A very consistent policy

A bit too late:

Zimbabwe's central bank chief has called for a halt to farm invasions, calling those who try to seize land "criminals", a newspaper reported on Friday.

"The invasions are totally unacceptable and should be stopped forthwith by whoever is doing it," Reserve Bank governor Gideon Gono told the privately-owned weekly Zimbabwe Independent.
"Those invading farms are now criminals," he said.

Not all agree:

State Security and Lands Reform Minister Didymus Mutasa has also said that land reform would continue until all farms had been acquired by the state.

"Naturally we are going to acquire all land in Zimbabwe, make no mistake about that.

One US dollar today is worth 75.000 Zimbabwe dollars.
