Zanu PF supporters to vacate Norton stands

Posted by Tayana

Thousands of Zanu-PF youths who were allocated residential stands at Kingsdale Farm in Norton will now have to vacate the farm after Government conceded in the High Court last week that the land was a private property belonging to Maparahwe Properties Pvt Ltd.Justice Hlekani Mwaeyera granted an interim order stopping the acquisition of the farm with the consent of Local Government, Public Works and National Housing Minister Saviour Kasukuwere.

Maparahwe Properties had sued Minister Kasukuwere and Urban Development Corporation that had been brought in the farm to oversee the parceling out of the residential stands.

However, during the hearing, Kasukuwere realised that it was legally untenable and constitutionally indefensible to take over the farm in the face of a Constitutional Court order, which ordered Government to withdraw its acquisition of the land resulting in him not filing papers opposing the interim order.
