The media-ignored genocide of white farmers throughout Africa marches on. This time, one of the last remaining tobacco growers in Zimbabwe has been murdered, most likely by Mugabe thugs:
Kobus Joubert, 67, was shot dead and his wife Mariana, 64, was assaulted by assailants who also robbed them of $10,000 (£6,300) in cash.
When attackers beat up Mrs Joubert, they also took her laptop accusing her family of being members of Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai’s Movement for Democratic Change, now in a shaky inclusive government with Mr Mugabe’s Zanu PF party…
Mr Joubert was one of the few remaining large scale tobacco growers left in Zimbabwe.
Two years ago, Mr Joubert, a former president of the Zimbabwe Tobacco Association, was attacked by militants loyal to Robert Mugabe, the Zimbabwean president,
The couple were forced to flee their home, Scottsdale farm, in the Chegutu district about 60 miles west of Harare, and set up camp in the grass alongside a national highway for several weeks.
When the police tried to move them away, the couple protested saying that they had no other home.
Meanwhile, in that same hellhole of Zimbabwe, El Presidente Robert Mugabe says he will “surrender” power if he loses in the upcoming election:
“If you lose, then you must surrender to those who have won. If you win, those who have lost must also surrender to you,” he said. “We will comply with the rules.”
This is how these people, at even the highest levels of their culture, see governance and the role of governmental power. As a tool of power, submission, and the like.
[Mugabe] spoke as opposition parties accused him and his party of seeking to extend his 33 years in power by rigging the electoral roll, intimidating voters and blocking internet access through mobile phones which many had hoped would increase the poll’s transparency.
Analysis has revealed that even an early version of this year’s electoral list included an increase in those registered of as much 48 per cent in Zanu PF-supporting areas, a rise unexplained by last year’s census.
Conversely, in Zimbabwe’s second city of Bulawayo, an MDC stronghold, the voter population declined by four per cent, another statistic not borne out by the census.
