Operation Murambatsvina

It basically means 'drive out trash', and it is the new campaign of Robert Mugabe. The goal of which is to strengthen the powerbase of the 81th year old dictator.
The U.N. estimates up to 1.5 million people were left homeless after police
burned or demolished their shacks in what the government calls a clean up
campaign in the cities.

Anyway Mugabe was already mad, but he seems to move more closer to Mao, Stalin or Pol Pot everyday in terms of victims of his regime.

Mugabe seems to be doing exactly the opposite of what somebody like Hernando De Soto would advise him to do. And that is the legalization of property of the poor and not destroying it.
