White Zimbabwean farmer frogmarched from farm after claim by British doctor

A white Zimbabwean farmer has been handcuffed and forcibly removed from his farm after police stormed the property to enforce a claim made by a British doctor.

Phillip Rankin was first ordered off his tobacco farm in September last year following a claim for land made by Dr Sylvester Nyatsuro, who was born in Zimbabwe but now has British citizenship.

At dawn last Friday police dug their way under the fence around the Rankin’s homestead, banged on the side door and told Mr Rankin that they would force their way in if he did not open the door.
