Zimbabwe Consulting On Seizure Of Cape Town Properties

A civil rights group, Afri Forum, seized a Cape Town luxury property belonging to Harare saying it was starting a “civil sanctions campaign” against President Robert Mugabe’s government.

An official at the embassy in Pretoria told Radio VOP,  that Ambassador Simon Khaya Moyo had travelled to Harare to consult.

“He is in Harare consulting on the matter, we are aware of the matter but can not comment it is only the ambassador who can speak to you,” said an official who cannot be named.

Afri Forum seized a property valued at R2, 5 million in Cape Town’s Kenilworth at number 5 Salisbury Road. It was by Tuesday in the process of trying to attach three other properties in the Cape Town suburbs of Zonneblom, Kenilworth and Wynberg.

A regional court here ruled in favour of white farmers saying Zimbabwe’s land reform programme was discriminatory in nature.

The ruling which was roundly ignored in Zimbabwe was registered as part of South African law on February 26 in the North Gauteng High Court.
