The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) has condemned the Zimbabwe led President Emmerson Mnangagwa, for decision to compensate white farmers who lost their land during force eviction 2000.
Earlier this week, Mnangagwa confirmed that a landmark compensation agreement had been signed to redress injustices committed under former President Robert Mugabe’s watch.
In addition, the violent expropriation of white-owned farmland displaced an estimated 4 500 people and subsequently plunged the country into economic free-fall.
Addressing the atrocities within the context of building a new Zimbabwe which would cater to all who wish to serve the country, regardless of race or culture.
Mnangagwa described the signing of the compensation agreement as historic in many respects.
The agreement states that farmers will receive compensation for infrastructure developed on the land and will be paid 50% of the balance within the year and the rest over a five-year period.
While questions and doubts about the poverty-stricken country’s ability to make good on the compensation agreement persist.
However, the EFF condemned Mnangagwa’s decision to capitulate to pressure in a strongly-worded statement issued on Friday morning.
“We are of the firm view that Mnangagwa is either deeply misinformed about the real causes of the crisis in Zimbabwe,” said EFF.
They said rather is simply capitulating to pressure from the white supremacist world.
