Jabulani Sibanda declares war on black multiple farm owners

ZIMBABWEANS should brace for more invasions of black-owned farms to correct land ownership inequalities among the majority, war veterans’ leader Jabulani Sibanda has said.

Sibanda yesterday declared “war” on black farmers with multiple farms or big farms saying war veterans would not allow any black person to have more land than others. The combative war veterans’ leader made the remarks in response to an inquiry by our sister paper Southern Eye on whether his association had sanctioned ongoing invasions of black-owned farms.

Sibanda said war veterans had not sanctioned black-on-black farm invasions, but at the same time indicated that they would “not be colonised by other blacks”.
“I have no report of the on-going farm invasions of black-owned farms and it is difficult for me to condemn or condone them. We do not have such an operation as war veterans,” Sibanda said.

“However, this is not to say we will fold our hands and allow other blacks to have multiple farms or excess land while others have nothing. No, this we will not allow.

“We will not allow any black person to have more land than others. We will not be colonised by any other black person.

“We don’t care whether they are ministers, Zanu PF officials or have a military background because that alone is not an excuse to have more land than any other black person.”

President Robert Mugabe’s repeated calls for party officials to adhere to the one-man-one farm policy and limiting farm sizes have largely been ignored.
A number of Zanu PF ministers, officials, police and army chiefs are reported to be stubbornly clinging on to their many farms after grabbing several thousands of hectares of properties.

“This is a struggle; this is war against multiple black farm owners. Some of them have farms registered under the names of their children who are not even in the country.

“We will take such farms and redistribute them. We are against land hoarders and people who have too much land; excess land to be precise,” Sibanda said.

It was not clear if Sibanda and the other war veterans would also act against the likes of First Lady Grace Mugabe, who now owns vast tracts of land in the prime farming area of Mazowe.

Grace recently threatened Justice deputy minister Fortune Chasi for daring her to stop further grabbing more land in the area for the benefit of ordinary villagers and other farmers in the area.

    We will take you seriously kwete zvamuri kuita targeting perceived opponents like Dabengwa

  5. kkkkk this is just propaganda, tangai kwa chombo then we will take u seriously.

    1. Liyitshaye esikhonkosini lapho…kabaqale khonale phezulu sibili!!!

  6. Takabvira kare tichizvitaura izvi. Munhu mumwechete here kuita maFarms 10 vamwe tisina kana one. We went to war to fight the whites because of colonialism and oppression. If you look at what these greedy leaders are doing you can see that they are self enriching themselves and their families and relatives. Jabulani is going to be hated by the bigwigs because of exposing yet another corruption. Operation one farm one man must start. The government must the unproductive farms. Kwete kurisora nekubata mbeva mumapurazi. Vose varikupisa sora nemiti ngavatorerwe minda.

The government must take the unproductive farms and give it to able farmers. Kwete kurimasora nekubata mbeva mumapurazi. Vose varikupisa sora nemiti ngavatorerwe minda.

  8. So, Jabulani, when are you going to invade the multiple farms owned by Bob and Grace?

  9. My sentiments exactly Jabulani….but am not sure wether its suppose to be one man one farm or one family one farm. The success of land reform is hinged on land audit and property right…rule of law. As things stand we will witness a civil strife . The primary objective of the reform was to decongest maruzevha. land audit is of paramount importance.

  10. Is this guy the vice-president now? His word has the power of law. Lawless Zimbabwe. How can you have someone who is unelected issuing decrees? Kana pasina property rights anyone can expel anyone at any time! Ndochiyi manje ichocho?

  11. start with Robert and Grace Mugabe.

  12. Apa maseva cde, kungoti chete kutaura kurinyore asi mukazvigona kabva munengemabaya.

  13. Ehonde katange naGrace only then will I believe them these perennial and psycopathic liars

  14. Chengozi Gwenhamo

    Tangai nepaMazowe apo paaaGushungo. Tobva taziva muri serious.

  15. Robert and Grace, the main looters wati wambosvikawo here kwavari?

  16. Good Luck Jabu cause the people with multiple are not the small guys and they flaunt them so go on and good luck

  17. if Cde Jabulani Sibanda rilly is serious abt ths, i tel u..u wil be Zim champion..thats the type and kind of leaders we want in Zimbabwe, please dnt gt our hopes high for nuthing, a man is to keep his word..will support u all th way out.

  18. Noble talk but then he has to be careful which haystack he burns coz dzimwe dzinobuda nyoka dzinoruma and tozonzwa handei ku heroes kunoradzika cde

  19. this is a ploy to steal farms from black farmers with a good crop. these farms will end up with the usual suspects.

  20. If u really mean it cde Jabulani Sibanda, I do salute n will stand with u all the way but be careful u may get involved in a car accident. We really need someone like u that is only if u are serious.

  21. These war vets should help direct us towards the value that they went to war for surely they didn’t go to war so that people live with no electricity, they didn’t go to war so that corruption reigns in Zimbabwe they should be the guiding voice towards what they fought for..

    1. War vet? Sibanda was only 10 when the war started. He is a nothing.

  22. I like the words we will not allow colonisation by other blacks.If he can start with Grace Mugabe and ensure that Robert Mugabe Jnr is not being groomed to be President of Mugabe,then the war veterans will be fighting for the people indeed.

  23. Justice Hlatshwayo had his farm taken over by Grace Mugabe masikati machena,ikapiwa mwana wake.Animal farm pa Zimbabwe.Let Grace be Chair of Women’s League and she becomes toast for electioneering.

    1. Really Kufandada…Justice Hlatshwayo, like the rest of the imvaders, never owned the farms they now call their own. Being the first one to invade a farm does not make one the legitimate owner.

  24. You morons don’t even know what colonisation means.

    A colony is when a foreign country rules over land that is not within its borders.

  25. The Drama continues ! Wrong can not correct wrong. Everything was wrong from the 1st place. Everything will be wrong until the dynasty goes. The 9th Chimurega lol.

  26. If Jabu can start with the First Family and then come to retired generals and ministers I would support him. But Jabu please don’t invade farms belonging to people who bought farms with their own money in the 1980s especially if they don’t support ZANU-PF. Its just not fair Ndoda

  30. Ndipeiwo munda, ndirikuda kurima chaizvo gore rino.

  31. you can only do it now if you have the blessing of certain chefs who want to down dress other chefs. Your desire is not genuine and will not help the majority poor citizens.This is a political gimic.

  32. Kutamba nesu chaiko. One man one farm kuti vatore ra Dabengwa chete. Grace na Bobo ozoendera Zanu yese totanga imomo akatanga ikoko toziva kuti arikurevesa tozomu supporter. Bt then again anenge ava kutofanira kufamba ne ndege nema bhasikoro. Akada zvemota angangofira mu accident mota isina damage

  33. Proper-ganda chairo. Kutamba nesu chaiko. One man one farm kuti vatore ra Dabengwa chete. Grace na Bobo akatanga ikoko ozoendera Zanu yese totanga imomo toziva kuti arikurevesa tozomu supporter. Bt then again anenge ava kutofanira kufamba ne ndege nema bhasikoro. Akada zvemota angango kika bucket mu accident mota isina damage
