Bobby Mugabe Alert: "National Foods, a company partially owned (34%) by Anglo Zimbabwe, a subsidiary of London-based Anglo American" has been hoarding salt according to Mugabe's latest spin effort. "'They want people on the streets against our government. What kind of mischief is this?' he said, according to the state-owned Sunday Mail. 'We will take over their enterprises.' ... More than 6 million Zimbabweans, about half the population, are in danger of starvation after a drought and government seizures of white-owned commercial farms nearly destroyed this year's grain harvest, according to the United Nations "

No mention of what other condiments the starving residents of Zimbabwe might like on their tree bark.
