Mujuru’s home was illegally seized from the farm owner

Mujuru lives on a 3,500-acre requisitioned farm known as Alamein Farm, considered to be a productive and high-value estate 45 miles south of the capital of Harare. The Supreme Court has since ruled that the farm was illegally seized in 2001 from its original owner, Guy Watson-Smith, as part of a land-grab. After the Supreme Court’s decision was made public, Mujuru became the first member of Mugabe’s cabinet to be implicated in the illegal seizure of land and assets.
