#2 Even if a few return, it will still be government land. Long term, 99 year agricultural leases produce money for the government on both ends.

#6 Government officials now admit the campaign of farm invasions that began in 2000 was a mistake.

I'd ask for financial compensation in exchange for 'coming home' (wink wink, nudge nudge), wait for the check to clear, then fuck 'em over by not coming back.

"Now we're even."

#9 Do they think White Farmers have magic powers? Why can't a few locals learn farming techniques? Very sad.

#13 Geez, why would any white land owner go back to Southern Rhodesia???

Hundreds were murdered, thousands were imprisoned. Land was seized. Bank accounts were frozen. The farm invasion policy actually began years earlier than 2000. It was just not "official" policy until then.

I spent some time in Rhodesia and I can tell you that Mugabe's thugs did horrific things to white land owners and their families. They tried to organize a self defense militia and we tried to train them but the do-gooders in Washington, the UK and other European countries kept the resources they needed for self defense from reaching them.

It was one jump from a massacre or genocide, whatever you want to call it. Of course, because the land owners were white, the entire brutal episode was vastly under reported and essentially swept under the rug.
