Check out THIS ARTICLE. It got me going because I’m BIG on thoughts about Africa AND I have some second hand knowledge most don’t have because of my interest. Plus, I thought we needed a total break from THE ELECTION. Please read down the article, it’s more interesting than I think you might think it is! Here’s a bit from the link:
“Harare – Zimbabwe’s environment minister Oppah Muchinguri-Kashiri has reportedly said that the southern African country has become one of the “dirtiest countries in the region”. According to New Zimbabwe, Muchinguri-Kashiri said this while addressing a press conference in Harare.
Muchinguri-Kashiri said that although the colonial government was cruel to black people, they managed their surroundings well and knowledgeably”. She said that the situation across the country was deplorable.
“Something has gone wrong with us Zimbabweans. Zimbabweans are living dangerously. We cannot live luxuriously like this and forget that we are humans. The white person was cruel, but had vast knowledge on how to live in a community and care for its surroundings,” Machinguri-Kashiri was quoted saying.”
So, ZIMBABWE….which was Rhodesia, once a thriving bread capital of Africa, and which is now a total mess and has been, basically, since Mugabe took over, is recognizing that there’s life-threatening disease and utter filth since the colonial government, which was “cruel to black people,” as ousted.
Is it me, or do you, too, think Mugabe is “cruel to black people,”...but now they have a cruel leadership AND life-threatening illness growing out of a cesspool the people there have created for years since Whites moved out?
The article also includes “Now with Cholera, Typhoid and disease outbreaks, the blacks are starting to acknowledge it. They say they are busy turning Zimbabwe into a desert.”
The linked article’s writers is angry, that’s clear, but I’d be angry, too. South Africa was SO beautiful and safe until the White leadership was ousted and now you can barely walk on the streets of Johannesburg at night for fear of being robbed, raped or killed. Not just Whites, but everyone is threatened with that awful development. I say “development” but it’s not a recent development, this has gone on for years now.
Mandela is known as a huge hero, the socialist supposed champion of Blacks in Africa, who served so many years and became an even bigger hero after that, but, while I believe Africa should be in the hands of its larger population, that being Black Africans, nothing was done on their part to do slow and intelligent transition and this has ALWAYS BOTHERED ME SO MUCH, hence my publishing an article I happened to see today which hasn’t much to do with America. It’s a pet peeve of MINE.
I knew White Africans who had big working farms with huge populations of Blacks working for them. When they were told they had to let them free, do you know most of their Blacks didn’t want TO GO FREE? They loved the Fletchers and begged them to let them STAY. THOSE BLACKS UNDERSTOOD they were SAFE, DISEASE-FREE, HAPPY and could raise healthy children in and around the Fletcher plantation. They were taught by observing for themselves how to run a property well.
This is what Africa needed…….to slowly let the Whites teach them, help them, stop whatever discrimination there had been…thrive! Instead, when I lived in Paris, I lived near many embassies and would routinely see very rich Black ambassadors and their staffs dressed very expensively, driven by chauffeurs in Rolls Royce’s, etc……….while their people suffered badly back at home.
I’m not sure most of you will be reading down this far, so I hesitate to publish this piece but, for those of you who are, this isn’t a “All Blacks are bad and can’t even take care of themselves”, Not at ALL……The purpose of this article is to point out the horrible treatment OF Blacks BY Blacks who DO NOT want the best for their people but pushed out the Whites, many of whom HAD mistreated Black Africa for years….but could have been deployed to HELP as independence came, as segregation was eliminated (something good that Mandela DID do)………
One more thing: I heard a missionary who lived in Zimbabwe when Mugabe took over….she said he’ll declare a holiday from work…Oh BOY!…then he closes ALL gas stations down so nobody can get anywhere. THIS is “Black Leadership” in the once thriving country of Rhodesia, now the DUMP called Zimbabwe.
