[03/13, 21:53] Walter Mzembi SA No: International lobby on property rights and restitution is key. Harare cannot compensate whites for land and improvements, and skip you out of the list. It’s laughable

[03/13, 21:56] Walter Mzembi SA No: We have to place your issue before the USA in a manner where it becomes topical politically and linked to removal of sanctions. Equally EU. So Dhewa will be key if we package it properly

[03/13, 22:00] Mutumwa Mawere: Do you not agree that if he is put to the test in court then he will be forced to take the issue seriously? What do you think of convincing the EFF to take the front end of it?
[03/13, 22:01] Walter Mzembi SA No: As long as you don’t front it yourself the optics have to be right
[03/13, 22:02] Mutumwa Mawere: Have you read the draft affidavit by Miriam?
[03/13, 22:06] Walter Mzembi SA No: This is why I wanted to meet you so run me through some of the intimate details .
