EXCELLENT: 8 million starving blacks: Zimbabwe imports corn as catastrophic hunger looms

[This delights me. The population of the country is 13 million. 40% of them cannot live inside their own independent country because … no food, no jobs, etc. This is now about 10 years after destroying the white farmers. In effect, given that a huge chunk of the black population lives outside the country, this means that virtually EVERYONE INSIDE ZIMBABWE IS STARVING. 

DO NOT DONATE ANYTHING TO AFRICA. 

I like it. Excellent. Jan]

As many as eight million people are suffering from hunger in Zimbabwe.

Facing catastrophic hunger, Zimbabwe will import corn from Mexico, Ukraine and neighbouring South Africa to help feed as many as eight million of its citizens — over half the population — after drought withered crops last year and threatens to do the same in 2020.

President Emmerson Mnangagwa announced the imports Friday, while cleaning litter in the streets of Kuwadzana, an impoverished township on Harare’s western city limits.

“With the difficulty of things now, the industry ministry is looking at adding cooking oil, salt, bread and soap to the list of subsidised items for consumers,” Mnangagwa said. The government would withdraw trading licenses from retailers over-charging for cornmeal, the country’s staple food, he said.

Zimbabwe consumes about 2.2 million metric tons of corn a year for humans and farm animals.

The World Food Programme said December 31 that it plans to feed at least four million of Zimbabwe’s estimated eight million hungry this year, but said the international community needs to step up with cash donations because it hasn’t raised the money yet. Typically, aid agencies in Zimbabwe provide cash to consumers so they can buy food, because it’s logistically easier and more cost-effective.

The USAID-funded Famine Early Warning Network System, known as Fewsnet, said in December the drought that scorched Zimbabwe’s crops last year looks set to continue into 2020. If that happens, it’ll leave poor Zimbabweans scratching for food until at least March 2021 — and with about 90% of adults outside formal work, most people face poverty.

    Good news
    Now we just need a little Ebola to help alleviate the suffering & pain.
    The only reason these things are in their millions is because of the stupid white man.
    White man growing food so they can make money, while the noble savage grows in numbers to kill you & kick you out.
    I wonder what the gov her will think? Nothing!
    Same communists, different country.
    Its a complete success, they are starving now. This is what communism does.

    “about 90% of adults outside formal work” – wow, what a bunch of useless eaters!

    I guess their only value is to crush whites out of existence. In any event, not one cent to these wretches.

    Also, I wonder if the food shortage is less due to drought, and more to do with black farmers’ incompetence? Wonder if apartheid seems so bad now?
