    Two things

    First, Japan is offering to send free rice to some hard hit countries. The US is opposing it because the farm lobby fears that Japan is dumping. Read that in the WSJ.

    Second, there may not be any leader who has done more to ruin his economy and starve his people than Mugabe. The incompetent thug destroyed a farming economy that was once an exporter of food. Today, the annualized inflation rate is over 300,000% and tens of thousands have fled into South Africa. The man is a joke.
