    Namibia's government is considering seizing land from foreign and white owners to speed up its redistribution programme.

    Since independence 27 years ago, territory taken by colonial rulers has been bought back by the government and given to its farmers. But its now struggling to cover the costs.

    Farmers are complaining that the resettlement is taking too long and is not being carried out fairly.

    Al Jazeera's Fahmida Miller reports from Keetmanshop, Namibia.
