Zimbabwean property in Kenilworth to be auctioned

International legal history is expected to be made today when the first sale in execution of a Zimbabwean property in South Africa takes place in Cape Town, civil rights group AfriForum said.

The sale in execution was a direct result of Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe's human rights abuses in his country, AfriForum's legal representative, Willie Spies said in a statement yesterday.

AfriForum successfully assisted a group of dispossessed Zimbabwean commercial farmers to enforce a 2008 ruling by the Southern African Development Community's regional court, the SADC Tribunal.

The tribunal ruled that Mugabe's land grabs were unlawful, racist, and in contravention of applicable international law, he said.

After a five-year legal battle, a Kenilworth property belonging to the Zimbabwean government would be auctioned because they failed to honour cost orders of the High Court, Supreme Court of Appeal, and Constitutional Court.
