BIPA/BIT showdown looms

BACKGROUND: Read this and this.

The Zimbabwe government is set on confisticating any farms they want to EVEN those that fall under the BIPA/BIT clauses. Security and Lands minister (Didymus Mutasa--who's now best poised to succeed Mugabe) says the government can and will annex any farms they want to becuase there is no clause/treaty that specifically addresses land. See this.

Land ownership in Zimbabwe is set to change as ZANU-PF has intended that it wants to pass legislation that will turn all land over to the state making way for 99 year leases.
