Talks with mediators
yesterday and today

Talks between Renamo and government resumed yesterday, with mediators present. After a formal meeting, the mediators met separately with the Renamo and government teams in parliament. The three teams (6 government, 6 Renamo, 6 mediators) will begin actual discussions at a meeting today in the Hotel Avenida. (Noticias & O Pais, 20 & 21 July; Zitamar & AIM 20 July)

Renamo and the government each asked three eminent people or institutions to name mediators. Renamo identified the European Union, the Vatican, and South African president Jacob Zuma. The government identified three former presidents and prime ministers: Ketumule Masire (Botswana), Jakaya Kikwete (Tanzânia) and Tony Blair (UK). It appears that most of the six will have at least two people and in some cases more present in Maputo; all six were represented at the session yesterday.

Kindest Regards

Please can you advise interested parties that there are con artists using fraudulent Eaglesvale School Procurement Vouchers – they place orders ino Eaglesvale School then arrive with fraudulent RTGS forms all duly stamped and attempt to collect what they have ordered – all very authentic looking – unfortunately trusting people may end up losing – I am not that trusting and do not release any stock until funds reflect in my account.  I have spoken to Eaglesvale and handed over copies of the various documentation to them so they can investigate further



Speed trap

I was out running my usual 8km route around Glen Lorne early this morning when I came across a speed trap at the bottom of Glen Helen.

4 Highway Patrol guys were out catching cars going over 60 at the foot of a major hill – very hard not to speed down that incline

I have never seen them there before but I suspect they will move to other places in the next few days

Good Day Mike

Please could you send this out on behalf of Barry Millward

On Saturday the 9th of July I was visited by “Janet” the white lady that was once spoken about who comes around claiming she needs money to go back to her family in Chinhoyi.  Being of a soft nature and not knowing beforehand who she was I invited her into my home. As I went to collect some money I wanted to give her, I left her sitting in the lounge.  When I came back, gave her the money she then sat a little then left.  After she had left I noticed my Samsung A3 phone was missing and knew she stole it, as it had been there before she came.

She then called me on my landline later in the evening  told me later that that she is sorry for stealing my phone and could I meet her to collect the phone the next day around lunchtime.  No surprise, I have not heard from her since.

If she tries to tell you a sad story and sell you a Samsung A3 serial number 356523 - 06/404192/5* please contact me immediately on 0733 778 267 or call Borrowdale police station on 860148/ 860061/ 67 Police report number is RRB2813495/16 officer dealing with the case is Constable Kunodziya.

Many Thanks

removal of the illegal settlers from Chishawasha to Hatcliff.

has been helping with the settlers from Chishawasha and sent me this email today. Ciao Mike G.

From: Jacqueline Anderson

Good morning Readers

FBC has asked us to put their statement out concerning the removal of the illegal settlers from Chishawasha to Hatcliff.

As said in previous correspondence the Bank provided transport to take the people to the Hatcliff area and two tents.

We have also asked if they would consider assisting with toilets etc which they are looking into.

Mega Pak donated a water tank.  Meikles Foundation donated 20 000 lts of water.  Lucky Brand – mealie meal and blankets.  Muslim Community  provided a borehole yesterday and plastic sheeting. Individual & company Cash donations and goods & clothing have been coming in  -  Mealie bought through cash donations.   Chinese Business Association – loads of bread loaves. 

The community are still in need of blankets (very very cold out there)  / sugar & tea & milk (mainly for the children) / water (will take time for borehole to be up and running)

Toilets & buckets

Items can be taken directly out to the Hatcliff Area and all receipted through the people in charge co ordinated by MP Mudambo   Alternatively please drop at Highlands Presbyterian Church Att MM  Hat/Res

Huge thank you once again for those who are been so generous.  

I know I always say it but     “we have the best people in the world in our country”      who can rally to meet a need of someone less fortunate than themselves. 

Below is FBC’s position on the same.

The evictions which have been executed are as per the High Court Judgement passed in 2013 under case number 12422/12.  This land was acquired back in 2008. As you may be  well aware, FBC is in the property development business and this property was part of our land bank, earmarked for development.   We in fact hold title to this land. While we were in the process of completing a number of other housing projects around Harare and in other cities, the land was occupied by illegal settlers who have consistently refused to move.

The case has been dragging since 2013 when FBC was granted an order by the High Court  to evict the settlers. The illegal settlers were served with eviction summons two weeks ago and some of them heeded the call and vacated.  The remaining settlers were peacefully removed from the area with the assistance  of Harare North Member of Parliament, Hourable Mudambo who  managed to find them land to settle in Hatcliffe.  On humanitarian grounds, FBC has provided  temporary shelter for the settlers as well as transport to move them and all their belongings to an alternative site organised by Mr. Mudambo.  

This piece of land is part of our property earmarked for development and as such, must be vacated for its intended use. FBC Building Society has in the past 6 years successfully built and sold over 870 low, medium and high density housing units around Harare and select cities, in support of the government’s initiative to provide decent and affordable accommodation to the nation. We seek to increase our footprint in property development across the length and breath of the country.

Warm regards
