Based on 10 years of research in Masvingo province and reported in the book, Zimbabwe’s Land Reform: Myths and Realities, this series of 8 videos shows the experiences of some of the farmers who gained land following Zimbabwe’s controversial land reform from 2000. These voices from the field demonstrate that there have been some successes, and that land reform has not been the disaster that is sometimes reported.
In Part 4 of this series, Mr. Kondongwe talks about his largely positive experiences as beneficiary of a rural resettlement program. He moved from a mountaneous region where agriculture was difficult, to one where he could grow 4.5 tonnes of maize last year.
