Natalie Solent on Zimbabwe and its schools: "The dragon is eating its own tail "

Natalie Solent links to this story:

Zimbabwe renewed its offensive against "racist" private schools yesterday by arresting headmasters and members of governing bodies, who are accused of raising fees without permission.

Teachers and others in the private sector went into hiding as the government warned a delegation of concerned parents: "We will do to you what we did to the white farmers, and we will take over your schools."

Says Natalie:

The dragon is eating its own tail: 90% of the children in these schools are black, and include the children of members of the cabinet, including Mugabe himself.

I wrote about the cricket manifestation of this process for Samizdata yesterday.

Not good.
