Everything Ulster And Africa

From Everything Ulster:
Recently appointed Deputy President of South Africa, Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka (and I thought Orlaith was a dodgy name!) has called for South Africa's "land redistribution" scheme to be speeded up, citing Robert Mugabe's antics in Zimbabwe as an example.

"Land reform in South Africa has been too slow and too structured. There needs to be a bit of 'oomph'. That's why we may need the skills of Zimbabwe to help us."

Yes that's right. Apparently the burning out of farmers based on the colour of their skin, the murder of anyone who is less than pleased at the policy and the transformation of the "breadbasket of Africa" into a country facing expulsion from the IMF, 70% unemployment and over 500% inflation can be summed up as adding "a bit of 'oomph'."

Her spokesman later said the remarks were made in "a light-hearted moment." Yes, she's a right old kidder! But what would you expect from a country that blames Britain for the madness of Mugabe?
