Mugabe's land reforms get thumbs up
Posted: Sunday, May 23, 2004

Delegates at a conference of southern African liberation movements have given their backing to Robert Mugabe, the Zimbabwean president's, stand on land reforms.

The conference in Harare has drawn representatives from South Africa, Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia and Tanzania.

Black empowerment groups such as the US-based December 12 Movement and the Britain-based Black United Front also attended the meeting, hosted by the ruling Zanu(PF) party.

Mugabe says his land programme has been a success but the main opposition party and aid agencies say it has severely disrupted Zimbabwe's once-prosperous agricultural sector and contributed to famine. The conference, which is also discussing international relations, democracy and good governance, has been highly critical of Western dominance and globalisation.
