Reports from Zimbabwean say white farmers who were forcefully removed from their property by former President Robert Mugabe’s government are getting “poorer and sick”, as their hopes for compensation continue to fade.

Thousands of white Zimbabwean farmers were forced off their land by violent state-backed mobs or evicted in dubious legal judgments, supposedly to help black people marginalised under British colonial rule.

The farms, were often allocated to Mr. Mugabe’s allies leaving tens of thousands of rural labourers out of work and sending the economy into a tailspin as food production crashed.
