Because of land and farm land crisis in Zimbabwe,the government secretly sponsored the war veterans and some irrate party members to dispossess the land being occupied by white farmers.This action has led to the killing of some members of opposition party including my husband(Mr.Felix Mbuli). But before the death of my husband,he anticipated some dangers and so he deposited the sum of US$15.4m(Fifteen million four hundered Thousand United States Dollars) in the name of our only son David Mbuli Jr,with the help of reputable security company in south Africa with the intention of using it to open fertilizer manufacturing company among other companies in our neighbouring country (Swaziland)after his university education. The war veterans and some supporters of(ZANU-PF)ruling party trooped into our compound and axed him(my husband)to death.Since then,they have been terrorizing my only son,Daivd Mbuli Jr,but we managed to escape to a neighbouring country,South Africa as a political asylum seeker(Refugee).But our position in South Africa does not permit us to open an account or run any huge financial business.
