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
