Mujuru’s daughter grabs farm

HARARE -Kumbirai Madzima, the daughter of vice-president, Joyce Mujuru, and her husband Tapiwa have reportedly kicked farmer Darryl Zietmann off his property, Ashcott farm, situated on prime agricultural land about 150km northeast of Harare.
Tapiwa Madzima denied that they were already occupying

the farm, saying the couple had applied but were still waiting “to get a farm like any other citizen”.
Mujuru herself is known to be a staunch supporter of the government’s expulsion of white farmers, and has herself benefited from the policy, living on the requisitioned farm, Alamein, 70km south of Harare.
And while the land resettlements continue unabated, President Robert Mugabe has recently warned that new black farmers should produce food on farms taken from whites or have the land seized by the government.
Former Grain Marketing Board chief executive, now opposition Movement for Democratic Change secretary for agriculture, Renson Gasela, has expressed his concern that most of the land reform beneficiaries “haven’t got the slightest idea about farming”. -Staff reporter
