Fresh waves of farm and mine invasions have hit the country with Zanu-PF youths and Women's League members fighting to take over a farm and a mine.

Newsday reporters claim that they witnessed the invasion of a farm in Caledonia by a group of Zanu-PF youths who camped at the property and invited people in need of stands to register.

The youths erected a billboard written "Nhaka Yemadzitateguru Edu Housing Consortium" and blocked anyone they did not know from entering.

The farm is owned by a white farmer whose identity could not be immediately established.

In Guruve, a group of Zanu-PF women slept at Eureka Gold Mine declaring they had taken over from the owners for, among other things, not employing youths.

The Guruve Women in Mining said they was appealing to the Zanu-PF party leadership in the province to engage the Ministry of Mines to grant them a licence to take over the mine.

The more than 50 women were joined by youths vowing to take over the mine, but were later dispersed after police intervention.
