There is a big problem in Zambabwe.White farmers are being kicked off their land(although i believe some of the land belongs rightfully to many
natives,kicking them off is not the way to solve it,especially when inexperience people are put into place),People are being moved out of their homes
and over a million people of suffering from poverty.Too mak things worse,over 2thirds of the nation are unemployed.
Its clear that the gvernment in Zambabwe is corrupt,and im afriad to say so are many of the ther african countries.Being partly african myself,it
hurts to see this going on.Not to mention the "Aid problem"(not AIDS,although it is an important problem).Billions have been pumped into african
countries,and i wonder to myself,are all that money getting through to the people,or are most getting through to the corrupt.I read many books on
nations and iv found an interest fact.Some african countries are so poowr,that $1000US would feed a family for a year.Thats probably 3-4 people.Thats
$250 per person.The american dollar is valuable because some nations have a GNP rate below $1000.More that 60billion dollars has been sent in aid to
african nations over the past 20years,and yet,i dont see much of an improved result.
It is a fact,wealthy nations offer african nations millions in aid a year,the african governments agree and say to give the money through to them,and
they will give everysingle cent to its poor.The way i see it,only a fraction goes to the poor,and the rest goes into their military for pointless
wars.I am sick and tired of seeing people complain how little wealthy nations are doing,i think they do do enough.Although i do believe that there is
still a major imbalance between global military spending and global aid spending.In reality,the corrupt african governments are partly to blame for
africas poverty(along with colonialism and global ignorance),and if we do not confront them,we will never go any further than step one.
I believe action should be taken.And to start,i believe the Magube`s Zambabwean government should be more confronted.As a South African,i do not like
the idea of a major problem happening at ur doorstep in neighbouring Zambabwe.We have the power,we have the ability,I believe it is time for the South
african government and the EU,united nations to take over and do something.We are seeing a national crime being commited just like Rawanda.
It sounds extreme,and yes military action does not sound any wiser,And i believe that most of the time,money should be spent taliing it over,but in
some cases,it is the only way.If we leave this arising problem,many pf the innocent will either die or be unfairly treated.What are many or your
