Zimbabwe: Is it a crime to be white in Zimbabwe?

Chris Kabwato discusses the question of race in Zimbabwe's politics: “In Zimbabwe there is a person who cannot be sworn in as a minister of state, not because of any crime he committed, but he is simply the wrong colour. He is white.”


  • Not Racist

    It is amazing how the tables have turned on whites. they go crying like babies on the same issues they have inflicted all over the world.

    CHRIST had no issues with races.

  • One cannot say there is racism in Zimbabwe its the white men who do not want to participate in anything the black Zimbabwean is partisan to, ie sport, how many whites go to the stadia to watch soccer, none , and how many of them recognise any public national gathering ,ie Independence day non save for the few ministers within the MDC T Coalition government . even in work places all white owned companies pay more monies to the white workers than the black workers ; i must say Zim whites are the most arrogant lot here in Africa, they need to embrace and realise that the world has changed and is still changing fast, they need to catch up.
