Suspected Zanu-PF supporters yesterday invaded a farm belonging to former President Robert Mugabe on the outskirts of Harare. The Standard reports that the group searched cars and people who were entering or leaving the farm. Workers at the farm said some of the protesters were wearing President Emmerson Mnangagwa's 2018 election campaign T-shirts. Mnangagwa last week hinted that Mugabe's family will be forced to relinquish its farms in line with the government's one-man one-farm policy. The family's Mazowe farm is being parcelled out to small scale gold miners. Mugabe, who died in Singapore in September, owned several commercial farms that were seized from white Zimbabweans at the height of the chaotic land reform programme.
