Zimbabwean farmers are defecting Zimbabwe in droves to use their agricultural skills, to grow opium in Afghanistan.
In many senses it explains why Mugabe wanted to kick out these white farmers at the first place-they didn’t truly love Zimbabwe or Africa-it was just a means to an end and all about territorial control. Why else would they find it so easy to switch their alliances to growing opium in Afghanistan for chrissake?
Morals anyone? Bah. Guess not.
“Three years after he gave up on Africa, Mr Spies is one of a number of white farmers who have brought their knowledge of agriculture, and experience of guerrilla warfare, to the opium fields of southern Afghanistan.”
