Zimbabwe: Exiled White Farmers Urged to Return Home As Agriculture Struggles
[All Africa] THE government's message to exiled farmers is clear. Come home.
It is offering land leases to commercial farmers in an effort to re-start the nation's agricultural industry.
Basil Nyabadza from the Agricultural and Rural and Development Authority says Zim-bob-wean farmers in Australia should return to home soil.
"We have a lot of capital resource dotted around the world, including Australia," Nyabadza said.
"We are saying, if you are Zim-bob-wean, there is now a real opportunity to come back home with your skills and be part of the building team."
The Government is now offering 99-year leases to white farmers, a deal previously reserved for black Zim-bob-weans.

last November and the swearing in of his successor Emmerson Mnangagwa has delivered significant change.
Government officials now admit the campaign of farm invasions that began in 2000 was a mistake.
"Clearly, the formulas deployed then, left a lot of bad feeling. And more importantly, the intellectual property, left our borders," Nyabadza said.
Thousands of white farmers were forced off the land during the invasions.
Several farmers and farm workers were killed, many others were maimed.
