Mugabe to boost black ownership of economy

Zimbabwe's ruling ZANU-PF party says some 1000 foreign-owned companies will be targetted for the purpose.

    Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe's ZANU-PF party has said it will increase black Zimbabweans' ownership of the economy in the next five years.

    The party, which won a landslide in the recent polls, said some 1000 foreign-owned companies including banks and mines will be targetted for the purpose.

    But the announcement has added to the investors' concerns about its political dominance.
