Gwanda, June 16, 2011 – Senior Zanu (PF) officials including Senator Japhet 
Dube have invaded a gold rich wildlife conservancy leaving hundreds of 
animals in danger at Longville Ranch 10 km outside Gwanda town.

Hordes of Zanu (PF) officials and youths invaded the farm earlier this week 
under the guise of indigenisation. A white commercial farmer Nicole Terrence 
who owns the conservancy had to call the police who did nothing to stop Zanu 
(PF) youths from demarcating the area for mining purposes.

Terrence argues the area is not suitable for mining as it shelters various 
species of wildlife and any mining activity would endanger the existence of 

There are also fears that wildlife might flee the enclosure and encroach to 
a nearby highway thereby causing road carnage, many accidents along the 
Bulawayo – Beitbridge highway have been caused by stray animals.

However Zanu (PF) leaders including politburo member Abedinico Ncube spent 
the weekend coercing people to invade the farm so they can achieve economic 

Rennie Kibi the party’s secretary for Administration in Matabeleland South 
is also among the Zanu (PF) officials interested in the total takeover of 
the Ranch.

Youth in mining Council of Zimbabwe committee member Buletsi Nyathi lamented 
the illegal takeover of the conservancy saying only a few Zanu (PF) 
individuals would benefit.

“The sad thing is that gold mined there will not benefit the people of 
Matabeleland but a few greedy Zanu (PF) officials eager to grab the little 
that’s left”, said Nyathi.
