ZANU PF Youths to invade Grace Mugabe's farms

ZANU PF Youths to invade Grace Mugabe's farms
Published: 17 June 2019 (87 Views)
ZANU PF Deputy Secretary for Youth Affairs Lewis Matutu has given a former First Lady Grace Mugabe two weeks to hand over 15 farms that she owns so that they can be given to the Youths.

Matutu was reacting to statements by President Emmerson Mnangagwa who said Grace owns 16 farms.

"Now that is has been revealed that Grace Mugabe owns 16 farms  we are demanding that she chooses one and the other 15 be subdivided into 10 hectare plots for youths within two weeks."Matutu said in his ultimatum.

Matutu added that no one was going to stop the youths in their pursuit.

"Young people need land and we are not going to allow anybody to block our way."

Zimbabwe went through a land redistribution exercise from 2002 which affected approximately 4,500 white farmers.

While thousands of black Zimbabweans were given pieces of land, most of the prime land went to high ranking political elite, who amassed more than one farm.

The seizure of white-owned farms was adopted by President Robert Mugabe's government, in a process that triggered the country's economic woes.

The land take overs, which were at first violent, did not only attract sanctions from western countries, but also resulted in the collapse of local industries which depended on agricultural produce.
