World news from The Times and the Sunday Times - Times Online: "WHEN Rob Clowes’s farm was nationalised last Wednesday, he continued repairing a pump and supervising the planting of coffee seedlings. Soon there will be £20,000 worth of imported avocado seedlings to go in, and 63 acres to be planted with macadamia nuts.

The coffee will be ready for harvest in 2008, and a couple of years later the avocados and nuts will be ready for export to Europe. His daughter, Jemma, will be set for grade 1 at the little school that the Chipinge commercial farming community built, down the road from his 380-acre farm, Destiny.

But not if Didymus Mutasa, Zimbabwe’s Minister of Land Reform and State Security, has anything to do with it. “White farmers are dirty and should be cleared out,” he said on Sunday. “The Government will not hesitate to take their farms to resettle the black people.”"
