Zimbabwe Land Commission chairperson, Tendai Bare has said that the commission has been working with white farmers to help them get 99-year leases for their land. Said Bare,
We are also working with these farmers to see whether they have documents to allow them to stay on the farm so that we recommend them to be given 99-year leases. There is also a programme by Lands ministry where white farmers who are interested in farming can embark on joint venture programmes with the beneficiaries of the agrarian reform programme…We have discovered that the black farmers still lack access to cheap loans from banks. The interest for those who have been able to access is too high. They won’t be able to service them at the end of the season.
