Zimbabwe’s former first lady Grace Mugabe’s gold mine in Mazowe was reportedly invaded by suspected Zanu-PF gunmen who drove out security guards who were guarding the property.
According to Daily News, the attack at the former first lady’s Mazowe mine occurred on Wednesday last week when a group of armed men forced their way into the property.
The Zanu-PF-linked men occupied the house at the mine and even enlisted the services of police to remove Mugabe’s security officials from the mine before leaving at least one police officer to watch over the property.
The unnamed Zanu-PF-linked men were, however, chased away from the property two days later when Mugabe hired more security for reinforcement.
The Mugabes’ head of security has confirmed the development and says security has since beefed up at the Mazowe gold mine property.
This comes less than a month after President Emmerson Mnangagwa indicated that his predecessor Robert Mugabe would only be allowed to keep one farm in line with the government’s land policies
