'Blinking' is a (British) adjective which is added before a noun to express annoyance (according to the Oxford Dictionary of English), but in this case was used to place emphasis (I wasn't annoyed). 😉

The government of Zimbabwe may claim that the population of the country is over 16 million, but at least 5 million of those people are in fact living in neighbouring countries, trying to make a living - which is near impossible in Zim.
