Police demolish 50 more homes at Arnold Farm to make way for Grace Mugabe

Police yesterday again pulled down over 50 homes on Arnold Farm to allegedly to pave way for First Lady Grace Mugabe, who reportedly wants to expand her business empire in Mazowe.

A villager who spoke to NewsDay said:

Today (yesterday) they destroyed 50 homes. On Wednesday, they destroyed 35 out of the 143 homes on the farm,” one villager said. We don’t have anywhere to go. Last night, it rained incessantly and we had to salvage the remains of the thatch grass to build makeshift shelters for our children while elders slept in the rains. The situation is just hopeless. We want to move, but we don’t have anywhere to go. The government has not given us alternative land.


In 2015 homes were also demolished and over 700 villagers evicted from the nearby Manzou Farm, again allegedly at the instruction of the First Family. The villagers were later resettled at Rushinga, Lazy and Blagdon farms in Concession before they took legal action and got a High Court reprieve to stay at the property until they had been allocated an alternative piece of land to settle.
