Bully Mphoko in court

Vice President Phelekezela Mphoko is set to appear in court on February 23 as he was dragged  by  about 70 villagers in the Tshayile area of Bubi, Matabeleland North province.

Mphoko is involved in a  boundary dispute.

Led by Vusa Ncube, the villagers filed an urgent chamber application at the Bulawayo High Court citing Mphoko and the Minister of Lands and Rural Resettlement Douglas Mombeshora as first and second respondents respectively, Financial Gazzette reported.

The villagers  are seeking an order blocking the Vice President from extending his farm's boundary into their land at Shilloh Farm, adjacent to Mphoko's Mzohluzo Farm.

Mphoko's farm manager  told villages that they face evictions.

The publication citing court papers filed by lawyer Josphat Tshuma of Webb, Low and Barry Legal Practitioners, the villagers are accusing the Vice President of straying into their territory.

They said despite peacefully co-existing with Mphoko for the past 16 years, he had become unfriendly and has since started fencing off a portion of their grazing land.
