saying the same thing about N. America soon enough. Nobody survives diversity.

    • Bon, From the Land of Babble

      Sell to whom?

      No money is being offered for the land, it is a land grab without compensation.

      • newscomments70

        It’s the same in South Africa. Squatters are taking over properties. The government allows it and prohibits the farmers from fighting back. It’s impossible to sell the land. The ANC offers promissory notes for the properties, but they never make good on them. Some white farmers are moving to Mozambique and other African countries. Those governments allow them to lease the land (not own) and cultivate it. As soon as they start to make a profit, they will probably be thrown off.

      • SentryattheGate

        The British, I understand, had given lots of money (I forgot how much?) to Zimbabwe to buy out the white farmers, but (surprise!) the black elites kept the money and confiscated the land anyway, often murdering the farmers. The “good old” UN, the peacemakers that they aren’t, let it happen. Then when Zimbabweans started starving, the UN Food Program came in to feed them! Another reason to get the US out of the UN, and the UN out of the US!

        • Bon, From the Land of Babble

          The South African government has made laws which deny all survival rights to White South Africans: This small White minority is denied food-aid, land rights, employment because of “BEE” laws and denied public housing

          Black South Africans, however, are entitled to child-benefits, surviving-spouse pensions and even free school-fees. None of those benefits are granted to any Afrikaners who apply for them.

          15-million black South African receive monthly food-aid for themselves and their children through the US-Aid program which is administered by the virulently anti-White ANC.

          Hundreds of Afrikaans-language places of education have been closed down or anglicised by the ANC-regime.

          According to Section C of the 1948 UN Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, genocide is defined as:

          ( c ) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part.

          Unless one is White

          The UN is an anti-White criminal 3rd world organization that supports, promotes, aids and abets White Genocide.

          The UN headquarters in Manhattan should be razed and the ground underneath salted – and public toilets should be erected where it once stood.

          • SentryattheGate

            Apparently you too realize what a threat the UN is to us! I’d like to write an article for amren re. my husband’s Peace Corps experience in Liberia, his experience w/USAID, my discussion with the head of the UN Food Program, and an anti-immigration activist’s petition to the UN re. genocide of whites. The US will be constructing a second UN building soon,maybe already started, in NY.

    • Cheri Rodriguez

      What’s amazing is that in all these years (since the 1970s!) not one White individual, mercenary group, suicide bomber, etc., has gone in and tried to kill or kidnap Mugabe.

      • IstvanIN

        Good point.

    • LHathaway

      I suspect the government of Zimbabwe has a different definition than we do of ‘sell’. They have a different method of making land purchases.

    • Ethan Allen

      First, pull up every pipe, cut every wire, burn down every structure, kill all the livestock, destroy every piece of machinery and pour concrete down the well.

  • Truthseeker

    Any self-hating, braindead White liberal who thinks being ruled by Blacks would be superior to being ruled by Whites needs to read this article. Blacks don’t care how fairly we’re treated. They put their people first.

    • Publius Pompilius Quietus

      Keep in mind that the Western media was fatalistically obsessing about the petty rivalry in Crimea when this law was made in Zimbabwe. In other words, we’re supposed to care more about a geopolitical microcosm than Zimbabwe’s plunder of our white kin.

      Sounds like a mob hit man. What an insult to the mob.

    • Tarczan

      Plenty of those whites voted for O. Twice.

    • newscomments70

      This goes beyond placing their people first. This is outright genocide.

      • Bon, From the Land of Babble

        It is genocide.

        Supported and sanctioned by the anti-White Western media and anti-White Western governments.

        This is what they plan to do to ALL of us Whites.

        • John Smith

          Nor in the USA, based on what we’ve seen recently.

        • Yancy Derringer

          “Honeymoon.” Idiots. Whites ruled for how many decades?

    • John Smith

      They only put some of their people first and screw the rest, who seem to prefer this more than even being fairly prosperous, but lower status inhabitants of white rule.

  • D.B. Cooper

    I can’t really feel sorry for a bunch of people who should’ve seen the writing on the wall 10 years ago. Meanwhile, you should ruin the careers of any white government employee who is allowing black people from Zimbabwe to be allowed to be granted asylum here in the USA.

    • benvad

      It’s going to happen here! We’re guilty for supporting those commie sand going against the pioneers of Southern Africa.

      The Amish troublemakers such as joe slovo did his best to uplift and train the savages against our people. China made summer to help clear the land of the only resistance to ensure future sources of natural resources. Mugabes of the area are nothing but pawns for the PRC.

  • Wing-nut.

    Doesn’t the average farm worker in Zimbabwe earn $48 trillion per hour?

    • SentryattheGate

      Which probably equivalent to 25 cents!

  • David Ashton

    Take no thought for the morrow. Just grab what others have made, and then beg for more.

  • Tarczan

    I wonder how many years South Africa is behind this happening there?

    • Tom_in_Miami

      It seems to me that it is already happening in SA.

    • Bon, From the Land of Babble

      I wonder how many years the United States is behind this happening here?

      We will at some point in the near future be out-numbered and out-voted by non-Whites who have been primed to loathe, despise, hate us and wish us DEAD.

      Here’s are two graphics of mugabe’s crib:

      • Tarczan

        The place was obviously built by whites, probably foreign contractors. You’d think he would at least hire some of the local “craftsmen”.

        • bbshaw

          If you lived in Zimbabwe, would you hire local craftsmen and designers?

      • SentryattheGate

        Where’s the African art, and pride in his culture? They want everything from the whites (their technology, their architecture, their art,etc), except for white people!

  • Ograf

    My only question is Why are they staying in South Africa? If they haven’t seen the writing on the wall by now they may be dead before they wake up.

    • John Smith

      Probably ran/running out of resources. They won’t get any favorable immigration status in many countries, especially if broke. The US would rather import third world savages instead.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    “Government yesterday vowed to grab all farms owned by the remaining white former commercial farmers and ruled out joint ventures involving whites.”

    Imagine if the races were reversed – there would be calls from the UN and West for a military invasion – as Zim was threatened with once before:

    Ian Smith traveled to Washington, D.C., to ask for help. He wasn’t asking for foreign aid; he merely hoped to persuade President Carter to call off the economic sanctions and diplomatic pressure being applied by the U.S. State Department, the UN, and Britain in an attempt to force Rhodesia to accept rule by the Mugabe/Nkomo terrorist forces. Carter flatly refused to see Smith.

    Henry Kissinger, meanwhile, did meet with Smith in Geneva. It has been suggested by African observers that Smith was threatened with a military invasion of Rhodesia backed by the UN, the United States, and the U.K.

    To all Whites left in Zim:

    Burn the buildings to the ground, set the fields on fire, destroy all farm equipment and sow the land with salt – flee Zim and let ‘em starve.

    Let the country descend into inevitable violence, civil war, anarchy and chaos

    No matter what happens, Whites will be blamed.

    There is no future for you there.

    Because you are White, Not one Western government or the Western media care or ever will.

    You will not be offered sanctuary or refugee status, although blacks will.

    • benvad

      Scorched earth like the Huns did

  • connorhus

    I can understand the White Farmers staying on their land even after 90% of their peers have been removed and all hope seems lost. But seriously at this point they shouldn’t be staying and farming, they should be staying and fighting.

    I know it’s easy to be an armchair warrior and all but I sincerely hope that if similar circumstances ever comes to the good old US of A I will be able to take my own advice and go out swinging if nothing else.

    • John Smith

      They have no momentum with so few left. Custer’s Last Stand II.

    • Sick of it

      They don’t have the will to fight. There are people here who do.

      • connorhus

        I agree I suppose but what sapped their will was being offered up for sacrifice by the White Multi-Culters of the Western Nations.

        • Yancy Derringer

          The numbers of white farmers have ticked down, one by one, from 4500 to 300, by way of harrassment, attack, torture, and murder. There is a list of Mugabe family, friends, and cronies simply granted title to these farms, and when one’s name is next on the list he begins his eviction proceeding, first by informing, and then by arriving at night with pickup trucks of thugs, enough to scare off any remaining employees, and those thugs smash their way into the main house… There are many photos.

          • connorhus

            I certainly do not dispute anything you said. Here is what I do not understand though. What you describe is not new really. Even my own ancestors were forced off their land a little over 150 years ago by Unionist general orders and what did they do? They fought. They lost but as a family they did not go out quietly. They were badly outnumbered, many of them turned into criminals themselves and the ones who fought rarely came back. They are regarded as little more than blood thirsty fiends even today in some circles, especially in Kansas, but they fought.

            Why are the Whites there not fighting?

  • bbshaw

    Why should the blacks there worry? They know that when, due to lack of whites, Zimbabwe can no longer feed themselves (or at least their black elite), the U.S. congress will vote to send the produce of American white farmers to them. This will give them the energy to produce more children. See, there’s no problem.

    • SentryattheGate

      The UN (much of it funded by the US) already has their World Food Program in Zimbabwe, years ago. Meanwhile, they allow the massacres!

  • dd121

    The msm doesn’t give a damn about whites being murdered in Africa. Rest assured that they won’t make this a national story.

    • Mary

      They literally would not care a whit (and might actually be delighted) if every single White in the whole African continent met a similar end.

      • dd121

        Very true. It’s odd because the elites lost sight of the fact that they’re white too. Guess they think that inoculates from the black wrath. It doesn’t.

      • Sisu

        And you can add Europe, N America and Australia to the list that the self loathing/hating MSN would love to see every white murdered or eliminated from. Oh wait a minute, they are already working on that through multiculturalism and migration without boarders programs.

    • Yancy Derringer

      They didn’t make it a story at 4499, or 4000, or 3000, or 2000, or 1000, or 500. There are 300 left. It’s almost over.

  • Samuel Hathaway

    When the last white farmer is evicted and when there is no food growing to feed the burgeoning black population, well, I say, too freaking bad. You all could have allied with the white farmers and saved your agricultural industry, but you decided that racial power and racial humiliation of whites who fed you was more important.

    • LexiconD1

      They’ve already passed this point decades ago.

  • IstvanIN

    The real crime isn’t the Africans, they are what they are, the bigger criminals are the Anglo-Sphere nations who forced Rhodesia into black rule and then, after it became more than evident that black rule was a disaster on so many levels, refused to take in the White victims of black rule. The UK, pre-Obama US, Australia, Canada and New Zealand are shameful accessories to murder.

    About ten years I read an article about an Australian MP who wanted to offer sanctuary to Rhodesian victims of Mugabe. One of his fellow White MPs said that would only be acceptable if black Zimbabweans were also given refugee status. Sorry, I don’t have a reference.

    • John Smith

      Ian Smith deserves a statue taller than the Statue of Liberty.

      • IstvanIN

        Amazing how so many post-war “racists” were both correct and prophetic.

  • John Smith

    Typical black/African response – to continue policies that destroy the economy so long as they benefit a few black cronies and stick it to Whitey.

  • LexiconD1

    I didn’t know their were any left? I thought Mugabe stole all their land years ago and gave it away to incompetent blacks…I know the breadbasket of Africa is no longer producing it’s own food. Read several articles stating they were back to eating one another.

    • Ella

      Why should they? Christians are probably giving food to them for free or extremely reduced prices. (sarcasm)

    • Bill Moore

      Hello LexiconD1,

      I read an article where the Africans in Rhodesia have stopped wearing clothing.

      Why do we insist on treating these Africans as if they were human? In the USA in Africa.

      Bill Moore

      • Charles Martel

        Please! People in Zimbabwe – white and black – continue to wear clothes.

  • De Doc

    One last pogrom to get rid of the remaining lot, I’m guessing. They need to get out post haste and let Zimbabwe turn the rest of its productive land into fallow fields occupied by low IQ reprobates, who can’t figure out how to even do subsistence farming.

  • Reynardine

    Instead of criticizing them for their inability to escape this (which may not be any fault of their own), perhaps we should use our White sense of compassion and help them out.

    Is there a charity for white Rhodesian farmers to help them escape that hell hole?

    • Sisu

      Maybe we could ask Bono and a few other top rock/pop groups to put on a “We are a White World” concert to benefit Rhodesian farmers.

      • Americaandthewestshouldbewhite

        LOL we can only dream about something that will never become a reality under these conditions.

  • FozzieT

    Wait. I thought that White Americans were the big bad racists. White privilege and all. Where is the White farmer affirmative-action program in the majority-black Zimbabwe?

  • In other words, the same sophisticated simian reasoning as “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot!”

  • MBlanc46

    I feel deeply for these people trying to hang onto their heritage, but there comes a time when you have to just get the devil out of Rhodesia.

  • ncpride

    The only bright light to this story is that all the commenters on the original article seem to be hard core race realists who absolutely know the score about blacks.

  • Americaandthewestshouldbewhite

    The ANC in South Africa was supported by the Semites like Joe Slovo, Helen Suzman, and Harry Oppenheimer. Even though Comrade Nelson Mandela was in prison, when eh was released he had 30 million rand in his bank account courtesy of Harry.

  • I think Zimbabwe is on the right track here, but I also think it should be a felony to send any food or other aid to the country, or accept blacks from the place as refugees.

  • Preparation HBomb

    What kind of white person would move to freakin’ AFRICA in the first place??? I mean, I’m sorry they’re losing money and all, but really — what could one expect?!? To be indignant or even surprised at getting evicted (or worse) by blacks is pretty naive, in my view. Whites don’t belong in Africa. Just give it to the blacks and let it go. True, the Muslims will go in and convert (forcibly if need be) all the natives, but they would in any case, whether whites were there or not. I say cut your losses, get out however you can, and go to a decent continent….

    • Yancy Derringer

      These white people were born there.

    • Americaandthewestshouldbewhite

      The whites there would like to get out, but most of them have no money or no white country will accept them as refugees because they are white. if they were black, Oh my, they will get the red carpet treatment and be housed in tax payer paid houses with food, medical care, school and transport.

    • The Dude

      I actually wish more whites would immigrate to Africa to make something decent the natives can revolve around. If enough whites are there, especially wealthy ones, blacks wouldn’t need to emigrate to Europe or the white colonies.

      To paraphrase Bush 43, if we don’t contain them there, they’ll follow us here.

      • Sisu

        I don’t think you quite understand blacks. They will destroy like locusts anything whites try to build and then move on to the next victim. They are simply not capable of maintaining a civilized society as whites do. There is no need for blacks to emigrate to Europe to begin with regardless of circumstances in Africa. Blacks/ Muslims are in the process of destroying that continent also. Don’t you find it remarkable that poverty, chaos and crime follow blacks everywhere they are to be found?

  • Clyde Weathers

    It wouldn’t take much more than a platoon of Special Forces to ‘neutralize’ Mudgarbage and co. Hoping it happens.

    Would like to see all farmers leave Rhodesia tomorrow and the international community prohibit exports of any kind to MudGarbage land. After the negroids kill each other off the White Community can move in and recolonize Africa.

    • The Dude

      If we ever recolonize that continent again, then we should have one word in mind: sterilization. Otherwise the nightmare would never end.

      • Clyde Weathers

        Agreed

  • LiberalismFailed

    Why haven’t the remaining whites simply take over a slice of the country and secede?

  • Americaandthewestshouldbewhite

    Britian and Italy as far as i know allows kids and grankids of those immigrants born to the immigrant parents to come back, but not from the great grankids’s generation onwards. So it is not possible for them to come back to their ancestral land. Tony Blair in the 90s put a stop to white people from coming back unless they had UK passports. So you see it is their own people that are screwing them up in the name of PCness.There were some people that asked for UK passports in th 60s when Rhodesia became independent, but they were not givn because tBritain considered the white people who wanted to keep Rhodesia under Ian smith a white controlled country as rebels. It was prime minister Howard macMillian that screwed them. The Rhodesians anted to make Queen Elizabeth ‘Queen of Rhodesia’ but she refused.

  • Americaandthewestshouldbewhite

    Well the differnece is that she is married to the white guy and she became a citize. So she is able to sponsor her family from the Phillipines. For them it takes several eyars to come here because the Phillipines was considered a American colony from 1898 to 1945. So people born during that period can come easily as US nationals but not those born after that. That is why it takes many years. Eventually they do get to come. The only way you can advise your Rhodesian family to come is by applying for the Diversity Visa Lottery. Unfortunatley more non whites come through that rather than whites. Some terrorists have come through that before. They wanted to scrap it out, but that did not happen. Research DV Lottery and see why that system is harming America. Black politicians like Sheila Jackson and John Conyers who are black did not want to scrap it out because they felt black africans cannot come the normal way. Shelia Jackson wanted to increase the number from 55,000 a year to 110,000 a year, but luckily it did not get increased. Can you imagine double the non whites coming in and ending up on welfare.

  • SentryattheGate

    After giving a blind eye to the massacres of (productive) white farmers, the UN brought in their Food Program to feed the starving blacks.

    Just substitute the name of any American urban center for Zimbabwe. Then cut and paste the news. ‘Police called at 0900 to the free cheese line because of a riot. They arrived at 1750 and took 12 youths into custody. In more city news, ten people were killed at a house party gone bad last night. 25 were injured in a stampede when gunfire erupted at 0315 at 7734 MLK Jr Blvd. No suspects. In more news, a domestic dispute resulted in a near fatal head rimming with a baseball bat at 666 James Brown Blvd. last night. Urina McKenzie attacked ‘Muffins’ Melt when Muffins twisted her arm as she reached for his EBT card. She told our reporter ‘ Dat niggah owes me muny’. And finally McDonald’s restaurant is celebrating Black Geography Month by replacing French Fries with sweet potato fries. Thanks for watching’

    • evilsandmich

      By “house party” you mean birthday party, but yeah. There was also an amusing story locally here where a youth pushed his girlfriend out of a moving car and when the police questioned him he politely thought to use a fabricated name for the girlfriend since there were warrants out for her arrest.

  • KyraNelson

    Going out on a limb here, but there are a ton of SA people on Internet forums and even a yahoo group about Clivia which is a highly collectible plant from SA. The best breeders are Boers from SA. Perhaps you could make some kind of connection through one of those sites. Be discreet though. I have never seen any kind of political post on any of those sites. You could just look for the Boer names and send a private message perhaps. Also wondering if these farmers are inclined to run away?

  • newscomments70

    “They must not realize that white privilege is what makes crops grow; they’ll probably sit there waiting and starving wishing they hadn’t killed their meal ticket-just kidding they mull over nothing beyond what’s in sight.” That’s not always true. Recently, a white female Rhodeisan wrote about her recent trip to Zimbabwe. Sometimes black locals would follow here and ask, “You have job, boss? I have no food for babies. White man leave, no job. You come back , give us job?”

  • SentryattheGate

    Well, the US pays for ~25% of the UN’s budget, which may also cover the Food program? We probably provide much of the food aid (c/o USAID) because we have such a large agricultural output. Also from Bon from the Land of Babble above: 15-million black South African receive monthly food-aid for themselves and their children through the US-Aid programwhich is administered by the virulently anti-White ANC.
