ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the white land-owning minority in Malawi and growing sentiment against them. When Malawi became independent from Britain in 1964, some estates stayed in the hands of British citizens. White landowners have been violently pushed off their farms by Robert Mugabe in neighboring Zimbabwe and politicians in Malawi have praised Mugabe's expropriation. In truth, it is poor blacks who most often are the victims of corrupt land reform.
