“The Western media are at it again, they are going on to misquote the President for statements he did not make. Today they have reported that the president has ordered that the remaining white farmers should vacate the farms. Last year they reported that the President had said there is no cholera in the country”, said Reuben Barwe.
President Mugabe clearly stressed in Chinhoyi last weekend, that white farmers who were granted permission by the courts to reoccupy the farms they lost during the controversial land reform programme and have since come back to the said farm should vacate those farms.
“Those white farmers who had their land taken for resettlement by the state and have reoccupied them should vacate those farms, they should vacate those farms,” said President Mugabe in his speech during his lavish 85th birth day celebrations in Chinhoyi on Saturday.
The state controlled Television station went on to repeat the President’s whole birthday celebrations speech.
