mugabe gives soldiers farm land


6000 soldiers to get farm land...ah, but how many want to be farmers?

In usual "land reform" programs, the land is apportioned out to all those who worked and lived on the larger each family would get a small farm...and maybe the head of the local village would be in charge of apportioning irrigation and tractors or large farm animals to each family. (HINT to farmers: Buy hand plows...and fertilize)...

The local farmers would then be encouraged to use the land and improve it...

you don't just "give away" untrained soldiers, who may not have family ties in the area, and indeed who might not want to be farmers...
