While the issue of Reparations is resurging in the aftermath of George Floyd's murder, Zimbabwe announced Wednesday that it had signed a $3.5 billion compensation agreement with white farmers who were removed from the stolen lands they once occupied.

The agreement would repay white farmers for farmlands that were retaken during the rise of Robert Mugabe, the former President of Zimbabwe. Some 4,500 white farmers had stolen lands taken back from them and redistributed to 300,000 Africans.

Not surprisingly, Mugabe's reclamation of these stolen lands made him a pariah with Western countries.

Much of this land was expropriated by white Europeans--who named this African country Rhodesia, after white supremacist criminal colonizer Cecil Rhodes.

The Zimbabwe government has made this decision, called the Global Compensation Deed, at a time when 7.7 million Zimbabweans are struggling with hunger according to the World Food Programme (WFP).

Zimbabwe’s Minister of Finance and Economic Development Mthuli Ncube and acting Agriculture Minister Oppah Muchinguri-Kashiri reportedly signed the agreement at President Emmerson Mnangagwa's State House offices in Harare.

Officials claim the compensation is for infrastructure improvement and not for the reclaimed lands that were stolen.

The compensation agreement is already being seen as an attempt to curry favor with European countries.
