Does Zimbabwe really need China's money?

How can Zimbabwe be rising from the economic collapse when death is all around and children are being forced to be slaves for the soldiers of the ZANU PF party? When soldiers in helicopters using mounted machine guns shoot panners in the fields of Marange. Tsvangirai and the MDC are trying to convince Western donors that Zimbabwe is improving and Mugabe can be trusted. How can Mujuru's daughter attempt to sell uncertified gold and diamonds on the international market in Spain? Mujuru is a senior ZANU PF official and Zimbabwe's vice president and is a major stakeholder in the field. Why are Tsvangirai and Mugabe not setting right the diamond mine and using the money to help their own country. Why should only those in power get rich and the poorest in the country have nothing but misery, rape, torture, death, and child slave labor? Mugabe needs to see the blood on his hands and turn the black hatred in his heart to helping his own people stand up and be proud once more for Zimbabwe.

Good post! Why does it always seem like the rich officials get richer and the people who need the money just get poorer and have to deal with more horrific circumstances? Mugabe shouldn't be in power any longer. From Mobutu to Al Bashir to Mugabe...Africa has had and currently has it's fair share of horrible leaders. Diamond sales need to be regulated more also! Thanks for sharing!
