Mugabe Forbids Food Growing In Backyards - Millions Starving
Jan Lamprecht - 6/23/2005

Just as Eddie Cross of the opposition MDC predicted a short while back, Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe has wiped out homes, and even bulldozed grocery stores - in mid-winter. Eddie Cross estimated two million Blacks will become homeless as a result of the dictator’s actions. The UN estimates that this campaign, which has taken only 1 month, has already resulted in 1.5 million Blacks losing their homes. As unbelievable as this may sound, at the time when Zimbabwe needs to import 1.2 million tons of food to support its population, Mugabe has banned people from growing food in their own yards in urban areas to feed their own families. It appears to me that Mr. Mugabe wants to be in complete control of the food supply so that he can starve people at will.
