(ZIMBABWE, S.A) JUST IN: First 28- white-farmers to receive compensation of RTGS $55,000($8,748) for land that was expropriated by Mugabe during his land reform with others to follow #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – June.23: Zimbabwe has started paying compensation to thousands of white farmers whose land was expropriated during former President Robert Mugabe’s land reform nearly two decades ago, an agriculture lobby group stated.

Twenty-eight farmers each received RTGS $55,000 ($8,748) on 21 June: Director of the Commercial Farmers Union Ben Gilpin stated, adding that more were set to receive payments on 22 June.

Last month, 737 farmers filed for the compensation, according to the Treasury.

Back in 2000, former President Robert Mugabe’s government expelled 4,500 white farmers from their property and redistributed the land to about 300,000 black families, claiming it was correcting imbalances from the colonial era.
