Zanu-PF distances itself from Rusape farm invasion

Zanu-PF Manicaland province deputy chairman Joseph Mujati distanced his party from evictions at Lesbury Farm in Rusape which saw Robert Smart, and his workers were forced out of their homes by armed police to pave way for  cleric Trevor Manhanga.

Mujati said that the invasion was as a result of a High Court order by the Sheriff of the High Court. Said Mujati:

Zanu PF’s position remains that new land invasions are against the law and are, therefore, illegal and will not be tolerated. Land reform in Zimbabwe is a continuous process and what was witnessed at Lesbury Farm should not be seen as a fresh farm invasion, but the enforcement of a High Court order by the Sheriff of the High Court. Zanu PF had no hand whatsoever in the enforcement of the order. I, Joseph Mujati, the Zanu PF vice-chairman for Manicaland, can confirm I was not anywhere near Lesbury Farm neither was Zanu PF represented in any capacity by anyone on this particular day.

He also distanced himself from one Charles Mujati and said that they were not related. Mujati also said that Charles does not represent Zanu-PF.
