War veterans groups fight over land

HARARE - Two war veterans’ groups are fighting over land in the southern parts of Harare currently held by Magamba eChimurenga group.

Clifford Hokonya and Charles Mpofu, from Harare province of the war veterans association, are allegedly leading the fight against Magamba eChimurenga.

Magamba eChimurenga —headed by Andrew Ndlovu — is demanding an eviction order against the “marauding war veterans”

In a case filed at the High Court, Magamba eChimurenga wants the invaders ejected from Amsterdam Park, just outside the capital city near Boka Tobacco Sales Floor, saying it is theirs.

“The plaintiff is the owner of a certain piece of immovable property known as Amsterdam Park Township, Harare,” the court papers say.

“The defendants (Mpofu group have allocated and parcelled out stands for themselves at Amsterdam Park, without approval and blessings of the plaintiff who is the owner thereof,” read the November 13 papers.
The defendants were given ten days to make their presentation before the court or face eviction from the land.

“The defendants are in illegal occupation of the stands mentioned in the declaration and plaintiff regards them as nothing more than illegal occupants,” court papers further state.

Mpofu is also charged with Austin Chindedza, Nesbert Chidzambwa, Langton Chiza, Jameson Tshababa, and Kenneth Guruza, Thomas Muuya, Emmanuel Mandizvidza, Maxwell Malufa, Norman Magama and Nicholas Macheme.

The group is represented by Lawrence Chikwakwa from Sansole and Senda Legal Practitioners in Bulawayo.

The matter is yet to be set down for a hearing. - Xolisani Ncube
