Zimbabwe was once so rich in agricultural produce that it was dubbed the 'bread basket' of Southern Africa, now it relies on food aid to feed many of it's people. The massive reduction in agricultural productivity is blamed by many on a policy of land redistribution that has resulted in once productive farms being left derelict. The land reform program was meant as an effort to more equitably distribute land between the historically disenfranchised blacks and the minority-whites. In practice though many of the best farms were forcibly taken from farmers, both black and white, who were perceived to oppose the ruling party and handed to politically connected figures who were often already very wealthy.
