Both the M&G and the SA Sunday Times are running a SAPA article about the positive effects that Zimbabwean farmers who've moved to Mozambique have had on that country. Apparently 100 or so Zim farmers have moved to the Manica province of Mozambique, creating over 4000 jobs in the process.

Interestingly, the article claims that all land in Mozambique belongs to the state and thus the farmers are having to lease the land. This seems a rather precarious basis upon which to establish a commercial farm although, given the vagaries of 'private' property in Zimbabwe, perhaps not a bad thing.
