Zanu PF Youths invade Bhasikiti’s farm
Suspected Zanu PF supporters on Friday invaded former Politburo Member and Minister of Masvingo Provincial Affairs Kudakwashe Bhasikiti’s farm and stole fence running between the farm and neighbouring communal lands.
Bhasikiti accused Masvingo Provincial Affairs Minister Shuvai Mahofa and outgoing Mwenezi District Administrator Stanley Chamisa of instructing the supporters to carry out the invasion.
According to Masvingo Mirror, Bhasikiti said the act is criminal as they vandalized a private property.
“There are people who came into my Moria Farm and stole diamond mash wire which was 70m long. They had instructions from Mwenezi DA and Mahofa who said that Bhasikiti should remove his wire so that villagers can let in their cattle because their land is no longer able to feed their cattle.
“I wonder why they chose my farm because nearby Billy has over 300 000 hectares of land but they come to mine which is only 355 hectares. They have double standards,” said Bhasikiti.
Bhasikiti said he reported the matter to the police as well as to the Minister of Lands. He also advised government officials to respect the law of the country.
“I reported the matter to the Police and the Minister of Lands but no arrests have been made so far. We are yet to recover the wire. Senior government officials should know how Government operates. My farm is similar to those owned by Billy and Tongaat Hullet, it is a private property and those vandals should be prosecuted,” said Bhasikiti
