Stay strong

Post by Andybligzz » Tue Jan 15, 2019 8:44 am

Seeing all the petrol riots and Sean bells status on Facebook saying the government has attempted to block social media and potentially the whole internet is shocking to read and truely hope it’s not as bad as the media is reporting . I have friends in zim and some of my friends have family still there . If anyone is on the ground at the moment and can give a run down of what is happening I would appreciate it a lot , I feel highly concerned and wish nothing but safety and better times for everyone involved . We are all
United here because of cricket but there is much much more important things in life . The people of zim deserve so much better than this .
The Zimbabwe Cricket team have found Ebola in one of their members, but they're not concerned because they have also found Ebatsmen and Efielda!

The government has blocked the internet in Zimbabwe, only people with VPNs can use the net apparently

The place is burning right now

A friend of mine said he witnessed 2 police officers attacking an elderly white gentleman at a petrol station; the reason being he had jumped the que, when in actual fact he had waited in front of my mate the entire way, and was only attacked because a black couple indicated he had pushed in. Absolutely pathetic. I really do hope this gets sorted.

The days of peaceful resistance need to end. Peaceful resistance has been going nowhere for the last 20 years.

Africans can’t manage their own affairs.
Severe Brain drain exodus and genetics means the Zimbabwean population has a low average IQ. This becomes a massive problem over the span of a country. I get contacted by Zimbabwean professionals daily who want out.
They killed the agricultural sector and they killed the country in the process and didn’t have the foresight to understand this would happen.
The only thing Zim has going for it is natural resources that can be managed with top talent from outside the country, but the politicians can very easily hoodwink the low IQ population into making them feel its colonialism or an invasion.

The Chinese are already taking over most of the world. I don't know if that colonialism or invasion, but the world will look a vastly different place in 20-30 years time.
