My father was amongst the best farmers in our country and because he didnot support Mugabes ideas,Mugabes supporters invaded my father's farm andburnt everything in the farm, killing my father and made away with a lotof items in my father's farm.Before his death, my father had deposited with a Security Company inJohannesburg, South Africa the sum of (TWENTY-EIGHT MILLION TWO HUNDREDTHOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS). After the death of my father, we decidedto move to the Republic of South Africa where he had deposited the moneyin the Security Company as valuables.
