FOR the life of me I cannot understand why the media keeps telling its audience that Zimbabwe is the fastest collapsing economy out of a war situation.
The article “How land policy in Zim led to ruin “, (Zimbabwe Independent<
/I>, July 21), perpetuates this myth by saying “it is shrinking faster than any other country that is not at war.”
Didn’t President Mugabe declare the 3rd Chimurenga? Didn’t he appoint a war cabinet? Why are these matters being ignored?
The truth is that President Mugabe declared war on the people of Zimbabwe. Zimbabwe is in a war situation. There are casualties everywhere and that includes both people and the economy.
Why does the media remain so blind?
