My husband was among the few rich Zimbabwe black farmers murdered in cold blood by agents of the decision of government of President Robert Mugabe, for his alleged support and understanding towards the Zimbabwe's opposition party the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) controlled by whites. Before his death, my husband in one of his many trips abroad me made in Johannesburg to deposit the amount of U.S. $ 55000000.00 (fifty five million U.S. dollars) with a company security and Finance as the threat included in Zimbabwe. The money was deposited with the company security in our arrival in Johannesburg, to prevent its concern and their safety.

The problem arose when land the President Mugabe, according to my late husband was a desperate attempt to arrest power of life, presented a new land law, which fully committed rich farmers who were mainly white and black finally condemned to strongly the method adopted by the government. And that led to the murder of devastation, looting and the size of the mob Measures taken by veterans and some political hoodlums.
