GOVERNMENT’S fight against land barons, accused of illegally parceling out State land in urban areas, has turned nasty amid reports that Harare’s provincial development co-ordinator (PDC) Tafadzwa Muguti was recently poisoned and is in a critical condition.

Sources said Muguti is critically ill and may be flown out of the country for treatment.

They said he was a victim of the vicious land wars that have hit the country and led to the arrest of current and former Zanu PF officials, among them former Labour minister Petronella Kagonye and her Local Government counterpart, Ignatius Chombo.

Gweru land developer Smelly Dube, and the late former Chitungwiza deputy mayor Fredrick Mabamba, who died in remand prison last week, were fingered in some of the illegal land deals.

The land barons were exposed by the Justice Tendai Uchena land audit report which President Mnangagwa has thus kept secret.
