Zimbabwe government land seizures continue

Zimbabwe government land seizures continue

HARARE, Zimbabwe, Oct. 25 (UPI) — Suspected Zanu PF activists invaded CAPS 
Holdings owner Frederick Mutanda’s farm in Mutorashanga, Zimbabwe.

CAPS is a debt-ridden Zimbabwean pharmaceutical company.

Mutanda on Tuesday accused Zimbabwe Minister of Local Government and 
National Housing Ignatius Chombo, who is Zanu PF secretary for lands, of 
sending Zanu PF militants to invade his Ravie Farm in Mutorashanga.

Zimbabwean Mashonaland West provincial Chairman John Mafa stated however, “I 
have never spoken to anybody about Mutanda’s farm but he was told to produce 
papers that prove he is the rightful owner by (Mashonaland West governor and 
resident minister) Faber Chidarikire.

“Personally, I have nothing against Mutanda or anybody else, so I never sent 
people to go and invade his farm. What I remember is that when I sat on the 
lands committee, Mutanda was asked to produce documents that proved his 
ownership and I’m not sure he has done that yet,” Newsday news agency 
reported Wednesday.

What makes the case unusual is that land expropriation was a Zanu PF tactic 
primarily utilized against Zimbabwe’s white farmer minority, rather than 
against black Zimbabwean government officials.
