War over land – Sikhala

The MDC (Mutambara) says it is going to be a mammoth task to reverse the Mugabe regime's land reform programme even when the opposition comes to power in next year's presidential election.
Addressing African academics, professionals and business people in Jozi last week, the party's MP for St Ma

ry’s, Job Sikhala, said reversing the land issue would spark civil war in Zimbabwe.
“Even if we come to power tomorrow or next year, we can not afford to reverse the land issue. We ca not afford to displace the more than 600 000 beneficiaries of this programme otherwise a civil war would be unavoidable,” he said.
“All the war veterans, chiefs, former army chefs, police commanders and Central Intelligence Organisation (CIO) resettled there are now proud owners of the land. If we tell them we have reversed the land policy, what would happen?” – Own correspondent
