NYATSIME residents are living in fear of phase 4 councillor Masimbi Masimbi whom they allege is using threats to illegally allocate land to Zanu PF members in the politically volatile area.

The residents, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told Dungwiza News that the situation escalated following the interparty violence that occurred after the arrest of suspected killer Pius Mukandi Jamba.

“Masimbi is allocating land illegally especially to Zanu PF members, he has declared that all the land in Nyatsime belongs to Zanu PF,” a resident said.

Another resident added that when the owners of the land come to claim their land they would be will violently chased away by Zanu PF youths.

“We are now living in fear of these hooligans, we legally acquired our stands but they are breaking the law using the government’s name.”

However, Masimbi rubbished the allegations as the work of his political enemies.

“That’s not true, we don’t do such bad things, these allegations are coming from the opposition party, there are calculated to tarnish me.”

“Following the statutory instrument which appointed a Joint Committee called MACHI on the six farms, no one can acquire a new stand in Nyatsime before this committee is fully operational.”

He said they were actually protecting stands owned by Zimbabweans living outside the country.
