Obert Mpofu Leaves Esidakeni Farm

Obert Mpofu Leaves Esidakeni Farm

ZANU PF Secretary for Administration Obert Mpofu has vacated Esidakeni Farm he occupied in November last year after the Supreme Court ruled that his occupancy was illegal.

Mpofu and his wife seized the farm located in Nyamandlovu and forced out the owners, among them prominent human rights advocate Siphosami Malunga, who is the son of independence war hero Sydney Malunga.

On 11 July 2022, the Supreme Court ruled that Mpofu’s “brazen invasion” was illegal.

The Esidakeni Estate owners’ lawyers gave Mpofu three days to vacate the property or risk being driven out by the messenger of court.

Malunga co-owns the farm alongside Charles Moyo and Zephaniah Dhlamini, the latter a well-known scientist from the National University of Science and Technology.

Malunga confirmed on Thursday that they were back on the farm and taking stock of the loss caused by Mpofu’s invasion. He said:

We’re back on the farm. We will now take stock of the loss and damage. The rule of law must always prevail.

Mpofu grabbed the 554-hectare farm, arguing that he had been allocated 145 hectares of it by the lands minister.

He then planted corn, but the maize crop failed to produce a yield, apparently due to excessive water and neglect.

Mpofu’s brother, Mbonisi, was the resident occupier of the farm until the Supreme Court ruling.

These Zanu pf bigwigs want to leave other people with absolutely nothing to survive on. Obert Mpofu how many farms and properties do u own around the country and you still need more and more squeezing from the poor the little that they have. You are an embarrasment shud be ashamed of yourself.

It will certainly come a time they will have to account for their wealth. We will take everything they fail to account and forfeit to state

he couldn't hold the pressure from his own party Zanu-PF so he left with his tail between his legs. What a shame.

I am wondering how many farms do these guys have.Mpofu a billionaire still wants more land .If Mugabe had 21 farms ko Mnangagwa anemangani . Contract yeku supply ma jombo ema soja inani.Koyeku supply ma heti emapurisa nema boots inani .ZEC captured how come ZANUPF is controlling the ZEC.Elections in a country like this are doomed.If I foretell we are going to win the game but Zanupf will refuse to handover the country.I hope this falls on open ears.Guys we are going nowhere with this autocratic gvt.
