    what the hell is your problem? zimbabwe is not the poorest country in the world! we have everything we need here. have you been to zambia before? do not listen to what you here on the news! they exaggerate. i am from zimbabwe and i live healthily and am not damn suffering. you should come here by yourself and judge from here. do not judge from where ever you are from, that is just ignorant. what you said really got to me and i am touched!

      I’ve always wanted to go to Zimbabwe. Do you know anything about foreign travel to your country? How much money should I try to save up? What methods of travel do you recommend? Is there a tour company you think is good? Thanks.

      Dear Rachel

      have you seen the latest 1 July 2011 World Bank income classifications? The countries listed above including our motherland Zimbabwe are still classified as low income countries or least developed countries. In Southern Africa we are in a group of three i.e Malawi, Mozambique and Zimbabwe making up the least developed countries or low income countries. Angola, Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland and Zambia are all classified as middle income countries. It is no use directing cheap shorts at Zambia. We used to look down upon Zambians but since they voted out Kaunda in 1991 they have shown a level of maturity and discipline from which we can learn. kaunda stepped down when he was defeated. Mugabe still clings on. Zambians are past the nationalisation nonsense. In Zimbabwe we think it will be our panacea to our economic malaise. Why dont we learn from Zambians and how they have turned their once anaemic economy around? Isnt this the same country we used to export food to? Arent they now exporting food to DRC, East Africa, Namibia, Angola including Zimbabwe?

    Rachel, you really must hate Zambia and Zambians. No my dear Zambia is not in the top 10 poorest countries. Zambia’s GDP @December 2010 is $15.691bn. Zimbabwe’s is a third of Zambia @ $5bn. Zambia is the Third largest economy in Southern Africa after South Africa and Angola in that order. Zambia has overtaken you and the country is still growing. Just to remind you Zimbabwe’s GDP in 1995 was $9bn. Zambia’s was $3.3 bn. Now everything has been turned upside down.

    How can u even compare Zambia to Zimbabwe! Zambia is by far the much stronger economy…. Looks like Rachel is living is a fantasy world. How she forgets hyper inflation, lack of food on it’s selves, mass migration of Zimbabweans to other countries and complete lawlessness I’n the country. Come on you can’t be that blind!

    Why the are all these countries from Africa. I’m really getting tired of people think that Africa is the a dumb. I know there are places like this in Africa, and the world, but its not the whole damn continent!!

    if all of you guys who are upset about these stats are from these countries – then you’re the rich ones! Perhaps you need to get off the computer and go for a drive (again indicating your level of wealth) around your country and see what the rest of the country lives like!

    I feel comfortable making this statement, as an expatriate living in Guinea. I work in a very rural area where people do not have telephones, power or even know what the internet is (yes I am out of the country writing this).

    the more interesting information is to look at how corrupt your countries are and combine that with the data noted above and you will find a striking similarity! Your corruption is making your per person GDP the lowest in the world.

    The biggest question is – what are you doing productively to fix the situation? are you questioning your government? are you doing anything to turn this problem around?

    i think you people just hate zimbabwe. its the fact that most of you have never been to zimbabwe and see for yourself how it is like. to tell you zimbabwe is one of the best countries to live in in southern africa. coz there is peace, no hunger, no high crime rate.zimbabwe. i have been to malawi, zambia, botswana, llesotho, swaziland, and namibia. zimbabwe is far much better than all these countries. south africa has better economy but there is high crime rate. zimbwe is like canaan, the promised land in the bible. of course we have isolated cases of poverty but to tell you people in zimbabwe are not poor neither they are suffering. you statistics are not genuine coz they biased towards demonising zimbabwe just because we kicked the british out of the farms so that we resetlle our landless natives. vose vanhu vari kutaura zvemarraara about zimbabwe are stupit. the western propaganda has blinkered their minds just becuase zimbabwe is an enemy of britain and america. whoever thinks that zimbabae is poor, plic come to my place. i will go with you around zimbabwe at my expense.
