Title   Report on internally displaced farm workers: survey Kadoma, Chegutu and KweKwe districts
Author Zimbabwe Community Development Trust
Edition PDF
Published Harare: ZCDT
Year 2003-02-01
Pages 24
Abstract This report is an analysis of the situation of farm workers and their families, and surveys three districts housing several commercial farms which were invaded and later gazetted for resettlement. Some are still, on a lower scale, operational, some divided into plots, and some taken over by high-ranking ZANU (PF) members.
It concludes, amongst other things, that the displaced farm workers and their families are facing very difficult conditions socially and economically, and need urgent assistance, above all food. They are innocent victims of a problem first created by the colonial government as far back as the 1930s, and punished by more injustice by the ZANU(PF) government to "correct" this colonial legacy.
