HARARE – Victims of a well-orchestrated land scam at Crowhill Farm have approached Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) and the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) to arrest the perpetrators of the land fraud, jail-birds, Florence and Felix Pambukani.

This is not the first time the notorious couple has had a brush with the law having served an effective jail term for fraud.

The victims want the Pambukanis jailed and forced to pay restitution for swindling more than 200 land-seekers through illegal land sales.

Speaking on condition of anonymity given the Pambukanis history of violence, some of the victims said all they want is their money back.

“I fear for my life because I know their history of hiring thugs to attack anyone who contradicts their plans and they have been threatening us for demanding clarification around the ownership of the farm; I don’t know what to do; I have nowhere to go,” said one of the victims.

The Pambukanis have used the same modus operandi in an attempt to grab Wakefield Farm. In 2010, the owner of Scotsdale Farm died following the couple’s violent takeover of the farm.

The Pambukanis could not be reached for comment as their mobile phones were unreachable at the time of publication.
Last month, the couple failed to stop the eviction of illegal settlers occupying Crowhill Estate in Borrowdale, which was mandated by the High Court in 2021.
They eventually withdrew their High Court suit having realised that chances of success were zero.
Crowhill Estate lawyer, Mr. Timon Tabana, who represents the legal owners of the estate, confirmed that these developments.

“They filed an urgent application on May 11 seeking to set aside the writ of execution, but the application was removed from the roll of urgent matters because it had been overtaken by events,” said Tabana.

“They attempted another application to interdict the Sheriff but withdrew the application at the hearing, because a court cannot interdict a past event.”

The High and Supreme Courts have, in various judgments in the past, ordered the couple not to interfere with the legal operations at Crowhill Estate as they have no claim to the farm.
The Pambukanis falsely claim to own the farm measuring over 724 hectares.
