THE controversy surrounding ownership of Meikles Park located in the City of Mutare has taken a new twist with the National Social Security Authority (NSSA) claiming to be the rightful owners of the property.

NSSA’s claims this week came hardly a month after the Ministry of Local Government took over the land and awarded it to a top Zanu PF official and Mutare businessman, Esau Mupfumi, on a four-year lease.

In a statement, NSSA accused the council of double-dipping.

Part of the statement reads: “NSSA wishes to place it on record for the benefit of the public that it purchased Meikles Park from City of Mutare and is currently involved in a civil court dispute with City of Mutare over the ownership of Meikles Park.

“NSSA further makes it clear that it obtained a High Court order interdicting the disposal or transferring of Meikles Park to any party whatsoever pending the final determination of the case No. HC11346/11 between NSSA and City of Mutare regarding ownership of Meikles Park.”

Last month, the Ministry of Local Government offered the land in question to Stallvic Enterprises, a company linked to Mupfumi, under a four-year lease agreement. As part of the lease agreement, Mupfumi’s firm is expected to pay an annual rental of $68 100.

Contacted for comment yesterday, Mutare mayor Tatenda Nhamarare admitted the mix-up and said the city had offered to compensate NSSA with another piece of land from the 100 hectares promised by government.

“As a local authority, we have no mandate to stop the Ministry (of Local Government) from taking that piece of land,” Nhamarare said.

“However, as we are going to receive 100 hectares, we are going to compensate NSSA out of that land we are going to get from government,” he said.

The land is on the periphery of the city near Fern Valley.

However, it remains to be seen whether NSSA will be agreeable to the new land offer by the city council.

  2. Are the ministry the city council defying the high court order. What makes them think that NSSA will accept the alternative land in a location beyond the mountains far from the miserable crowd?

  3. Chombo is corrupt why would he wrestle land from a GVT entity to give to an individual. When we smell a rat why is it we always hear the same corrupt people. Follow the ZESA example GVT entities first before individuals. What does the GVT benefit if not chombo and mupfumi pasi nemi pasi nemi. Land should go to NSSA cause NSSA represents the people we the people have eyes and if open your ears you will hear that the voters are not happy about this.

  4. IF ITS PROVED TRUE THAT NSSA OWNS THE LAND MUTARE CITY IS GUILTY OF FRAUD FOR LEASING LAND THATS NOT THEIRS WITHOUT THE CONSENT OF THE RIGHTFUL OWNER WHICH RENDERS THE DEAL NULL AND VOID AB INITIO.

  5. Indeed, the next government will have a hack of a job to reverse and clean all that rubbish! From a jewel of Africa to a wasteland, and its so frustrating and boring. Other countries in Africa now have commuter trains, and we are stuck with these death traps called commuter omnibuses, and no one, from Mugabe to the last ZANU PF supporter, is ashamed of it. They are specializing in asset grabbing, as they sense their days are numbered. In the mean time Kondozi, CSC, Zisco, Feruka, MBPM, Zimboard, and pretty much everything else is now closed. Thanks to Mugabe and his gang!
