This can't be good......[Zimbabwe]

Zimbabwe has 'run out of food'

ZIMBABWE'S main opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) party said the country had run out of food, including the national staple maize, and demanded an apology from President Robert Mugabe's government for lying about abundant harvests.

"The country has now stocked out. This country has run out of maize, this a fact ... the country has no food," Renson Gasela, MDC's shadow minister of agriculture told a news conference.

"No country with a functional government, with no national catastrophe or disaster should ever stock out," he said.

Sure looks like it was just a great idea to take all the farms away from the white farmers and give the land back to the people.
