Before the death of my father,he took me to Johannesburg City to deposit the sum of US$12.5 Million (Twelve Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) in a private Security /Finance Company, when He foresees the looming danger in Zimbabwe. This amount was meant for the purchase of new machines and chemicals for the farms and also for the establishment of a new farm in Swaziland. My late father was one of the best farmers in our country. The land disputes started when our President MR. ROBERT MUGABE introduced a new Land Act reform which wholly affected the rich white farmers and some few black farmers, for the purpose of acquiring all the white-owned farms to his party members and followers. He ordered all the white farmers to surrender their farms to his party members and followers, this resulted to many killings by Zimbabwe war veterans and some lunatics in the society. In fact, my father was one of his victims, because he was totally against PRESIDENT MUGABE'S ideas. It is on this background that I am currently staying in South Africa as refugee, has decided to transfer my father’s inherited money to a foreign country,since the laws of South Africa prohibits refugees have a bank account or to be involved in any financial transaction throughout the territorial zones of South Africa.
