Zimbabwe's heated lessons on race and politics

Hosted by
Squatters are forcibly occupying white-owned land in Zimbabwe and they have the support of State President Robert Mugabe. Is this about race or politics? Are we seeing a campaign for justice or the work of a "deranged despot"? After 20 years of independence, South Africa and other countries look to Zimbabwe to see what their future may look like. Schedule guests will include a member of Zimbabwe's Commercial Farmer's Union, which is "under siege" from squatters; a writer for the Economist based in Johannesburg; a professor at the University of Witwatersrand who's a Mugabe supporter; and the Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs.
