ZIMBABWE ANNOUNCES AMBITIOUS PLANS FOR A FINAL SOLUTION TO WHITE RACISM
Last Thursday, Robert Mugabe the President of Zimbabwe, announced plans for the beginning of a “Holocaust” against all whites in the country. The announcement was made at a speech attended by over 10,000 citizens and by several other African leaders and heads of state, as well as international observers. Mugabe noted that “All through history, whites have done nothing but exploit other races. Whites are an oppressive, abusive, dishonest, criminal, and evil race as they themselves admit! We have decided, therefore, to exterminate every white man, woman, and child in Zimbabwe. We will purify our Black African nation of the disease of whiteness. I will show them no mercy. I will show them a new definition of pain. I will finally deliver justice to our people!”

Report is Nonsense - Comes From Fake-News Blog 'Diversity Chronicle'
It comes from the fake-news blog 'Diversity Chronicle', which specializes in publishing outlandish nonsense disguised as news. A disclaimer on the blog announces that 'original content on this blog is largely satirical' and that the author created the blog for his own personal amusement.
In fact, none of the reports published on the blog have any credibility and they should not be taken seriously.
Because the blog's fictional stories are presented as news, many people are apt to believe the information and share it with their social media friends.
