To be fair, just and reasonable, it would be conscionable to Zimbabwe, if the UK government contributed a certain percentage of the money to be paid as compensation to Zimbabwe displaced white farmers.

That is because the land in dispute was taken from the indigenes by force.

The good thing is that the UK government acknowledges that. That means negotiations for the UK government to pay part of the compensation money is plausible .

In fact its just a matter of reminding the UK of the promise that they made in 1980, that they were going to compensate Zimbabwe for the land taken from them by the Pioneer Column. Now that Britain wants out of Europe, it would be easy for that to happen. Thus because there will be no Europe influence to impede the negotiations.
