hopefully none of UK cadres are affected by these floods

once again looks like UK  was not prepared despite numerous warnings given to environment agency, gvt cut funding
come snow, they are never prepared, come rain and floods same story,

  Although  there  might  be  problems  here  and  there  but  they  deliver  most  of  their  promises.

Whoever  told  you  that  the  world  is  fair  is  a  fool.  Even  here,  some  areas  are  not  getting  the  downpour   in  equal  measure.

The million dollar question is, are we going to see a bumber harvest this season? Will these rains in zimbabwe transfer to a good thing or will be wasted?
I wonder what the excuse this time will be for importing maize?

LOL, no Shaps, it was diamonds they were after! Can you not see the resemblance to the "Groot Gat" in Kimberley?? Also note the picture of Harare, it seems that on top of everything else, the drainage system no longer works. Posted Image
Smith was being realistic-if you give people something before they are ready [for it] they are going to mess it up. And that has happened. If he had had the opportunity to work with the people [and] help bring them up, Zimbabwe would be a better place now. Smith did make it better during his government. There is no reason why he could not do that if he had been allowed to go on. Ernest Mtunzi

The roads that we are using today were all built by Smith. All the infrastructure is Smith’s. We never suffered the way we are suffering now because Smith took care of the economy that supported all people and they had enough to eat. When he left power the [British] pound was on a par with the Zimbabwean dollar, but President Mugabe has killed all that. Patrick Kombayi

I was in Windsor on Sunday, it is quite scary at the moment. Some of us in Berkshire will be marooned soon. Some B roads have been closed so we only use main roads resulting in traffic jams.

Flooding can be as formidable and destructive to crops as drought. There's a balance to be had and farmers have their work cut out in drought and flood-prone areas (which are often the same place) all around the world to harvest the fruit of their impressive labour.

Good luck Zimbabwe! Good luck Africa!

30 white farmers killed in Zimbabwe since 1980. 3000 white farmers killed in South Africa since 1990.

UMzilikazi ongamzila wegazi,
Iwundlu elizile izimbube
Lephukela izimbube
Inyanga engalilanga
Lona limtshing’ubethwa zinyoni
Eth’ukugcwala kwesikabhadakazi
Yasinelwa zinkanyezi zezulu,
Isinelwe yinkwenkwezi nesandulela,
Kwalilizel’isilimela nesicelankobe
Wayibamba wasiphaklaz’isijingo sofipha,
Inhloko yehlukana nesixhant’ekuqobokeni.
