|Evicted Farmers Continue to Feed Zimbabwe|
In a supreme irony, the bulk of the imported maize being supplied to starving Zimbabweans from Zambia is coming from the white commercial farmers who were evicted from their lands during Mugabe's chaotic land invasions. Some of the dispossessed farmers moved to Zambia where they developed new farms. It is now being found that most of the 300,000 tonnes of maize imported from Zambia to feed the millions of Zimbabweans facing starvation, comes from these farmers who had their land stolen by Mugabe's ZANU-PF government.
The Zimbabwe Minister of Agriculture, Joseph Made, reported that 45% of Zimbabwe maize crop planted last season was a complete write-off. Zimbabwe needed at least 2.2 million tonnes of maize to feed itself annually, but since the chaotic land reform programme begun in the year 2000, over 5,000 white commercial farmers had been evicted and their homes and farmland looted. Most of these farms have fallen into rack and ruin.
