Another setback for Mukupe, the prisoner

Terence Mukupe, a member of the Zanu  PF central committee and a former deputy  minister of finance, was struck another  blow when the provincial leadership of  Zanu  PF Mashonaland East instructed farmers  to  remain on their land designated for  residential use.

More than forty Goromonzi farmers were being evicted by Mukupe from  Mt.  Olympus Chishawasha B Farm, where he intends to establish the housing  development.

The A1 farmers have been living at the farm for more than 20 years with most of them in possession of government offer letters.

However, a high-powered Zanu PF delegation led by provincial chairperson and National Housing and Social Amenities minister Daniel Garwe on Saturday last week visited the area and told the farmers to remain on the piece of land.

“The Zanu PF party is for the people, you the people you are the party. We are here armed with a document that says you are not going anywhere.

“This is your land and we are saying, you belong here. We have informed even the police on the latest position, so fear not,” Garwe told the farmers.

In addition, Garwe disclosed to the Zanu PF provincial coordinating committee  yesterday in Marondera that the offer letter to Mukupe had been revoked by the  Local Government ministry.

The banker was found guilty of sneaking fuel into the nation and avoiding paying  taxes; as a result, he was recently sentenced to three years in prison.

The former Harare East lawmaker asserts that the Local Government and Public  Works ministry gave him the land in 2016 through his business, Farmtel. Since 2019, Mukupe has had difficulty evicting the farmers.
