Former first lady Grace Mugabe who last year grabbed the state-owned Mazowe Dam and barred villagers from using it has been removed from the property. The government repossessed the country’s 16th largest dam, after the fall of Grace’s husband, former president Robert Mugabe. The Zimbabwe Independent reports that leisure activities such as fishing, rowing, sailing and canoeing, which had been banned when Grace took possession of the dam are now open.
Zimbabwe National Water Authority (Zinwa) acting corporate communications and marketing manager Tsungirirai Shoriwa told the Zimbabwe Independent,
The ownership of Mazowe Dam has never been a contested issue at any time. Only access to the dam was restricted on account of security. The security situation has since been reviewed, allowing Zinwa normal access to Mazowe Dam.
