Zanu PF activists lose land row

Zanu PF activists lose land row

HARARE - A Bulawayo High Court judge has ordered two Zanu PF activists to 
stop illegal invasion and selling of land belonging to a war veterans’ 
housing group, Magamba Echimurenga Trust.

Justice Andrew Mutema last week interdicted Clifford Hokonya and Charles 
Mpofu from invading Amsterdam Park, near Boka Tobacco Sales Floors, on the 
outskirts of Harare.

The war veterans want to use the land to build urban houses.

In his ruling, Mutema banned the duo from grabbing the land and interfering 
in the group’s work.

“The 1st and 2nd defendants (Hokonya and Mpofu) be and are hereby 
interdicted from alienating, selling or disposing the stands at Amsterdam 
Park, Harare.

“The defendants be and are hereby interdicted from interfering in any way in 
the affairs of the plaintiff,” reads part of the judgment.

Allegations against the two are that, they have been allocating and 
parcelling out land at Amsterdam Park without approval from Magamba 
Echimurenga Trust.

Magamba Echimurenga Trust chairperson Andrew Ndlovu told the Daily News that 
anyone who acquired land at Amsterdam Park from the two must vacate the 
place peacefully before forceful evictions begin.

“They can approach our offices so that we can see how best we can assist 
them,” said Ndlovu. - Bryn Gumbo
