Mugabe Punishing Zimbabwe with Starvation

It is now clear that Robert Mugabe lost the election in Zimbabwe. This disturbing report raises the question of whether part of his response is to punish Zimbabwe with starvation. Not only is he engaging in his old tactics of driving farm owners off their land, his goons are intentionally destroying food production. There’s also this report:

In Masvingo province, starving pro-MDC villagers in Zaka West were forced to stand and watch while officials driving a government truck delivering maize made sure the only people who received it were accredited Zanu-PF supporters.

It certainly wouldn’t be the first time a Communist used starvation as a tool of governance.

Election workers are targets of Mugabe’s thugs as well. Two have been arrested for undercounting Mugabe’s vote. Yeah, right. Others have been brutally beaten. I guess they didn’t count correctly, either.
