Zimbabwe to pay R240 million in compensation to evicted white farmers.
Financial Mail deputy editor, Sikonathi Mantshantsha says the announcement sounds more like a delayed April's fool day joke.

Former president Robert Mugabe's land reforms, where farms were seized from white commercial farmers nearly two decades ago, contributed to Zimbabwe’s economic decline, argues Mantshantsha.
