War Veterans Threaten To Kill Land Grabbers

The Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans’ Association (ZNLWVA) has vowed to defend the widows and children of war veterans in situations where they are threatened by government officials with loss of their farms.

There have been instances where the widows have lost farms after the death of the veterans whereby officials from the Lands Ministry connive with individuals to grab the farms.

Mashonaland West chapter secretary-general Mudzingaidzwa Nyikadzino Mudarikwa declared that war veterans consider those officials or individuals doing such things enemies. Said Mudarikwa:

We get mad when we are denied what is rightfully ours. We claim what is ours.

Our solemn liberation struggle pledge was to claim our land from colonialists and, therefore, to attempt to dispossess widows and children of departed liberation war heroes would be an affront to our cause.

Anyone who tries this automatically becomes our enemy. We were trained to confront and kill the enemy.

Mudarikwa said this while addressing mourners who had gathered for the burial of a senior Central Intelligence Organisation (CIO) operative, Martin Nyashanu who died on Easter Monday.

  1. Widows should utilise these farms to be compatiible with vision 2030. They should also surrender the farms back to the Lands office if they are incappable, unlike wait for a situation where a distant muzukuru to be born later in the family, while land remains idle. After a land audit, if anyone is found not to have done justice to the land since 2000, no matter the status of the economy, which is usually sited by an individual at any particular time, any person should be deemed have squandered his/her opportunity on the land. We want to move forward, not to blame sanctions for our own failures
