  1. Compensation and reintegration of white farmers

Although this report is not explicitly about the conditions of white farmers after reform, compensation for them remains a major issue. It is addressed in the Abuja Agreement of 2001, and in discussions between the government and the farmers’ body, the CFU. By February 2003, compensation had been paid for only 134 farms and the government’s current budget for compensation is about Z$4.5 billion (about £3.46 million at the official exchange rate — in May 2003 the official exchange rate was Z$1,300 to £1, while the rate on the parallel market was Z$2,000 to £1). This could scarcely compensate for 40 farm properties.
