It's Like Something Out of Atlas Shrugged

Mugabe is offering to lease back the farms to the white farmers he stole them from. He has destroyed the Zimbabwean economy, so now he hopes his victims will bail him out. As David Gillies wrote, in a post titled “Tell him to go to hell,”

The only way that people come to understand the folly of supporting socialism is to suffer its consequences. Zimbabwe is in the grip of hyperinflation, it's running out of food, and is near collapse. So now the bestial Robert Mugabe is asking white farmers to come back and 'lease' their own land back from the thugs who drove them away in the first place. And if they do, and get the farms back into production, how long before the 'war veterans' re-confiscate them? Let the country burn. With luck Mugabe and his cockroach cronies will be consumed in the conflagration.
