Harare - President Robert Mugabe is reportedly suing Zimplats for objecting to the government’s intended compulsory acquisition of 28 000 hectares of mining land in Kadoma, held by Zimplats Holdings Limited.

According to The Herald, Mugabe reportedly filed an application at the Administrative Court seeking confirmation of the compulsory acquisition of the underutilised mining land.

The land, which is held by Zimplats under a special mining lease, has been lying idle for years and government intends to acquire and reallocate it to prospective miners who are keen on extracting platinum for the country’s economic growth.
