Dear Brethren, Greetings in the precious name of Jesus Christ. You may be surprised to receive this message from me since you don't know me in person.However, I am MR. JUDE WEMBA, a citizen of Zimbabwe. I am the only Child of late MR. FRED WEMBA who was murdered in a land dispute in ZIMBABWE. I got your contact through the internent, and then I decided to write you. My late father was among the few black Zimbabwean rich farmers murdered in cold blood by the agent of the ruling government of President ROBERT MUGABE for his alleged support and sympathy for Zimbabwean opposition party. Before the death of my father, he deposited the sum of Ten Million US Dollars ($10M) with a security company during when he went to Thailand to purchase his farm machinery equipment, as if he foresaw the looming danger in Zimbabwe. The box that contains the money was deposited as a gem / precious stone but not money to avoid seize and much demurrage from the security organization. This money was earmarked for the purchase of new machinery and chemicals for the farms and the establishment of new farms in Lesotho and Swaziland. This land problem arose when President R. MUGABE introduced a new land Act, which wholly affects the white rich farmers and some few blacks vehemently condemned the 'MODUS OPERANDI' adopted by the government. This resulted to rampant killing and mob actions. I am currently staying in Bangkok, Thailand as a refugee asylum seeker, You will read more story about President Mugabe's brutal acts by visiting. This website: http://www.rte.ie/news/2000/0418/zimbabwe.html As a christian that reads Bible always, I have found out that two much wealth is vanity upon vanity and I have decided to use this money my father kept in the safe keeping organisation to propagate the work of God,like building magnificent church/ministry in your country.
