Zimbabwe Pays U.S.$53 Million Compensation to White Farmers

The Zimbabwean government has so far paid 100 former white farm owners, though it maintains it will only pay compensation for infrastructure and improvements on farms and not for the land. President Emmerson Mnangagwa sees the paying of compensation as key to mend ties with the West and has set aside more funds in 2020's budget to that end.
