Africa adores Mugabe: Zanu-PF

Africa "completely and absolutely adores President Robert Mugabe", that is why he has been elected head of the African Union, his Zanu-PF party says.

Harare - Militia loyal to Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe have evicted around 60 farmers from their land, the country's Commercial Farmers' Union said.

"We had the first black commercial farmer evicted today," Trevor Gifford, CFU president told Deutsche Presse-Agentur dpa, estimating at around 60 families the number chased off their farms since the latest wave of farm invasions began Saturday.

"They said he (the black farmer) had voted for the opposition," Gifford said, adding the farmer's workers' houses had been burnt.

"By the weekend we expect hundreds will have been evicted," he added.

The provinces affected were Masvingo, Mashonaland West, Mashonaland East and Mashonaland Central. - Sapa-dpa
