Pictures: Mazowe evictees dumped

-

Police last Tuesday evicted over 900 families in Manzou village, Mazowe. The villagers alleged they were being evicted to pave way for the setting up of a game park by the First Family.

The villagers were dumped in the open along Mvurwi Road without being allocated land to build homes. They have now been forced to camp at the gazebo at Lazy 7 Farm.

Listen to some of the evicted villagers speak here:

Below are pictures that were taken by AMH chief photographer Aaron Ufumeli at the scene on Monday, March 24.
