91 years old Robert Mugabe Zimbabwe President admitted that his land reforms was wrongly executed by giving ill equiped and inexperienced farmers large parcels of land
he said this in a radio Interview with the Zimbabwe Broadcasting corporation on his 91st birthday.

  “I think the farms we gave to people are too large. They can’t manage them,” Mugabe said, referring to black farmers who benefited from the land reforms.
“You find that most of them are just using one third of the land,” he said, a surprisingly candid admission of charges that the reforms were poorly executed.
The land reforms of Mugabe in 2000 was accompany with violence against the white Zimbabweans and was aimed at resettling at least 4000 blacks.
Zimbabwe now face economic hard time and food shortage since the land beneficiaries lack both farm  equipment and expertise to produce,the country now rely on Zambia on grain.
Mugabe before blamed under performance of Agricultural Production on eractic rain, Climate change, and western sanctions.
