-The new Zimbabwe government has returned a farmland seized by a gang of tout to its white owner, Robert Smart
– According to reports, the farmland was seized six months ago at gunpoint
– Many see this move by the government under Emmerson Mnangagwa as a sign of the presidency’s deep interest to respond positively to local issues
Zimbabwe’s presidency under Emmerson Mnangagwa handled a case of the seizure of Robert Smart’s farm. The white man was filled with joy when he was asked to return to his farmland.
According to Telegraph’s report, the farm which is the white man’s only home, was seized at gunpoint.
Reports have it that the white man and his entire family were evicted about six months ago by a gang of touts allegedly loyal to former first lady, Grace Mugabe.
This development is viewed by many as an indicator of the new government’s ‘inclusiveness’.
Mugabe supported land invasions from 2000 which saw about 4,000 white farmers evicted, sometimes violently.
Reports gathered from Robert informed President Mnangagwa, was personally involved in the case and did everything in his good office to see that the farmland was returned to him.
He said: “Apparently Mnangagwa saw that and flipped his lid.”
Bishop Trevor Manhanga, the leader of the church called The Pentecostal Assemblies of Zimbabwe, was mentioned as one of the engineers of the farmland invasion.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had reported that Mugabe took a holiday trip to Singapore with his wife and sons.
According to reports, this is Mugabe’s first trip out of his country since leaving office. Reports also stated that his travel would include medical checkup.
It will be recalled that Mugabe’s last public appearance was when he presided over a graduation ceremony in the capital Harare, some days after he stepped down.
Ever since he was removed from the seat of power, his wife has not been seen in public.
