The Namibian government announces that it will soon take the land of some white-owned farms and give it blacks. A small white minority owns 90 percent of the African nation's commercial farmland. Some fear Namibia is following the same path as Zimbabwe, which launched a violent and chaotic farm takeover program four years ago that destroyed much of that country's commercial agriculture.
