via Zim to send crocodile, zebra meat to Italy – New Zimbabwe 10/11/2015

THE government has signed an agreement with El Badaoui Ltd. to export crocodile and zebra meat to Italy, trade and industry minister Mike Bimha told reporters in the capital, Harare.

Zimbabwe also signed an agreement concerning the manufacture of a prototype car in Zimbabwe, the minister said.

The vehicle, if successful, could be exported throughout Africa, Bimha said, without giving further details.

In August, Bimha led a high-powered delegation of government ministers and officials from relevant ministries and private sector to Italy for the Milano Expo.

At the time, Bimha said they were going to promote trade and investment into Zimbabwe, especially into the sectors of tourism, agriculture, finance and mining.

The expo was mainly about food security although every effort was made to promote trade and investment.

“We would like to boost intra-Africa trade and make use of the Interim Economic Partnership with the European Union.

“We want to exploit the market offered by the EU because we are a signatory, but the challenge is our capacity to be able to produce enough quantities and good quality, which affects the cost,” Bimha was quoted as saying at the time.

    There you have it, you crocs and zebras ,you felt fine and comfortable because the main focus was on elephants, rhinos and lions.I suggest you crocs start swimming along the zambezi or limpopo into neighbouring countries and you zebras stampede across the rivers and join your kith and kin in serengeti or kruger national parks, the grass is greener there anyway. On top of that you will meet a lot of people from your home country, who left because they were hungery and did not even come up with the idea to eat you let alone to send you as a hamburger to italy. For you crocs even your skin will make fine shoes and hand bags.
