Zimbabwe to pay white farmers $3.5bn in land compensation deal

Zimbabwe has agreed to pay $3.5B in compensation to white farmers whose land was expropriated to resettle black families. However, given the govt. does not have the funds, the compensation agreement has laid down issuing long-term bonds and jointly approaching international donors. Around 4,500 white farmers were evicted and their land redistributed to about 300,000 black families.

Now I'm not sure on this but isn't their currency hyper inflated, how much is the exchange on that.

Aha, so business as usual in this world of white/ european hyper privilege: compensation for those who got wealthy through colonial oppression of Zimbabwe. When slavery was abolished wworldwide , it was the slave owners who got compensated.. After the Holocaust , Jewish survivors, forced labourers and others got compensated, and rightly so.. But never the Descendants of African slaves . Not even in 2020 is it a serious matter for White Americans and Europeans. Why not?
