Documents suggest that the Zimbabwean government is backing the invasion despite clear announcements by the state that the land reform program is now over.

The farm is in Triangle and the victim is Shane Warth who has been ordered to wind off farming activities on Lot 12 of Lot 15 of NRA by December 31 2017 to make way for a certain Solicitor Mutendi. But the development is a contradiction to what President Mnangagwa promised in November last year. His advisor Chris Mutsvangwa, announced saying: “Land reform is over. Now we want inclusiveness. All citizens who had a claim to land by birthright, we want them to feel they belong and we want them to build a new country because this economy is shattered.” BELOW WERE SOME OF THE LIVE COMMENTS BY ZIMBABWEANS FOLLOWING THE FARM TAKE-OVER:
