    Zimbabwe has a potential to be the most violent country ahead of South Africa in 2030 given its climate conditions. Get it right we will surpass South American drug barons if the country becomes so silly to allow these foreign drug dealers to lawfully cultivate mbanje like that. No sane person would allow that to happen. Zimbabwe must not be open for such destructive projects. What really are our rulers up to.
