WARNING: This is Version 1 of my old archive, so Photos will NOT work and many links will NOT work. But you can find articles by searching on the Titles. There is a lot of information in this archive. Use the SEARCH BAR at the top right. Prior to December 2012; I was a pro-Christian type of Conservative. I was unaware of the mass of Jewish lies in history, especially the lies regarding WW2 and Hitler. So in here you will find pro-Jewish and pro-Israel material. I was definitely WRONG about the Boeremag and Janusz Walus. They were for real.

100 White Zim Farmers create 4,118 Jobs in Mozambique

[Note. Here is another example of the real world of economics. Some skilled white farmers not only produce more than peasants, but they create work for black people. Chances are too, that those black people they create work for, will be living far better than any peasant would. But these realities of life are ignored by people on the left because it does not suit them. Once more it shows, like the farmers in Zambia, that the whites can go anywhere in Africa and make a success where the blacks cannot. Jan]

Maputo – White Zimbabwean commercial farmers have created more than 4 000 jobs in neighbouring Mozambique, where they settled after being ousted from their land back home, a regional governor said Tuesday.

“The Zimbabwean farmers, with about a thousand hectares of land each, have so far generated a total of 4 118 new jobs,” Soares Nhaca, governor of the central Mozambican province of Manica, where the farmers settled, told reporters.

Nhaca said there are about 100 Zimbabwean farmers in the fertile districts of Manica province, growing traditional cash crops such as tobacco, cotton and maize.

Mangoes and millet

Most of the new jobs are in tobacco farms, the governor said, adding that some farmers also grew mangoes and millet for export to South Africa.

The majority of the Zimbabwean commercial farmers have been allotted land in the districts of Barue and Sussundenga, near the border with Zimbabwe.

Mozambique has taken a cautious approach to requests from white farmers for land, hoping to avoid replicating Zimbabwe’s inequitable pattern of land ownership, in which the tiny white minority owned more than one-quarter of the nation’s land.

In 2000, the Zimbabwean government accelerated a land reform programme, under which land was seized from white farmers and redistributed to landless blacks.

Since then, more than three-quarters of Zimbabwe’s 4 500 white commercial farmers have been expropriated of about 11 million hectares.

All land in Mozambique belongs to the state and cannot be sold. The constitution only allows land to be leased.

Manica province, which borders Zimbabwe, is the most sought after by foreign farmers.

Governor Nhaca said his government has also received land requests from South African farmers.

The whole of central and northern Mozambique possesses land with almost the same characteristics as those in Manica – good soil and climate.
