Eddie Cross: The Importance of Land Tenure and secure Property Rights

By Eddie Cross After 40 years of Independence about 4 million hectares remain under freehold title but the rest is now state land. This change was effected by a land reform program designed to give the indigenous population control of the land and some compensation to the former farmers has now been agreed. The question is what to do with what has been taken over? The Tribal Areas remain impoverished and its people desperately poor, with nearly 10 million hectares of land severely damaged and threatened with desertification. The former commercial farming Districts are in the majority abandoned and unproductive with farm output down 70 per cent except for tobacco which has been supported by the international tobacco companies.
