  1. i urge the gvt of zimbabwe to support this allocation of farms to farmers this will create job in zim please zanupf take this opportunity and protect it your people need jobs

  2. I am Australian but have a strong interest in Zim Politics. I am a bit confused though, will Farms be returned to the Farmers that owned farms iduring the original Land acquisition or Famers who received those Farms post acquisition?

  3. It is welcome news that SA farmers are ready to start farming in Zimbabwe.Food security is what is needed most.This could have been started a long time back but nevertheless the undertaking is applauded.What we need is speed and transparency.It is very easy for people to start standing by Zanu again if this is done with the love of the people at heart.
