Dear Mrs Nyatsuro


In December last year you and your lawyer requested a meeting with the Zimbabwe Vigil to discuss our protests outside the Willows Medical Centre against you and you husband's seizing a farm in Zimbabwe. On our behalf Ephraim Tapa, a founder member of the Vigil, responded by contacting your lawyer and asking you / your husband to attend our Forum in London on Saturday, 23rd January. Mr Tapa reported that he had a phone conversation with you on Friday 22nd January in which you indicated that your husband was away until 23rd February and you would not be able to meet with us until then.


At our forum on Saturday it was agreed I should send the following outline of the Zimbabwe Vigil's position to you. It was also agreed that we would consider further action if we did not get a satisfactory reply within 7 days.


We have been in communication with contacts in Zimbabwe and we understand there are around 19 occupiers on the farm harassing the Rankins. The Leader Mika has been there since the beginning and it is suspected he is related to you / your husband and also that the car he uses is registered to Nyatsuro. 


The Vigil's position is that as long as you continue with your claim to Mr Rankin's farm and place people on the farm to harass the Rankins we will continue to mount protests outside the Willows Medical Centre. We cannot wait another month to discuss this with you / your husband. However if you drop your claim to the farm and remove the occupiers our protests will stop.


As for your assertion that you are acting within the law we would answer that there is no rule of law in Zimbabwe. 


You have indicated that our protests are damaging your husband's reputation and livelihood. Considering the damage you are doing to Mr Rankin's livelihood this is double standards. 


Yours sincerely


Zimbabwe Vigil Co-ordinators
