I have never seen anything which gets to the heart of the basic problem – how can the country produce sufficient food to feed its own people and hopefully export as well?
Farms were taken away from those who knew the land and how to obtain benefit from it. They were ideologically and arbitrarily handed over to people with no tradition or experience of farming, leading to the complete breakdown of the national economy. How can this problem be reversed?
Can the country afford to wait until those who now hold the land are taught agricultural techniques? Could anybody now dare to suggest that once again thousands of people should be disinherited to hand back the land to those who were farming it previously – I presume that would be political suicide!
Until this problem is resolved I consider that all talk of mass transit schemes & Air Zimbabwe. are only hot air!
