The Movement for Democratic Change led by former Premier Morgan Tsvangirai alleges that a Zanu-PF supporter, Simon Makaza, on Saturday burnt over 35 houses belonging to MDC-T supporters at Banana Groove plot, Ruwa exposing the families including children to the current harsh weather conditions.

Makaza sent in a truck with six men, who burnt the houses forcing the families off the land. An attempt to make a report at Ruwa police station were futile as the officer in charge, said the issue was political hence they could not attend to it. Subsequently, they refused to take down the complainants' report.

Reports are that he is targeting moving to the adjacent farm, Danstun, to move more families suspected to be sympathetic to the MDC-T.
