Personally, if I was in any of the investors positions, I wouldn't wana touch Zimbabwe with a 100m stick.
Sad to say, but that's just how it is and how it has been, I am not being fooled by empty promises of "this time will be different", they can sing that song to their mothers, but I am with the ex Zim farmers. Only an ass will bump its head twice in the same spot.
Looking at how America runs things really isn't going to save them or anyone for that matter and it should be clear as day for all of us. It will bring profits to a certain extent and only to a certain select few, but the last thing it will do is benefit the natives and their country.
It really is no ones fault but their own, managent and leadership really is a problem in our part of the world and those central african countries really have a long ways to go before they can start acting like America.
I would say start with focussing on population control, then education management which will also help in the health management department, then adequate housing, then overall health care and management and environmental management with proper running water systems, cut ties with major companies sucking the resources out the country for a few packets of peanuts to feed the whole country, start using their own resources to work their lands and start actually getting food to the population, start proper farming and proper living and stop thinking living in shacks and clay houses and dying of hunger and disease is cultural enrichment...
making money from growing weed isn't going to satisfy all these needs. it's just gona be another "taking candy from a baby" situation. can smell it from miles away.
The whole world knows by now doing business with any African country is not a good choice to make, because of our management problem. For years and years other countries have been sending African countries money, food, water, clothes, medicine, housing, schooling all just because people are too nice and there will always be a bunch of people out to help those in need, yet still there are abandoned children laying in the dirt dying of hunger and the people from these countries are too proud and culturally enriched to change and be like the rest of the world.
I hope Zim leaders wake up and realise the more they wana be like America and having to turn to other countries for help the more they will get sucked dry. They have every resource they need to make a thriving country, except leadership, but they can fix that.
