    The excuses are that black people can't grow food by themselves, and they need white people to plant food for them!!! The fallacy that nobody can survive without white supremacy….or white supremacy won't leave black people alone…with sanctions

    Its hard to feel sorry for people who said nothing when whites where murdered on their farms or made destitute themselves when property and livelihoods where taken. All of these people where likely celebrating when that happened and they can now reap their rewards.

    Insha'ALLAH Zimbabwe will be an Islamic country in the next decade. It will happen, whether by choice or by force, but for sure. After that they'll prosper, just like Algeria and Morocco.
    Complete Sharia must be inforced and Islam should be the only recognised official state religion in Zimbabwe.
