Gono’s Farm Goes Up in Mysterious Flames After Baba Jukwa Warning

The Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe Gideon Gono’s farm just outside Harare has been 
blazed by a mysterious fire barely 4 weeks after a warning posted by 
Facebook ZANU PF top de-filer, Baba Jukwa four weeks ago.

Property and equipment items worth at least USD33,000 were reduced to a 
crisp in minutes after the unexplainable flames gutted the farm’s key 
production section including a large patch of grazing land after 3 PM 
Thursday. This is the second mysterious attack in the last 23 months after 
the first one gutted property worth more than USD130,000 and Gono’s family 
had to flee for refuge after it was unexpectedly set alight.

Workers at the farm described the fire as having a yellow to a strong blue 
coloration at base level alleging that it was clearly not a normal fire. 
They said they immediately made a report at Borrowdale police station. Said 
Velenjani Lupankwa, a senior executive with TD Holdings, a subsidiary of 
Lunar Chickens, “We are still assessing the damage, but our preliminary 
investigations have shown that property worth more than US$30 000 has been 
destroyed,”gonoclassique

“Considering the fact that the fire has coincided with the visit by our 
auditors from Europe we are suspecting foul play because the cause of fire 
is not known and this is the first time we have fire breaking out.

“(We are aware that) not everyone is happy with what we are doing, but we 
are still investigating, but our preliminary investigations have shown that 
there was a hand behind the fire.

“We have lost some of our electronic motors and some of grazing land is 
gone, but the good thing is fire brigade arrived on time and they have 
managed to control the fire before much harm was done to these projects.

“We have lost some of our electronic motors and as you can see some of 
grazing land is gone, but the good thing is fire brigade arrived on time and 
they have managed to control the fire before much harm was done to these 
projects.”
Babab Jukwa Warning:

After the death of former Mines Minister Edward Chindori Chininga, last 
month, ZANU PF de-filer, Baba Jukwa warned Gideon Gono that he could be 
assassinated anytime soon.“I wonder still as well why Gideon Gono is not 
heeding my warning. Funeral wake is going to visit his family very soon if 
he doesn’t take drastic measures to save his precious life.

“They want your head in the platter. Saviour Kasukuwere, Nicholas Goche, 
Sydney Sekeramayi, Dick Mafios and the evil crew are responsible for Hon 
Chindori Chininga’s death and are also responsible for an attempt on the 
life of Mashonaland Central Governor Martin Dinha,” Baba Jukwa alleged.
