When will Zim's unemployment rate reach 80 pct plus one?

An estimated 80 percent of Zimbabweans don't have jobs in what used to be called the bread basket of southern Africa. It makes you wonder when 'President' Mugabe and his cronies will cease having theirs. Especially since the unemployment rate is far from the worst statistic one could've cited for this country ruined by the unimaginable greed and egos of a tiny elite.

So, AIDS infection rate is reported around 20% (and who knows how accurate that is), about a fifth of the country has just up and left, there's patchy electricity at best, opposition personnel go missing, there's a massive cholera outbreak, inflation figures have long since ceased to have any meaning since there are no consumer goods to measure them by, and this entire mess is headed up by a guy who COMMITTED FREAKING GENOCIDE IN THE 80's.

And still, the most evocative summary the American Media can come up with for Bob M's exceptional misrule is that his policy of seizing white-owned farms has been controversial.

I'm really not sure what to make of that.

Neutrino, spot on criticism of the American media. They do focus in on that. Leave it to European outlets like the BBC to go more in dept, as usual.
