We give you in pictures, what happens at the floors.

  1. good pictures. they are telling us the real Zimbabwean story. can you also go to other towns and show the level of poverty

  2. Zanu chiwororo so. Nyika kuita mamvemve while others are zooming around in electric trains and real highways we are stuck in 2nd gear and experiencing reverse development. Eish.

  3. Your story starts in the middle – start from way back when these “farmers” invaded the farms…that way its easier to compare & contrast.
