HARARE – The Supreme Court has ruled that the Whitecliffe Farm take-over by 
ministry of Lands and Rural Resettlement from property developer Edward 
Pfugari was illegal and ordered the vacation of occupants within five days.

farm located on the outskirts of Harare along the Bulawayo Highway was taken 
over by the government.

Justice Ziyambi, who handled the case together with Justice Paddington Garwe 
and Yunus Omerjee, said a preliminary notice of intention to acquire the 
farm handed down in September 2004, was also null and void.

He ordered Local Government and those claiming occupation through them to 
vacate within five days.

the Land Acquisition Act in acquiring the land,” Justice Ziyambi said in the 

“Accordingly the acquisition order issued on June 15, 2006, it is null and 

The ministry of Lands and Rural Resettlement, cited as respondents in the 
case, were yesterday not represented.

The property developer took his case to the Supreme Court contesting an 
Administrative Court ruling, declaring the farm takeover as lawful. – Tendai
