Former Mashonaland East Resident Minister and current ZANU PF MP for Uzumba, Simbaneuta Mudarikwa is set to lose his farm in Wenimbi after the Minister of Lands notified him of his intention to withdraw his offer letter.
Mudarikwa is accused of multiple farm ownership. He got the farms under the Land Reform Programme at the turn of the millennium.
Part of the letter written to Mudarikwa by Agriculture Minister Perrance Shiri reads as follows:
Notice is hereby given that the Ministry of Lands, Agriculture, Water, Climate and Rural Resettlement intends to withdraw the offer of land made to you in respect of subdivision 3 measuring 67.50HA of Wenimbi Farm in the district of Mashonaland East province.
ZANU PF bigwigs are accused of being multiple farms owners following the chaotic land reform program. Mudarikwa’s case could just be a tip of the iceberg.
