Black Militants Force White Farmer Off Land

August 15, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

Black militants armed with clubs and stones forced a white farmer off his land in northeastern Zimbabwe, the first seizure since an eviction deadline last Thursday.

About 60% of the 2,900 farmers targeted by President Robert Mugabe have defied the deadline to hand their farms to landless blacks.

About 60 Mugabe loyalists surrounded the farm near Bindura, trapping Terry Hinde and his family in the house. The family packed up and left.
