White farmers to blame


0

Swedish thriller writer Henning Mankell says white farmers must shoulder the blame for the plight of Zimbabwe so Robert Mugabe should not be painted as the sole villain of the piece. “In the early 1980s, every year Mugabe went and talked to white farmers and said, ‘It’s necessary for us to sit down and talk about the farms here’. And the reaction he got from white farmers was absolutely none. He tried year after year after year, and the only thing he was met by was arrogance. In the end, it became a very bad situation.”
