Zanu PF illegally gave Norton residents private land. Landowner gets court order to evict them

Posted by Tayana

Robert Mugabe’s Zanu PF party illegally gave out private land to prospective voters in Norton ahead of a by-election they subsequently lost to independent candidate Temba Mliswa.

A private land developer, Maparahwe Properties, has since obtained an interim High Court relief to have the ruling party and its supporters evicted from the contested land.

The provisional relief order was granted by Justice Hlekani Mwayera after Maparahwe Properties approached the High Court suing Local Government minister and Zanu PF political commissar, Saviour Kasukuwere, for illegal allocation of its land to the ruling party’s supporters.

Court papers show that the Civil Division of the Attorney-General’s Office, who represented the ministry, did not oppose Maparahwe’s application,

Take notice that the first respondent (Local Government Public Works and National Housing minister) is not opposed to the interim relief being sought by the applicants (Maparahwe Properties). Further take notice that the first respondent (Kasukuwere) is, however, opposed to award of costs.
