Zanu PF says the land reform and the indigenisation programmes will never be reversed as the revolutionary party is merely addressing colonial imbalances in wealth ownership.

The Zanu PF Secretary for Land Reform and Resettlement Dr Ignatius Chombo was responding to claims by the MDC-T leader Mr Morgan Tsvangirai that he will reverse the indigenisation programme once in power.

Dr Chombo, who was addressing residents of Harare at the on-going meetings organised by the Zanu PF Harare Provincial leadership said the land reform programme has benefited thousands of indigenous Zimbabweans who were being exploited by the white commercial farmers.

"You have heard for yourselves the MDC-T which has no election manifesto is saying they want to stop the indigenisation programme and the land reform programme.

"They (MDC-T) want to reverse these people-oriented policies and programmes to serve the interests of its colonial masters," said Dr Chombo.

The MDC-T has always been against the indigenisation programme and last year launched their counter programme: 'Jobs, Upliftment, Investment, Capital and Environment policy', (JUICE) which has been a major flop.

The Head of State and Government and Commander-in-Chief of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces, President Robert Mugabe has always strongly highlighted that the indigenisation and economic empowerment programme is a fundamental policy that will never be reversed.
