Kasukuwere Accuses ED Mnangagwa of Seizing Mazowe ConCorpia Farm
Saviour Kasukuwere, former Zanu PF national political commissar, has raised allegations against President ED Mnangagwa’s administration, accusing them of seizing his ConCorpia Farm in Mazowe. According to Kasukuwere, the alleged retaliation stems from his failed presidential bid in the recent harmonized elections.
Property Targeted for Takeover
Saviour claims the government aims to seize his properties, citing a suspicious fire on his citrus plantation as evidence. Involved in a legal dispute over farm ownership, former minister accuses war veteran Ephanos Madzimunyi of invading the property. He also criticizes the police for not enforcing a High Court eviction order.
National police spokesperson, Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi, denies any knowledge of the alleged arson. He asserted that he is unaware of the situation.
Spokesperson Blames Lawlessness
Jaqueline Sande, Kasukuwere’s spokesperson, blames the inferno on lawlessness and the government’s disregard for the rule of law. Sande confirms that an intruder unlawfully occupies part of the citrus plantation, causing operational disruptions and property damage.
Losses Incurred and Failure to Enforce Court Order
The devastating fire resulted in the destruction of Zesa cables, electric poles, irrigation equipment, and the entire citrus crop. Sande blames the government for failing to enforce the court order that would have compelled the unlawful occupant to vacate the premises. She highlights the lack of police support when attempting to enforce the court order.
While the government denies any involvement in the fire, former minister and his spokesperson continue to assert that the incident is part of a larger pattern of government persecution and disregard for the rule of law. The legal dispute over the farm ownership remains unresolved, leaving Kasukuwere’s property and future in limbo.
