Pictures: ‘New farmers’ evicted, homes burnt in land row

SOME 11 families at Chigumira Farm, part of Eskbank in Mazowe, Mashonaland Central Province, have been living in the open since Friday after they were reportedly evicted and their makeshift homes allegedly burnt down by the messenger of court officials accompanied by the police.

 

The families were evicted to pave way to four unnamed individuals with government offer letters giving them ownership of the 40-hectare farm.

The families were among about 50 others who invaded the farm forcing a former white commercial farmer out of the property in 2000, but they had not received offer letters for the property.

When a NewsDay crew arrived at the scene, the families had their belongings – which included household furniture and maize- stacked near the main Harare-Bindura highway. They displayed placards denouncing their eviction.

  1. muchamuka henyu mati madii, ask pamunomuka vanenge vaenda kare.

  2. I wish I could tell those people to their face that what they feel now is no different from what the previous farmer felt.They were used but, instead I sympathise with them for their stupidity and contribution to the failing of the economy.You should have seen their dances,savagely and praises for their master when they raided and killed the farmers,so what now?As sympathetic as they look,they will kill another farmer if ordered to,as long as is white and not zanu or shona?

  3. What goes around, comes around. They don’t look as violent and angry as they did in 2000. Why? They are cowards who are only brave and loud when they have a man down, outnumbered and are ready to kick him.

  4. What are a bunch of fools supposed to do with 40 hectares of land? We need someone on the land who will employ hundreds or thousands of people and bringin foreign currency by exporting surplus harvest – so we need not just this farm but all farms run properly.

    1. waakupengawokaiwe.u want to hve hundreds employed pa40 ha. asi vanenge vorima mbanje here.ko iyeyu waakuda kuvatorera aimbovepi vamwe vachitora minda.

    Wemunondo unofa nemunondo, wekudzinga achadzingwawo sembwa. Cry my beloved country, such rich prime land in the country being given to clueless peasant farmers who are only good pakutsaka mbeva chete. To correct this macommrades, I’m sorry to say this, matorero amakaita ndiwo madzingirwo amuchaitwa zvakare, pachiuya vanorima savarungu

  13. Testimony of a recent observation that we may be educated fools. After being used as tools to evict the farmer, “enter chef with all the political connections “. Ain’t nothing you can do about it.

  14. So this is how justice in Zimbabwe is working. City of Harare came to my place over a debt of 100 dollars collected my property.

    Who on earth do they think they are? Taking law into my hands is the only way.

    Arise Zimbabwe
    Aluta continua

  29. kudahasnoknikkers

    It had to be in Mazoe. The good thing with the evictees is that no matter how much they are kicked or how far they will vote for the one who evicts them time after time.

    Even if it means they live out in the open till 2018 they will vote for the man who had a roof over his head and land galore…

    Isnt that amazing…..

    except for the children born of these people I can’t feel sorry

  30. The policies of racism continues to destroy what could a great and wonderful country.
