What exactly are you claiming here? That there was no drought in Zimbabwe in 1991-1992 because that particular article you've cited doesn't list it as a "drought event" going by its particular criteria? The article you've cited just seems to be inaccurate about droughts for Zimbabwe. I don't know of any credible source that says there wasn't a drought in Zimbabwe in 1991-1992, but the article you've cited seems to imply exactly that - that there wasn't a drought in Zimbawe in 1991-1992. So you should regard your article as not completely accurate or using different criteria from what most would use if you have any sense. I've seen different sources give slightly different drought years, and one source ("Drought conditions and management strategies in Zimbabwe" by S. S. Nangombe) even classified droughts according to severity, but 1992 is always included no matter what the source is. How is it that you believe your source is completely accurate when it implies that 1992 was not a drought year for Zimbabwe?
Also, regarding being "so wrong"...you're the same person who in the past just parroted some made up nonsense (made up by a neo-nazi "journalist" no less) about farmers in Zambia as soon as he came across it on the internet, without doing any verification, simply because you believed it provided an opportunity to make negative comments about an African group. You have a habit on here of just making stuff up when it comes to Africa and I've had to correct multiple incorrect statements that you've made, so I can't comprehend how you have the gall to say "as usual actual facts etc...."
Also, I don't know why you posted the same image three times...that won't make it any less inaccurate.
Yeah...I know when Mugabe came to power.
I also know that Mugabe didn't carry out the "land grabs" you referred to in 1980, or in 1991-1992.
Years ago, on this forum, on a thread which you weren't on (or in which we didn't interact at all), I explicitly mentioned that Zimbabwe exported sugar, cotton, and metals (from mining), and this is before I had had any interaction with you on the topic of Zimbabwe. How is it that you believe that I asserted that "tobacco was the only cash crop" simply because, in later posts, I emphasized the greater importance of tobacco as an export over most other agricultural exports? Sorry but there is no argument here for you to latch on to. If I've already posted that Zimbabwe exported sugar and cotton in the distant past (and I have), it couldn't be the case that I believed that "tobacco is the only cash crop" even if in a later post I emphasized the greater importance of tobacco as a cash crop compared to most others.You, YES YOU! Suggested that Tobacco was the only cash crop, but maybe English is your second language.
The most substantial decline before the 2008 law took place in the time period that I mentioned. I didn't "skirt the situation of the mining sector". I'm aware that it declined, but your response focused mainly on the decline in manufacturing so I commented on that.You are talking nonsense. Manufacturing declined immediately after the Lancaster House settlement because, with aid and forex, availaibilty imports were possible--I note that you skirt the situation of the mining sector. It collapsed in the early 2000s because of African banditry.
The point I actually made was that the decline in the manufacturing sector didn't simply occur in or after 2008, hence your earlier comment/explanation just didn't make much sense. I didn't assert that something like the 2008 law had existed for Rhodesia - my post implies exactly the opposite if you have any reading comprehension.There was no protectionism on external investment in industry in Rhodesia--NONE AT ALL and i challenge you to prove otherwise.
After UDI there were restrictions on the export of profits and forex regulations, but no criminal demand that some raggle-taggle African loafer should get half of a company just because his uncle was Mugabe's mate
