    We can only hope that Zimbabwe recovers, the citizens of that country will determine its’ future.

    If we had a chance to subjected Americans or British citizens to this kind of economy and political system you probably wouldn’t see anything alive or intact….they would kill each-other and destroy everything in the process of survival.
    Friend of mine here in Boston told me a joke: What is the difference btw. me and homeless man he asked?….three paychecks is the answer…
    Zimbabwean nation passed the test of resilience and faith. They can expect only better times when present politicians leave the scene..

    P.S. Very, very white European gentlemen.

    which current politicians? ,mdc,zanu or those who are actually and truthfully responsible(britain and friends) for the mess.

    O.K. We can all agree that colonialism was horrid and that Africans should be in charge of their own destiny. However fear, hunger, oppression, nepotism and a lack of human decency are the qualities that exist today in Zimbabwe. Where will it all end and when will all Zimbabweans have the opportunity to live a full and productive life?
