Rusape(ZimEye) ZANU PF’s long serving member and government minister Didymus Mutasa’s has been named in the latest farm invasions in the Rusape area as agents descended on commercial farms in the past few days and are now arbitrarily terrorising every farmer they meet.
A farmer who sent a message to this reporter Saturday morning spoke of how Mutasa has threatened a number of farmers through a mob gang who are now patrolling the area and issuing ultimatums on the farmers.
Mutasa comes from the Rusape area, where his son was also buried recently.
Coming back tonight
Said the farmer yesterday morning:
“…they are now busy with Dolf DuToit. Started this morning with him and they said they are coming back tonight, we will keep you up to date.”
Farmer can’t take equipment with him
Gavin Woest is packing and he can’t take any equipment with him…” said the witness who revealed the plight of one farmer, Gavin Woest who was barred from taking his farming equipment with him.
Woest was told to leave his farm with neither a court order nor a government listing directive which are legal requirements for a lawful removal. According to Zimbabwe’s constitution, valued compensation is also supposed to be paid before a person can be removed by force. (ZimEye, Zimbabwe)
