Abstract Land reform in southern Africa has so far failed to address the deeply rooted social, economic and political inequalities that persist over the ownership of and access to the land. As demands for land continue to grow, the need to resolve the ‘land question’ is becoming ever more urgent. In this Comment, Lloyd Sachikonye, a specialist in agrarian and labour studies from Zimbabwe, examines post-independence approaches to land reform and their impact on the people of southern Africa. He argues that the capacity of the land to give life to the people of the region can best be harnessed by incorporating land reform within national development strategies that strive for poverty reduction and social justice.
