Finding a lasting solution to the land question in Zimbabwe remains one of the most critical issues for any government that is committed to see peace and stability return to Southern Africa's erstwhile bread basket. The land seizures of the early 1980s and the 'Iand invasions' between 1998 and 2002 were symptomatic of the fundamental flaws in the 1979 Lancaster House constitution. It failed to address the gross injustices perpetrated by colonial governments against the black majority.
