The supporters of Zimbabwe president Mnangagwa have taken to grabbing productive land used by commercial white farmers in the country.
According to reports of fresh farm invasions in some areas across the country.
In an interview with the Zimbabwe Independent Commercial Farmers’ Union (CFU) chief executive officer Ben Purcell-Gilpin said:
Sadly, where crops and assets offer the prospect of quick gains, for instance, such as citrus, avocados, macadamias or sugar cane that are close to harvest, there has often been an incentive to gain access for a quick return by opportunists.
Such activity or attempted behaviour causes considerable disruption to production, as well as creating a very negative impression for other investors who may be considering investing in Zimbabwe.
Most incidents affect properties which were acquired by the state, but where there are disputes over access to farms which may be new or already the subject of a long legal process that is yet to conclude.” Zimbabwe Independenthttps://newsoweto.co.za/mnangagwa-supporters-grab-productive-land-used-by-white-farmers/https://newsoweto.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/Zanu-PF.jpghttps://newsoweto.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/Zanu-PF-150x150.jpgAfricaZimbabwe
