commented on Mugabe and the White Farmers
Almost a guaranteed outcome when you take export oriented large farms and convert them to subsistence and small holder market farming. These may feed your family. They may even pay school fees for your kids. But they're not going to pay back loans made to the displaced farmers. Add in the balance of trade issues that follow a switch from tobacco to maize and your banking crisis deepens as other sectors that require hard currency inputs start to fail.
