Court halts farmer evictions in Zimbabwe

  • A court in Zimbabwe has ordered that the controversial eviction of farmers be halted, media reports said.

    Many affected farmers have alleged that their land is being taken away to build a game park that has been proposed by Grace Mugabe, the wife of President Robert Mugabe.

    Government officials have denied claims that the First Lady is involved in the evictions.

    The families had occupied the land seized as part of the government’s land reform program.
