JUSTICE? A WORD YET TO ENTER THE VOCABULARY OF SOUTHERN AFRICA?

Mike Campbell – the white Zimbabwean farmer who took President Robert Mugabe to court in 2007 over his programme of land seizures – has died. When the thug mugabe began encouraging the illegal seizure of white-owned farms, Campbell’s property was occupied by a group of so-called “war veterans”. Instead of capitulating, Campbell took his case to the region’s highest court, the Southern African Development Community (SADC) Tribunal which condemned the seizures as “racist” and theft on a grand scale. It ruled that the redistribution programme was discriminatory and was not being implemented according to the rule of law. However, two days before the ruling, Mr Campbell, his wife and his son-in-law were kidnapped by militants and savagely tortured. He never fully recovered from the beatings. Eventually a member of the Mugabe government led an invasion of the farm, destroyed the buildings and evicted the local workers. Campbell’s story was made into an award-winning documentary, Mugabe and the White African, which was shot secretly and succeeded in highlighting the effects of Mugabe’s policy on the country’s once prosperous agricultural industry.

  1. Yes…and it does not stop there. Have you heard or read anything about Julius Malema? This brat with his uneducated following is stirring up so much hatred toward the white population in South Africa, to the extent that I can actually see a civil war breaking out in the near future. Heave help all white and South Africa should he come to power.
