This paragraph in the book talks about a armed men attacking a white farmer whose family has lived in Zimbabwe for generations. The book then talks about the colonial legacy and white folks owning a bunch of the land.
What the book leaves out is Zimbabwe’s dictator Robert Mugabe, who has been in power since Britain ended colonial rule there in 1980.
He has pushed radical land reform and redistribution.
One law says that the government can take white-owned land without providing compensation for the purpose of redistributing it to blacks (usually Mugabe cronies).
Mugabe uses whites as scapegoats for his own mismanagement of the country. Somehow they’re to blame for Zimbabwe having one of the world’s lowest life expectancies and one of its highest inflation rates.
Whites are attacked, persecuted, and sometimes killed. Mugabe and his cronies are essentially acting as African Nazis. In fact, his right hand man gave himself the nickname, ‘Hitler.’
The point is, Mugabe is fomenting the violence and instability of his country.
