Kasukuwere's Farm Workers Face Bleak Future3 years ago
Some of the workers are originally from Mozambique and face a bleak future if they are kicked out of the farm.
Kasukuwere told The Standard on Saturday that he will present a strong case to Lands minister Perrance on the developments he has made on the farm. He said:
We will put our case to the minister in terms of what we are doing. We are doing cultivation on 120 hectares of land which we opened ourselves. It initially just had citrus only, but we invested on centre pivots, opened the land for irrigation and brought in the water.
We did a lot and borrowed from financial companies. There were only two houses for workers and we have now built more to cater for more than 100 workers. The farm was just a small part of the estate and no one was using it.

Shiri last week wrote to Kasukuwere notifying him of the ministry’s intention to withdraw the land offer letter ostensibly for planning purposes.
