In the early morning hours between 4 and 5 on the 25th of August 2014 Mugabe Kisembo and his wife got their second son, a few hours later his village was attacked by paid thugs, raping, tear gassing and burning down their houses. Mugabe was forced to flee with his newborn son and hasn't returned to the land since. The land was seated next to a piece of land containing oil, so the landlord violently cleared the land, making it possible for foreign investors to settle on the land. No investor has done so yet. Mugabe and the rest of the evicted village, who now lives in a makeshift camp nearby, is still struggling to get back to their land.
