Majority of Invited African Ministers Snub Harare Summit

The scary part:

Special Affairs Minister John Nkomo, who opened the meeting yesterday, told delegates that the government had identified 18 farms for acquisition within Harare as part of the government's controversial land reform programme.

However, Tobias Takavarasha, the director of Food, Agriculture, Natural Resources and Policy Analysis Network, said that although the government had acquired some land in urban areas, it had failed to come up with a policy on how the land should be utilised.

I'm sure the minister will personally endeavour to see this land 'utilized' properly. Now where did I put my copy of Animal farm again? My Doublespeak skills are slipping. (Or was it 1984?)
