Elephants dying of thirst and the right groups fake outrage

Global outrage will definitely trail the news that, ‘more than 50 elephants have died of thirst in Zimbabwe’, such avoidable loss, should have been resigned our past.

International right groups including animal right campaigners and other lovers of nature, will be no doubt be outraged over the death of these ‘poor elephants.’

Sadly, this is nothing but pure hypocrisy, outright wickedness or both, you may wonder why and even ask if we hated animals so much?

To your questions; our response is no we don’t hate animals, we have lived with them all these years, even when Europe and Americas decimated theirs for food and pleasure many years ago.

Rather we are appalled how you cared more for your leisure and pass time more than your fellow human beings?

Zimbabwe Economic Crisis

Zimbabweans has been under increased food and water crisis of recent. Many have have died of either same thirst, lack of food, medication and for numerous other avoidable circumstances.

The nation’s currency have failed again, the only functioning water treatment plant in Harare was shut down not long ago, due to power difficulties.

About that time, the president of Zimbabwe, Mr Emmerson Mnangagwa was at the UN General Assembly in New York, where he made his now derided speech which virtually no one listened to except empty seats.

In his speech he appealed for the removal of what he called ‘unjust sanctions’ on his country. As if it to prove that no one was listening, few days later USA placed a ban on diamond coming from Zimbabwe, claiming that it was mined with forced labour.

When US Embassy in Zimbabwe was asked how do they know that the diamonds were mined with forced labour, they were also asked whether they witnessed it. They said no, they neither visited nor have any evidence, however a source told them that it was so.

This decision to impose more hardship on millions of Zimbabweans were taken because of some ‘table talk’ with an unnamed source.

Sadly, no one cared, no right group spoke out for Zimbabweans, now that elephants has died, expect them to find their voices.

Because they can’t stand not being able to enjoy seeing them when they jet in for their pleasure tour, they cannot afford not to have pictures of elephants that will brag with among their friends back in Europe, America or Asia, so the elephant must not die.

What about the humans living there? Well good luck to them, not our business.
