The province has had a relatively quiet weekend up to midday Sunday.  There have been numerous "voter education" rallies in the province over the weekend, but all seem to have passed without major incident.  There has been some focus of attention on the listed farms near Harare but the police have assisted where necessary.
Mazowe / Concession:  A large group visited Spa Farm  yesterday demanding that the owner vacate by Monday as the farm had been listed for compulsory acquisition.  The response from the police was good and the situation has been defused.  A truck from Watakai was delivering paprika to Chegutu on Friday but was commandeered by ZANU PF supporters at Selous and only returned to the farm by lunch time yesterday.
