In Mugabe’s Zimbabwe, people eat Elephant meat, even raw



There is a resemblance between Hitler’s Germany and Mugabe’s Zimbabwe. Both preached racial supremacy but as some people already know, black people are far from being superior to anyone. In Hitler’s Germany everyone had a car, a job, money, and all it ever wanted, however in Mugabe’s Zimbabwe, white farmers are being killed, rapped and even cast away by racist black people. Now because there is no more white farmers and blacks are usually lazy, it looks like they’re back to savage tribalism and soon maybe even to cannibalism.

For us it is a saddening sight – a magnificent bull elephant struck down in his old age.

But for the starving of Zimbabwe, it was little short of a miracle.

The carcass provided a vital source of food, and hundreds of desperate villagers in the Gonarezhou National Park descended on the dead animal within minutes of its discovery.

Using machetes, axes and knives made from tin cans they set upon the six-ton carcass, which was found deep in scrubland.

Fights broke out as villagers battled to strip chunks of flesh from the animal and drag them away to feed their families.

It took just one hour and 47 minutes for the 13ft-tall elephant to be reduced to a skeleton. Every part was used for food, even the trunk and ears.

The bones of the 70-year-old animal were taken to boil for soup and within 24 hours nothing was left but a blood-stained patch of earth.

The images are undeniably shocking. But they illustrate the terrible lengths to which Zimbabweans are forced to go just to survive under Robert Mugabe.

Yesterday, the Red Cross warned the situation in the former British colony is ‘critical’ with 2.17million – one in four of the population – requiring urgent food aid.

Audience: People gather on a hill a short distance away to watch village men get to work

Emma Kundishora, of the Zimbabwe Red Cross Society, said: ‘In some parts of the country, the food situation is as bad as many of our volunteers and staff have ever seen.’

Conditions are expected to deteriorate further this year following the collapse of agriculture caused by President Mugabe’s violent seizures of thousands of white-owned farms since 2000.

Erratic rain has also damaged crops of corn. Harvests could produce just 500,000-tons this year, less than a third of the amount required to feed the nation.

Photographer David Chancellor said: ‘Just after dawn a villager spotted the carcass as he passed on a bicycle.

‘It was in the middle of nowhere, but within 15 minutes hundreds of people had arrived from all directions.

Desperate: A blood-spattered villager and, right, the spot where the bull elephant lay is completely cleared just 24 hours after it was found

‘The women formed a ring around the elephant and the men stood inside, fighting and stabbing each other to get to the meat.’

He added: ‘The meat was taken back to homes. Some was eaten immediately but most was dried on washing lines and stored to eat later.

‘There were celebrations in the surrounding villages for the next two nights.’

    I’m appalled! “as some people already know, black people are far from being superior to anyone.” And they call white America racist! And “white farmers are being killed, rapped and even cast away by racist black people.” Look at the pot calling the kettle black! And even worse: “blacks are usually lazy.” And to think they called the “Tea Party” crowd racist! Does no one else see this?

      Prejudice is the act of judging someone based on something other than the person him/herself. I grew up in a white town – they even made a movie about my hometown. KKK passed out pamphlets at the local Junior High. But Katy, you’re the prejudiced one! Anyone who can make blankets statements like “black people are far from being superior to anyone” or “blacks are usually lazy” is being prejudiced.
      As for being a racist, we all are a little. It is a struggle to not judge people based on race (Asians are hard working, Mexicans have large families, etc) because culture affects the way we live. We should all try not to prejudge based on race, family name, religions, whatever. But sometimes it is necessary and not always bad. Negative statements like Katy’s, though, are bad!

      So the brilliant people of Africa developed a script, the wheel, a calendar, the architechture of Europe … – ever thought why they are so backward? Because of stupidity and lazyness, that is why.
      Give up your passport and ask for citizenship in a country like Zimbabwe, Liberia, Burundi – any part in sub-Sahara, and then tell us in six months about the industrious nature of the people…lol

      Katy, if you’re going to try to be insulting can you at least learn to spell? Even if we’re to take a sarcastic view here. On what basis can you argue “blacks are usually lazy” when there would have been much easier things to eat than skinning an entire elephant?

    Actually, this is the first positive development
    I’ve seen in some time for negros. The elephant dies of
    natural causes. The negros (not on welfare) go to
    consume the beast to such extent that there is no
    waste. All are fed. They are in their indigenous
    habitat being themselves without violence against
    whites. The story rarely works out this well.

  6. Deana Becker United States says:

    For decades the ENTIRE continent of Africa has been stripped of it’s natural resources and riches by Europeans. The fact that many natives are starving is testament to this. The agricultural deals and trades made by Europe and the USA have nearly reduced this great continent, the cradle of civilization to rubble.

    The writer of this article should be ashamed. I hope they don’t go around claiming to be a real journalist.

      I am a little unsure of what was robbed, there is still gold, diamonds and minerals in africa. Africa is blessed with natural resources and will continue to be so, for generation. And no, Arfrica is not the cradle of civilization. That would be Mesopothamia or the Indus

      The sub-Saharan Africans remained pre-neolithic age people by choice. It was not the Europeans that kept them backward.
      They did not develop a script, wheel, calendar, watch, or anything really. They did much better under Apartheid than in areas without it, i.e. the eastern part of the Congo.
      You might want to visit South Africa, and then Burundi, Benin, Congo, Liberia, Zimbabwe … lol…

    I DARE any human being who is standing on your self-righteous mountain to be in a situation with no McDonald’s no Burgerking or Wendy”s for thousands of miles and no grocery store etc….while You’re watching your family and yourself starve to death…..WHAT would YOU do?? Pathetic. Vast majority wouldn’t make it past your 2nd missed meal without melting into your own puddle of fat. But hey, maybe the others could use you as butter for the elephant bones. Spoiled rotten snots. :-?

      Oh, and the Africans that always blame Whitey for their own self-imposed backwardness, or depend on Whitey for everything called civilisation, is not pathetic?
      What is pathetic is that the Africans themselves did nothing to put up the McDonalds’ and so on.
