Civil rights groups in Zimbabwe have condemned Grace Mugabe's action in the village of Mazowe.
According to Dumisani Muleya, Editor of Zimbabwe Independent and Chief Content Officer Alpha Media Holdings, Zim's First Lady has been seizing farms in Mazowe area over the years from white farmers.
Recently she seized a farm which was occupied by villagers to establish a wildlife conservancy. She is been sending police and her private security to evict the villagers.
In the last 48 hours they descended in the area and started destroying houses of vulnerable people including women and children.— Dumisani Muleya Editor at Zimbabwe Independent
So people are being forced out of that area so that she can take some wild animals from conserves around the country...— Dumisani Muleya Editor at Zimbabwe Independent
Muleya says the Zimbabwean human rights commission has started investigating the abuse of power by Robert Mugabe and his family.
