I am contacting you for assistance due to the recent problems that my family is facing in Zimbabwe.After the last general elections in my country where the incumbent President Mr. Robert Mugabe won he adopted a very aggressive land reform programme. During this period of the Land Reform Act of which many rich White farmers were killed, our farmland was attacked, looted and burnt down by militants sponsored by the dictator President Robert Mugabe and in the process my father was killed. Before his death, he had deposited the sum of €23,000,000.00(Twenty Three Million Euros) with a Bank, as he foresaw the Looming dangers in Zimbabwe. The amount was meant for the purchase of new machineries and Chemicals proposed for new farms in Zimbabwe. This cash was kept with the Bank for fear of seizure by the Government, as President Mugabe had declared war on white farmers. I have been unable to travel to out due to the recent problems in our country Zimbabwe, I cannot secure a visa.
