In and Around News 2008-04-01:'贫困的国度:津巴布韦'


津巴布韦(Zimbabwe),非洲东南部一个美丽的国家,目前正遭受着罕见的经济衰退。不仅有高通胀,还有高达80%的失业率。津巴布韦当地到处都是千万富翁,但这些千万富翁却一贫如洗。津国农民平均月入3000万津巴布韦元,工厂工人月入3亿津元。但当地两卷厕纸售价1000万津元、一条面包也要1000万津元、10公斤玉米4500万津元。当地一名政府工人退休后每月领取6万津元退休金,但根本无法生存。

Transcript

This is the Zimbabwe Robert Mugabe doesnt want you to see. People reduce to scavenging in the rubbish dumps searching for anything of value just trying to survive in the country where unemployment is now at 80%.

 

Zimbabwes downfall would be hidden from the world if Mr. Mugabe had his way. Journalists face arrest here. So we have to pose as tourists catching glimpses of the second city Bulawayo through the car window. The presidents policies have literally destroyed lives here.

 

He was born in 2003 very easy and he died in 2008, so he was about five

 

Weve concealed the identity of this gravedigger, but he wanted to show us the fresh mounds of earth in the children section of the city cemetery. The graves of babies and infants whove died in the past few months.

 

Now I can't see there is a great change, the number is still increasing

 

More people are dying, (People are dying.) and they are dying young. (Yeah, each in every day.)

 

The adults section in the cemetery tells the same story, each mound marking out a life cut short.

 

Most people in Zimbabwe dont even make it to middle age now. The average life expectancy for women is 34 years, the lowest in the world, for men it is just 37. All of this the results of poverty, AIDS and the near total collapse of the healthcare system.

 

Zimbabwe used to have the best medical care in Africa. Now it is one of the worst places in the world to be sick. We are on our way to one of the main hospitals in Bulawayo. Now everything will not allow to go inside that with a camera. But we have got a secret camera. And weve arranged to meet a doctor here, who's willing to show us around. So hopefully we will be able to get an idea of what life is like as a patient in Zimbabwe today.

 

Ok, here he is.

Hi, how are you?

Very fine.

OK. We'll go.

 

So this is the casualty waiting area, all of the patients here will have to pay for their own treatment when they arrive here. I've seen most of them cant even afford coming to hospital at all.

 

We moved on through the hospital which seemed clean and orderly. But the staff told me even basic equipment like IVs are in short supply along with most drugs.

 

So if you dont have the IVs or the drugs, what can they buy?

 

We give them prescriptions to go and buy.

 

And where can they go and buy?

 

They go and buy in the chemist themselves.

 

and if they havent got the money?

 

"They tempt to eat another drug."

 

You give them a different drug, sometimes not the best drug.

 

The staff working here get paid less than 20 pounds a month.

 

The working conditions are pathetic; there is nothing to use for patients. You cant help the patients, you cant help yourself.

 

Even if you are healthy, life in Zimbabwe is a struggle now. Fuel is as precious as gold here. And with 100000 percent inflation, the money is almost worthless, counted out in 10-million-dollar notes. Even if you got the cash you cant buy much with it. We found many of the supermarket shelves empty. And what little food there is goes up in price every day.

 

"It's a cheese."

 

29-million-dollar."

 

President Mugabe tells his people that foreign sanctions are to blame for the collapse of the economy. But it is a lie. This is all his own work. Eight years of disastrous land reforms which have brought the country he liberated to its knees. No wonder he doesnt want you to see this.

This is the Zimbabwe Robert Mugabe doesn’t want you to see. People reduce to scavenging in the rubbish dumps searching for anything of value just trying to survive in the country where unemployment is now at 80%.

Zimbabwe’s downfall would be hidden from the world as Mr. Mugabe had his way. Journalists face arrest here. So we have to pose as tourists catching glimpses of the second city Bulawayo through the car window. The president’s policies have literally destroyed lives here.

He was born in 2003 very easy and he died in 2008, so he was about five”

We’ve concealed the identity of this gravedigger, but he wanted to show us the fresh mounds of earth in the children section of the city cemetery. The graves of babies and infants who’ve died in the past few months.

“Now I can see there is a great change, the number is still increasing”


More people are dying, (People are dying.) and they are dying young. (Yeah, each in every day.)

The adults’ section in the cemetery tells the same story, each mound marking out a life cut short.


Most people in Zimbabwe don’t even make it to middle age now. The average life expectancy for women is 34 years, the lowest in the world, for men it is just 37. All of this the result of poverty, AIDS and the near total collapse of the healthcare system.

Zimbabwe used to have the best medical care in Africa. Now it is one of the worst places in the world to be sick. We are on our way to one of the main hospitals in Bulawayo. Now everything will not allow to go inside that with a camera. But we have got a secret camera. And we’ve arranged to meet a doctor here, who's willing to show us around. So hopefully we would be able to get an idea of what life is like as a patient in Zimbabwe today.

Ok, here it is.

Hi,how are you?

Very fine.

OK. We'll go.

“So this is the casualty waiting area, all of the patients here will have to pay for their own treatment when they arrive here. I've seen most of them can’t even afford coming to hospital at all.”

We moved on through the hospital which seems clean and orderly. But the staff told me even basic equipment like IVs are in short supply along with most drugs.

“So if you don’t have the IVs or the drugs, what can they buy?”


“We give them prescriptions to go and buy.”


“And where can they go and buy?”


“They go and buy in the chemist themselves.”


“and if they haven’t got the money?”


"They / to eat another drug."


/ you give them a different drug, sometimes not the best drug.”

The staff working here get paid less than 20 pounds a month.

为了表明自己做个学术派小小跟班的决心,首次回答学术性问题
原帖由 liuxian198512 于 2008-4-2 18:18 发表 bring......to one's knees是什么意思?

使某人臣服的意思,文中应该是 bring the country to its knees,意为使整个国家屈服于他(President Mugabe),解释得不好,见谅!
苍老得可以开始写回忆录了……
巍巍岳麓,滔滔湘水,惟楚有才,于斯为盛……

穆大叔这个小小跟班做得不到家,bring sth to its knees还有个意思是使。。。瘫痪

哇塞,全要讲出来啊!
那个例句:
The bombing was supposed to bring the country to its knees. 不是做那个to deafeat a courtry...这个解释的例句么?

哦,偶明白了,这里确实瘫痪更合适,偶看全文很多细节体现了这个虾米President的铁腕政策,偶以为做使臣服解。
