    pan, before I get called ignorant-yet again-President Mugabe of Zimbabwe has said that some form of giving farm lands and other lands back to Black Zimbabweans was his and other freedom fighters' (including Joshua Nkomo's (don't know if John is related to him))goal against the then-government of Rhodesia even back then and the white farmers would be compensated in some form?
    If so-ain't nothing new.If Joshua Nkomo or the other guy that fought against Rhodesia was elected President-I believe the same thing, maybe in a different form would still be on the table.
