Mugabe Admits Land Reform Bungle As Mzembi Grabs 2nd Farm

MzembiAs Robert Mugabe admits that he has blundered with his land reform programme, Tourism Minister Walter Mzembi, who reportedly already owns another farm, is said to be threatening to grab a highly productive chicken-breeding farm in Masvingo.

President Robert Mugabe admitted in a ZBC interview for his 91st birthday that he blundered by giving ill-equipped black farmers vast tracts of farmland seized from whites under his controversial land reforms.

“I think the farms we gave to people are too large. They can’t manage them,” Mugabe said,  adding that most of them were using just one third of the land - no wonder Zimbabwe has been reduced to importing basics, like maizemeal.

In the past, Mugabe has blamed a drastic drop in agricultural production on erratic rains due to climate change and western sanctions, which he said hampered his government’s efforts to procure equipment for the farmers.

Zanu (PF) Corruption, In-fighting On Show at Telecel Zimbabwe

corruptionMapfumoZanu (PF) corruption and in-fighting is on show again in the Postal and Telecommunications Regulatory Authority of Zimbabwe (Potraz)/Telecel Zimbabwe scandal - how Telecel managed to operate for 13 months without paying over $100m in licence fees, and how a shareholding dispute involving Philip Chiyangwa and Leo (Zhuwao) Mugabe, with Patrick Zhuwao now entering the fray.

The scandal goes back to indigenisation policy under which the foreign shareholders of Telecel were forced to offload 11% of their shareholding to Empowerment Corporation, created by the “Zimbabwe Wealth Creation Council” (Leo’s IEG, Jane Mutasa’s Indigenous Business Women’s Organisation (IBWO), the National Miners Association, Chjiyangwa’s Affirmative Action Group, War Veterans Association, the Zimbabwe Farmers Union (ZFU) and james Makamba’s Kestrel Corporation.)
