‘Stay off ex-Zanu PF mem­bers’ farms’

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - National News - Wal­ter Mswazie

ZANU-PF’S lead­er­ship in Masvingo has warned party youths against in­vad­ing farms be­long­ing to for­mer party mem­bers say­ing ev­ery Zimbabwean is en­ti­tled to land.

This comes in the wake of re­ports of the re­cent un­sanc­tioned in­va­sion of a su­gar­cane es­tate be­long­ing to op­po­si­tion politi­cian and for­mer Min­is­ter of State for Masvingo Pro­vin­cial Af­fairs Mr Ku­dak­washe Bhasik­iti in Chiredzi by some youths.

Act­ing Zanu-PF pro­vin­cial chair­man Cde Amasa Nhen­jana said the party re­spects the rule of law and would not stoop low to the ex­tent of oc­cu­py­ing other peo­ple’s farms with­out of­fer let­ters.

He said the Min­is­ter of Lands and Ru­ral Re­set­tle­ment Dr Dou­glas Mombeshora has said there must be no land in­va­sions and the party in Masvingo is in sup­port of the or­der.

“We are a law abid­ing party. All Zim­bab­weans have a right to land as Pres­i­dent Robert Mu­gabe has said at dif­fer­ent fora. We don’t con­done the be­hav­iour of some of our youths who want to tar­nish the im­age of the party through land in­va­sions,” said Cde Nhen­jana.

“When you see some youths in­vad­ing peo­ple’s farms they are not do­ing that with our bless­ings. I have heard of such com­plaints and as act­ing chair­man, I am warn­ing those who may want to play tru­ant and in­vade peo­ple’s farms in the name of Zanu-PF.

“Lands and Re­set­tle­ment Min­is­ter Dr Dou­glas Mombeshora has or­dered peo­ple not to in­vade land any­more and we abide by this or­der.”

Cde Nhen­jana said the Masvingo pro­vin­cial lead­er­ship was seized with prepa­ra­tions for the forth­com­ing Zanu-PF’s con­fer­ence to be held in December in the prov­ince and they do not ex­pect any dis­tur­bances.— @ wal­terbm­swazie2
