Mugabe’s Daughter Allegedly Seizes White Farmer’s Land

via Mugabe’s Daughter Allegedly Seizes White Farmer’s Land 24.09.2014 by Thomas Chiripasi

President Robert Mugabe’s daughter, Bona, has reportedly grabbed a farm owned by a white commercial farmer in Goromonzi district, Mashonaland East province.The farmer has been ordered to move out the property as new land invasions grip the country.

When VOA Studio 7 visited Divonia Farm near Juru Growth Point, popularly known as kwaBhora on Wednesday, several army and police officers, including members of the secret service, had sealed off the farm.

The evicted farmer only identified as Hunter was also seen loading his farming equipment into lorries with the help of his former laborers. Some tractors were driven to unidentified locations in Harare. The security details also barred Studio 7 from talking to anyone at Divonia Farm where the farmer was growing seed maize and wheat.

One of Hunter’s neighbors in the farming community, who refused to be identified, told Studio 7 the evicted farmer was phoned by a senior member of the military last week advising him that Bona would be moving into his property.

Hunter’s former workers said their future is now bleak following the eviction of their employer by the president’s daughter.

The grabbing of Divonia Farm by Bona on Wednesday comes at a time when a new wave of farm invasions is being reported in the countryside, especially in the Matabeleland region.

Deputy permanent secretary in the Office of the President and Cabinet, Ray Ndlukula, has forcibly evicted David Conolly of Centenary Farm in Figtree, Matabeleland South province, despite a High Court order blocking him from taking over the farm.

Bona Mugabe’s take-over of the property means that the Mugabe family now has several farms as the president and his wife, Grace, allegedly displaced several white commercial farmers in Mazowe district when they took over some properties.

On the contrary, President Mugabe and a regional minister recently called for a moratorium on farm invasions.

The opposition Movement for Democratic Change is on record saying most of the farms that were acquired under the land reform program were parceled out to mainly Zanu PF members, especially the top brass.

Studio 7 failed get a comment from bona while Land and Rural Resettlement Minister, Douglas Mombeshora, said he was not aware of what was going on at Divonia Farm.

Meanwhile, Commercial Farmers Union president, Charles Taffs, criticized the new wave of farm invasions and land grabs saying they violated people’s rights to property as enshrined in the constitution.

Taffs called for a change of government policy on land, saying the land grabs and invasions were having a ripple effect on the country’s economic growth potential.

Some economists blame the country’s poor economic performance on the land reforms that were embarked on by the Zanu PF government in 2000.

The agrarian reforms displaced thousands of white commercial farmers and their workers while most of the new settlers did not have the expertise and resources to produce effectively.

    As a Father if this is true Robert Mugabe is putting his daughter in Harms-way. If he has read his History books he should know that a dictatorship cannot last forever. He should know what happened to Gadaffi’s children. He should also know that when the wrath of the people is unleashed it will truly be a time of madness. But no like all Dictators he thinks he will live forever. Like all dictators he thinks the people love him. Gadaffi and Saddam could have still been alive if they would have heeded warnings and fled.

      Could not have said it any better. The fact is Bona is young, educated and could build her own life through hard work rather using these vampire tactics. The son in-law is in trouble by default. He will be associated with this filth. If i were him, I would bolt now before the masses’ anger catches up with him!!!

    There is no smoke without fire. Mugabe is a disease that has been allowed like ebola to fester and infect all those close to him. Truth is when the root of this malignant disease is excised every secondary cell will die with it.
    Bona and all.

    Cry The Beloved Country!!! At this chaotic haste to acquire massive track of land, with total disregard to the severe impoverishment of those earning a living by way of employment, which is a given that they’ll all be cast away leaves one with a bitter taste never to be washed away by any mouth fresheners!!! Bona is not the first of the spoilt brats to be given land, first it was Dhokotera Vechihure Ghiresi Mugabe’s son who was parcelled out a farm taken from a ZANU pfubvu high court operative Ben Hlatshwayo, who was forcefully dislodged from what had been allocated to him for dealing court cases in ZANU pfubvu’s favour. Greed knows no limits!!! There’s no hope for the ordinary person. These chefs and their spouses, and siblings; whatever they so wish and desire they’ll get by all means necessary!!! We read that the law enforcement agents have been deployed and sealed off the farm as if national security is threatened, haaa . . . Please tinyareyi wo!!! Of all the farms you already have madii ku chigoverana pa chenyu and employ high tech farming and lead by example yokusakara nhandi Robert Matibili Mugodhoyi Mugabe muri yako yave zvipfukuto taka tarisa!!! Rewind to 1980 gore ratakawana kuzvi tonga hatina kuziva kuti muchave vapambevhu ne nhundzvatundzva! This is not independence Robert Mugabe, it’s a vice perpetuated in the name of the Zimbabweans. Mambo Robert Mugabe ngwarirai muchagokera vana moto usina kururama. It’s all very well now, it’s plausible to be a Mugabe and / or an associate of Robert Mugabe, His Imperial Majesty, The Despotic Ruler, The Unflinching Butcherer of MaNdebeles & Whites, to a lesser extent your own MaShona people, these acts of butchery and wanton brutality shall visit your bloodline!!! I rest my case and curse on you Robert Mugabe!

      The interesting part is that the Ben Hlatsawayo’s of the Courts were doing the bidding of the first family. As a High Court judge, his judgements were glaringly in favour of the first family and the establishment rather than justice. The chickens will come to roost !!!!

    The jackal will never be satisfied.It will eat, vomit, and eat its trash.While the ,other has declared Mazowe Valley her territory, the daughter has looked east.This , if true, is an act of mindless barbarism.Fresh from a PHD controvercy, the family enters into another one.Shameless!!!!!. Truelly Mugabes see Zimbabwe as personal property and its high time those in ZANU tell him to stop his destruction trail.Evil mother brings wrath to the family.I refuse to say first family.If first family is entangled in evil all times,then I begin to wonder the commoners.
    If Bona did Business Masters degree, then she got it wrong .Instead of advising the father to redeem himself, she is setting her father beyond redemption.Only when the sheep grow horns does the shepherd start watching his back.Watch out

    Theft by a common criminal. I wonder what that white traitor Stewart comberbatch thinks ? Just been promoted by his master mugarbage to the gravy train post of secretary to cabinet and president. Reward for being the dictators money launderer as a ‘ diplomat ‘ after having shafted and shopped his former colleagues when he was in smiths CIO bsap and sanction buster. No doubt comberbatch will soon be a visitor to bona stolen farm feasting on stolen braai meat !!!!!!!!!! Ironically this ” last white guy standing ” also got a farm courtesy of a now dispossessed white farmer. Pamberi mob justice street action. Pasi zpf rogues !!!!!!!…..

    Baba Jukwa's Tokoloshe 7 years ago

    Baba Jukwa’s friend – the ex Zanu Tokoloshe – says that Zanu is now in a frenzy and is completely out of control and has tortured, murdered and raped for so long that it cannot even realise that it is doing it. The Tokoloshe says that Zanu has mentally blocked out all the civilians that they murdered as “sell outs” over the last 40 years and cannot even see or remember that. Zanu is forgetting that the Tokoloshe and the Ancestral Spirits, like the people of Zimbabwe – are very patient – and that fun in Zanu is only about to begin.

    Doc is this what you are trying to warn people?

    Pictures of Libyans rejoicing are reminiscent of the outbreaks of joy that accompanied the fall of Egyptian President Mubarak and Tunisia’s Ben Ali.

    Embezzlement, corruption and killing were commonplace under the rule of these fanatics. Their overthrow stirred winds of hope and revolt across other Arab countries.

    In Eastern Europe, Romania’s Ceausescu and Yugoslavia’s Milosevic did not survive the power of popular dissent. Milosevic had the chance to resign whereas others faced deadly punishment for their crimes.

    Saddam Hussein’s gruesome hanging five years ago, was a gory reminder of Ceausescu’s grisly fate. His videotaped execution by an AK-47 rifle shot was transmitted on national television.

    Hussein’s body, the head uncovered and his neck twisted at a sharp angle was shown by Iraqi state television.

    Charles Taylor and Amin Dada were forced to flee their countries. Dada died of kidney failure, while Taylor has been replaced by a Nobel Peace Price winning President, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.

    Unlike Gaddafi, their blood-stained bodies were not broadcast on televisions and shown on the front of newspapers world-wide, but these toppled tyrants fell spectacularly from their powerful podiums, challenged by the people who once feared them.

    So that is why he was calling on his supporters to chase the remaining whites from the farms. To White Zimbabweans the naive ones who believe that they will survive by bribing Zanupf, Mugabe did not say whites opposing Zanupf. He said whites just whites as he hates Ndebeles just because they are Ndebeles so much that he even hates Zulus of South Africa.Going to bed with Zanupf if you are white will never save your skin from him and eventually from the democratic Zimbabweans. It might seem impossible now but chinhu chose chinobururuka chinomhara.

    How much land does the Mugabe/Matibili family need to have for them to be satisfied? Year after year they grab at least 2 farms. Its common knowledge that they already have about 15 farms among themselves, not to mention that they are small family. We are tired of these vampires and their greediness. This is way too uch for the mases to stomach. We are just suffering to make the Mugabes merry! We have become their slaves in this country!

    Its sad that with the level of international exposure intellectual abilities, recognition, mixing with different people and staying in democreatic settings one still behaves like that like a true barbarian. If its true then this will be the first thing the husband should have said no. You have money to buy any piece of land anywhere in the world. Why taking that one man piece of land. Tears of children and woman will definately haunt you and spell bad.
