Everybody's Fault But Mine

Mugabe threatens to seize foreign firms over sanctions

The southern African state is struggling with an economic crisis many blame on Mugabe's policies, which has left it with an inflation rate of over 2.2 million percent and chronic shortages of food and other basic needs.

2.2 million percent inflation! I knew it was bad but that number surprises.

Mugabe's government blames the crisis on sabotage by enemies angry over his seizures of white-owned farms for blacks, and has followed up that policy with another controversial law seeking to transfer majority ownership of foreign-owned firms to locals.

You can't build an empire on hate. Eventually, a sane man will have come and to take him out.
