*****UGRENT ALERT****MIKE CAMPBELL LOSES THE BATTLE AGAINST MUGABE

THUGS

Mike Campbell, 76, one of the remaining white farmers, was threatened at his farm in Chegutu by a man calling himself Chimambira (Landmine in Shona), who was flanked by supporters, according to Ben Freeth, Mr Campbell’s son-in-law. Mr Freeth said that the man kicked in the kitchen door, forcing Mr Campbell to stand guard with his revolver for three hours in an attempt to defend his land.
The next day, Mr Freeth said, Chimambira returned and gave Mr Campbell and his wife, Angela, two hours to leave. Yesterday men could be seen loading up mangoes produced by the farm and taking them into town for sale in the market.
In June last year the couple and Mr Freeth, 39, were beaten by members of Mr Mugabe’s militia. The family have been at the forefront of the fight against the drive by Mr Mugabe to seize land owned by white farmers in Zimbabwe.

Yesterday seven of Mr Campbell’s workers appeared in court on charges of kidnapping supporters of Chimambira.

They claimed to have been beaten by the raiding party and by police, with one of them suffering a fractured skull. Earlier the workers had formed a cordon around the farm, telling the henchmen: “We are not going to allow what happened last year happen again.” “They really were encouraged by the new agreement, that the rule of law would be fairly applied,” Mr Freeth said. Mr Mugabe and his ministers have taken refuge in a clause in the agreement stating that “land reform is irreversible”.

They claim that the violence is caused by white farmers resisting the documentation that gives Zanu (PF) supporters rights over property. 07 April 2009The intensity of the recent wave of farm attacks sweeping the country has been taken to new levels this week, with the wife of a Chiredzi farmer being used as bait by local police to lure her husband out of hiding.
Teresa Warth was arrested on her Wasara Ranch in Chiredzi on Monday, and was told by police that she was being used as 'bait'. Her husband Gary has been in hiding for six weeks and police hoped her arrest would flush him out of hiding to face arrest and prosecution. Teresa was forced to leave behind her frail parents-in-law as well as their animals, including three tame elephant and a herd of cattle.


The Warth's property has come under brutal attack before and many of their animals have been slaughtered by land invaders, in an act of cruel intimidation.


Teresa was later released on Monday night but is expected in court on Wednesday to face, as yet, unknown charges.Gary Warth is just one of many farmers that have been forced into hiding as a result of the fresh wave of attacks aimed at removing the remaining commercial farmers off their land.

The land invasions and fast-track prosecution of farmers began in earnest in February, after Attorney General Johannes Tomana instructed local police and magistrates to support the attacks.
In all cases, court orders and other legal protections on the farms are being knowingly ignored, and with the police supporting the attacks, farmers have no assistance or protection. It was also known that arrest warrants had been issued for the farmers.

"There is only one thing necessary for evil to triumph over good - and that is for a few good men to do nothing". Edmond Burke 1. That 80% of all commercial farms have been purchased after 1980, when the Republic of Zimbabwe was proclaimed.

All these farms, at sale, had to have a certificate of no interest for land resettlement from the Mugabe – ZANU PF government.2.
That more than enough land was purchased after 1980 on a willing seller, willing buyer basis, for the ZANU PF resettlement initiative, funded by the West.

That most of this land only went as far as Mugabe and his cronies, where it promptly fell into ruin and disuse. 3.

That only 28% of all the land in Zimbabwe is owned by commercial farmers of all races. And most importantly, that commercial farming is the backbone of the Zimbabwean economy, and as such, these farms have to be big.

In any developed nation with a growing urban population, most of the land will inevitably be owned by farmers who supply food to the conurbations. Why the emphasis on skin colour anyway by the media?
As mentioned above, most commercial farms were bought after 1980 on the open market on commercial mortgauges from the banks. These farmers were making a commitment to the nation, to provide it with jobs, forex and food.

Where else in the world have so few made such a difference to so many? Or at least they would have done had not the corrupt government of Mugabe creamed off the forex to line their own pockets, and lived like kings, whilst their peoples standard of living went into a nose dive and the economy went wheels up.

The only reason for the media to keep playing on the fact that most commercial farmers are white, is that poison of political correctness once again, and this time the bit which says that there is no such thing as a white African.

By playing on the skin colour, they excuse Mugabe’s dispossession of a racial minority and aid and abet his oppression of this minority.

Would they be so accomodating if a political party in the UK proclaimed third generation blacks to be foreigners and not British, and withdrew their right to British citizenship? Would they be so accomodating to a government in the UK which seized Asian corner shops because the land they were on had belonged to whites at some point, despite the shops having been legally bought on the free market?

Would they be so casual if these dispossessed third generation Asians, were beaten and abused and denied their citizenship rights?
There is a definite contradiction here, a contradiction based on the worst form of racism, which is all to familiar in politically correct thinking.
The contradiction seems to be for example, that it is perfectly fine to be black and British, yet not to be white and Zimbabwean, or indeed, white and African! All this Western hand wringing and duplicity has caused so much suffering in Zimbabwe, not only to the oppressed and brutalized white minority, but to anybody who does not tow the Mugabe and ZANU PF line.

Once again the West stands by, neutered, whilst an evil African tyrant beggers his nation, and lives high on the hog at the same time.


The civilized nations of the West should hang their heads in abject shame, at such spineless and cynical acceptance of a brutal dictator of the worst kind.

A man who already has the blood of thousands of innocent Ndebele on his hands from the genocide of the early 1980’s, another disgusting and barbaric act overlooked by the West, because it happened in black Africa.

When will the Western world finally throw off this yoke of political correctness, and treat black African tyrants like any other, instead of like naughty children, a racist attitude in itself? When will we begin to see these monsters sitting in the dock at The Hague, answering for their crimes against humanity?

Meanwhile, a once prosperous and advanced nation, now drowning in an AIDS epidemic, is collapsing into starvation, social chaos and economic ruin.

Doubtless when this regime has gone, and a new crew are installed at the helm, the begging bowl will once again be out for foreign aid, and a few more numbered accounts will be opened in Swiss banks.
Some things at least in Africa are more predictable than the rains.
