    EU Gives Millions for Zim

    Harare - The European Union is to give €15m ($19m) in humanitarian aid for Zimbabwe, the bloc's executive announced on Friday.

    Zimbabwe has long been a political outcast as a result of international condemnation of President Robert Mugabe's authoritarian regime. But that has not stopped basic support being delivered to the country's beleaguered population.

    The EU's humanitarian aid commissioner, Kristalina Georgieva, said a government of national unity, installed last year after Mugabe accepted to share power with the opposition, has produced "recent improvements."

    However, "the road to recovery is still a long one. If we want Zimbabwe to get back on the path towards longer-term development, we will need to carry on with our efforts to provide clean water and sanitation facilities to the population," Georgieva indicated.

    Zimbabwe has been crippled by Mugabe's land reforms, nominally aimed at giving disenfranchised black farmers the large plots owned by former white colonizers.

    The policy led to the total collapse of the agriculture-based Zimbabwean economy, leaving large swathes of the population to rely
    on international aid.

    The latest funding from the EU is expected to provide for primary health care, distribution of medicines, supply of water and sanitation, as well as paying for vouchers and cash transfers to the population.

    I don't get it, just the other day comrade Mugabe arrogantly told the world that he did not need the help of the West. Now they are giving him money?

    Grin It all makes sense!

    Rooikat, let me explain how it works:
    EU gives lots of money to Zimbabwe for 'humanitarian aid'.
    The only humans there are the farmers.
    (but the EU still does'nt know that)
    Robert does'nt like farmers....
    So, he gives them nothing.
    and they keep the money for Mrs. Mugabe's next shopping trip in.....wait for it..
    The EU!!!
    .. so they get all the money back!
    And they all live happily ever after...
    except the farmers!

    Sounds about right Gerhardt. I always smell a rat whenever "charity" and "donations" are involved. Somehow that money will end up back in the pockets of the "donors".
