The issue has been outstanding since two decades ago when the state authorised the violent grabbing of land from then-owners – white farmers.

The land reform programme soiled Zimbabwe’s relations with the Western international community with the United States, the United Kingdom and the European Union and their allies imposing sanctions on the country’s ruling party, companies and individuals linked to it and senior officials.
