My late father is one of the best farmers in our country, and because he did= not support Mugabe's idea, Mugabe's supporters invaded my father=E2=80=99s=20= farm and burnt everything in the farmland, killing my father and made away w= ith all the things in the farm. Before his death, my late father had deposited with one of the security comp= any in Johannesburg South Africa, the sum of $US25million (Twenty five milli= on United States dollars). Then after the death of my father, my family deci= ded to move to South Africa where my father had deposited the money.
