White People of South Africa Are the Reason for the AU Failure?

South Africa

According to Robert Mugabe, the leader of Zimbabwe, it is the white people of South Africa behind the reason for the African Union (AU) failure. During a function attended by African Diplomats in Beijing, China, Mugabe took the opportunity to demean white South Africans as the cause of placing the country into a compromising spot.

Mugabe said the South Africa economy was still in the hands of white people and failed to lead economic development of countries in the AU. Mugabe said it was difficult for blacks to take control of the economy still under the minority group. South Africa according to Mugabe should take the lead and help African countries.

The failing Zimbabwe economy and the recent tour of china to raise funds by Mugabe did not deter his ability to blame white people. The disarray of Zimbabwe’s opposing parties is becoming irrelevant to the struggle for survival and did not stop Mugabe from condemning the treatment of white South Africans. Last year Mugabe took a swipe at Mandela as being too soft with white people and said the late Mandela did too much for the whites at the expense of blacks.

The African National Congress (ANC) secretary-general Gwede Mantashe responded to the Mugabe report by saying that South Africa would not “drive whites into the sea.” Mantashe said the Zimbabwe redistribution of national resources would not inspire the country to follow the Zimbabwe disordered black empowerment course.

The economy of Zimbabwe has dwindled away during the dictatorship rule of Mugabe, and the flourishing contributions of whites have been destroyed. Mugabe has failed to grasp the importance of the white contribution to the economy in both Zimbabwe and South Africa.

Mugabe has failed to understand that since the liberation of Nelson Mandela, South Africa has produced more black millionaires than any other African country. Over the last twenty years of democracy, the standard of living for previous disadvantaged groups has risen significantly. The land given to black aspiring farmers over the last twenty years, has remained barren and wasted, while white farmers in the area have endured endless persecution to feed the nation. It is the contribution of not only farmers, but also skilled white, Indian, and colored people of South Africa that drive the economy of the country.

The fall of Zimbabwe under the Mugabe rule is no solution for South Africa. The support Mantashe has given to the Mugabe speech is an indication South Africa agrees with the world that a dictatorship government is never a solution.

There is no reason to blame the white people of South Africa for the economic failure of the African Continent economic failure. The rainbow nation of South Africa has troubles and nepotism is a concern in government departments, along with corruption, but driving a minority group off the land is not the solution to a peaceful transition and a thriving economy. Regardless, Robert Mugabe, who is the leader of Zimbabwe, states that it is actually because of the white people of South Africa that the African Union (AU) has failed.

    That baboon is always blaming white people. There is not a successful black country in the world because blacks lack the intelligences of whites and Asians and aren’t capable of developing a successful economy. The blacks also depend on whites and Asians to find a cure for Ebola and other lack diseases. They are still a primitive race and haven’t evolved into full human beings.

    Everybody’s life is always someone elses fault….ever notice that? I’m surprised he doesn’t just blame homosexuals, they seem to be his other go-to when randomly appropriating blame for Africa’s problems.

    Every country in Africa has tried since their independance, Communism, Leninism, Stalinism, Maoism, in fact every ism Mugabe is no different, and beleive it or not every country in Africa has failed, the first country to go along right wing monetary policy will be the richest in Africa, excepting the countries that have oil, they tend to be Arab / muslim and they have their own kind of special stupidity.

    Mugabe could change Zimbabwe’s fortune if he would only adopt a precious metal currency for his country. It can be used along side of the present fiat money now in circulation until it has been widely accepted by the public.
    It only takes courage & will power since Zimbabwe already possess an abundance of gold, platinum & silver yet they refuse to fully utilize its potential.
    A national precious metal currency would be much stronger & have more value than any fiat currency presently in existence.
