According to Zimbabwean Land Minister John Nkomo, private ownership of land is to be abolished in that country. Instead, all land will be vested in the state and individuals will be able to lease it. So that's what Mugabe meant by giving the land back to the people. What a joke. The idea that, in a country as corrupt as Zimbabwe, this will somehow convert the country's land into a public asset is laughable. The real question to my mind is who will be collecting the rent. I suspect that Mr Nkomo will be a prime beneficiary.
