Zimbabwe purged whites from the land and then the farms died, creating mass starvation among the population. Recently, MP Joseph Tshuma was reported to have commented that his country cannot prosper without the involvement of the whites in its affairs and that no other country was capable of developing without the whites.
Farm attacks are ‘inside jobs’ as employees provide detailed security information to the hit squads who commit the murders. The motivation is to steal guns, money and jewelry.

She explains how farmers can avoid attacks as very few arrests are made and when there is an arrest, the police are paid off to lose the dockets so there is no prosecution.
