Zim Villagers Tell Zanu (PF) Politburo Members To Go Hang

Mwenezi February 8, 2011 – Villagers here openly told two Zanu (PF’s)
politburo members, Dzikamai Mavhaire and Kudakwashe Bhasikiti that they did
not support the illegal invasions of conservancies in the area.

“This not indigenisation, don’t fool us and instruct the people to destroy
their heritage in the name of indigenisation. There are a lot of things that
we can do rather than killing animals in our
conservancies for meat.

“We think someone is insane here. As the people of Mwenezi, we shall never
follow your commands on this one,” a villager who attended the meeting told
the two.”

Mavhaire and Bhasikiti said the meeting was to consult with the villagers.

“We are not forcing anyone to invade any conservancy. If you remember very
well, it’s (Titus) Maluleke (Masvingo governor) and Minister of Higher
Education Stan Mudenge, who are after conservancies- not us. We just wanted
to see how people take it and now we have our answer – the
people are hesitant,” said Mavhaire.

Mudenge told the people who gathered at Masvingo Civic Center hall about
three weeks ago that they must immediately go and invade all conservancies
and kill animals for meat purposes.

However, no conservancy was invaded despite Mudenge’s call.

The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty Animals (SPCA) provincial officer
John Chikomo has sent a stern warning saying they will arrest anyone who
will follow Mudenge’s call to invade and kill

“We are highly alert – assessing whether they have been people who have
since followed the minister’s call. We shall not hesitate to arrest and
prosecute anyone who shall be seen following these ‘mischievous’ calls to
invade conservancies due to insatiable interest for game meat,” said
