Once Africa's breadbasket, now its Africa's basket case because its 83 year old dictator Robert Mugabe has destroyed the country. There's no eggs, no bread, no butter, no milk, no meat, no wheat, not even the mealie meal that corn porridge they eat. Got nothing. 1/2 of Zimbabwe's population is malnourished. Starvation threatens millions. Mugabe downsized the army because he can't feed the troops. the social welfare office doesn't have paper to type up a hospital referral. hospitals don't even have basic intravenous fluids.
Zimbabwe's life expectancy in 1990, 60 years old, today it's 37, lowest in the world. In the capital, Harare, the drinking water is siphoned from a sewer system so people are suffering from dysentery and cholera. AIDS is rampant. A doctor in Bulawayo, the country's second largest city said 80% of people in some rural areas has AIDS and 90% in some miltary barracks. The disease kills 3,500 people a week, and 25% of Zimbabwe's children are AIDS orphans.
It's so bad, a mass migration of four million Zimbabweans out of a population of only 13 million have fled Zimbabwe to South Africa. Johannesburg's government says the Zimbabwean migrants include doctors, accountants, teachers, health inspectors, geologists, mathematicians, engineers and experts in computers and aviation all sleeping on the floor.
If the Chinese Communist Party wanted to end the misery and suffering in Zimbabwe can do it like that. CCP gives Mugabe chinese clothes, shoes, buses, passenger planes and jet fighters. One phone call from Jintao to Mugabe can get Mugabe to retire. If the CCP doesn't get Mugabe to retire and allow free elections in march 2008, boycott the beijing olympics, it's the only way to help Zimbabwe's people.
