It has been confirmed once again that the government’s land reform program is a dismal failure.
According to researchers little success has been achieved with the state’s process of land redistribution.
Between 70% and 90% of the projects have failed and the debt is now placed on academics and politicians’ shoulders due to lack of support from the landowners.
The lack of knowledge, poor planning and internal struggles in communities are given as reasons for the failure of the projects.
Aspirations and the ability of the new landowners are obviously not taken into account. To that end, the observations of even highly developed and profitable farming enterprises were turned into ghost farms where the infrastructure has collapsed and production ceased.
However, the government maintains that they want to continue with this project, based on African culture.
