President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s government is alleged to be plotting to seize farms belonging to former ZANU Party members considered to be linked to the G40 faction.
The farms that are targeted for sequestration are those belonging to former Foreign Affairs minister Walter Mzembi, former Manicaland provincial minister Mandiitawepi Chimene and Jonathan Moyo’s former deputy at the Higher and Tertiary Education Ministry, Godfrey Gandawa. The Standard quotes its source as saying:
Mzembi is going to lose his Banquest Extension Farm in Masvingo.
Also to be seized will be Chimene and Gandawa’s farms. Kudzai Chipanga [former Zanu PF youth league leader]’s farm will be turned into yet to be established Manicaland State University.
The government has already dispossessed Robert Zhuwao, Mugabe’s nephew, of his Zvimba farm and Jonathan Moyo’s farm in Mazowe measuring 622,9 hectares.
The government last week repossessed former ZANU PF commissar Saviour Kasukuwere’s Concorpia Farm in Mazowe under controversial circumstances.
