Rautenbach Estate Torched

Recriminations have started after criminals set fire to part of Billy Rautenbach’s half-a- billion-dollar Greenfuel ethanol plant in Chisumbanje.
Cane sugar and plant went up in smoke at the weekend but police were still to identify suspects.
However, Zanu PF Chipinge South MP Enock Porusingazi accused local villagers of being behind the attack, as revenge for losing farmland to Rautenbach when the plant was set up in 2009.
A spokesman for the district ethanol committee dismissed Porusingazi’s allegations.
Several European NGOs have petitioned Rautenbach to resolve the land dispute by compensating the farmers.
