Zimbabwe's New President Promises To Compensate White Farmers That Lost African Land

Some would applaud such a move as a step toward unity in Zimbabwe,



Emmerson Mnangagwa appealed for national unity and promised compensation for dispossessed white farmers as he sought to draw a line under the Robert Mugabe era in his inaugural speech as president of Zimbabwe.

I notice he is not giving the farms back! My bet is compensation will be based on what the property was worth then. These farms were seized by former Rebel troops and I doubt they cared if they belonged to the local tribe.

Where will he get the money? Mugabe put everything he could in offshore bank accounts. Will they get this money back as well?

The new leader's niece used to work for me. Lots of well wishers on her Facebook page all of a sudden.

Anyway good that compensation is being given to the farmers. Helps establish the rule of law and property rights which are needed if Zimbabwe is going to get the inward investment that it requires.

Allowing them a public execution of Mugabee would be the first start to making amends.

Perhaps a hero has risen in Mr Emmerson Mnangagwa,

White Zimbabwean Farmer Has Land Returned Under New Government

Zimbabwe President Emmerson Mnangagwa ordered that a white Zimbabwean farmer evicted from his land in June be allowed to return, signaling a shift in land-ownership policy from predecessor Robert Mugabe.

Mnangagwa has also ordered an end to the intimidation and eviction of farmers, regardless of race, with immediate effect, presidential adviser Chris Mutsvanga said Thursday.

Robert Smart, evicted from his Lesbury Estate farm in the eastern Manicaland province by then-governor Mandi Chimene, can return immediately, Mutsvanga said by phone interview from the capital, Harare.

Chimene’s whereabouts aren’t currently known, while a religious leader who participated in the eviction was “told to leave the farmer alone,” Mutsvanga added. Several ministers and governors loyal to Mugabe, like Chimene, have disappeared from public view since Nov. 15, when Zimbabwe’s military briefly took control of the country.

One of Mnangagwa’s key challenges will be to revive an agricultural industry that collapsed following the Mugabe-sanctioned seizure of mostly white-owned commercial farms starting in 2000, causing food shortages and slashing export earnings and tax revenue.

Let's hope things improve now Mugabe's gone.
When Rhodesian Prime Minister Ian Smith (an ex-WW2 Spitfire pilot) declared Independence from Britain in 1965 it was one of the worst political decisions in history because the clever black nationalists knew Britain wouldn't now be obliged to help him, so they began a 15-year guerilla war which they eventually won, and renamed the country Zimbabwe and it sank back into the jungle under Mugabe.
In short, Britain left Smith hanging out to dry, serves him right..

I have no idea what the wheel barrel loads of billion dollar bills are going to be worth on the International Market.
