    One of former President Robert Mugabe's most controversial policies was the land reform programme of 2000 which made it legal for black Zimbabweans to seize properties from white farmers - without compensation.

    The policy was meant to consolidate his support but resulted in thousands of white commercial farmers being driven off the land.

    They sought safety in neighbouring countries such as Zambia, where their skill and experience has had positive results.
