The Mike Campbell Foundation has defended the white commercial farmer Geofrey Kelly McKinnon (66) after state media accused him of keeping firearms at his farm.GUNPOWDER-LOADING-MACHINE

According to the foundation, the accused “Mark McKinnon recently represented Zimbabwe in the World Championships with his shotgun and the Zimbabwean team ranked 19th out of 42 nations.

“Sadly he had to withdraw from the recent Rio Olympics because of the jambanja (violent farm eviction) situation he was having to deal with.”

And from the State newspaper the Herald, who in their delight at discovering a bullet making making machine and a number of rounds at the home of the evicted McKinnon family immediately pronounced it a ‘British’ arms cache (the Australian flag has a Union Jack in its left corner).

This ‘British’ remark was soon removed from the report after the unidentified “crime reporter” received a roasting on social media, however it seems he is still unable to identify the nationality of the offending ‘sponsors’.

The truth behind the bullet machine and the rifles is going to leave this ‘crime reporter’ with his foot in his mouth however. Just rewards for disinformation..

Today’s story in the Herald vilifying the McKinnon’s after their eviction on Tuesday the 30th of August was false and mischievous. The Herald made out that the McKinnons had illegal arms of war and were manufacturing ammunition illegally.

Mark McKinnon recently represented Zimbabwe in the World Championships with his shotgun and the Zimbabwean team ranked 19th out of 42 nations. Sadly he had to withdraw from the recent Rio Olympics because of the jambanja (violent farm eviction) situation he was having to deal with.

All his weapons were licensed as well as his reloading machine for his ammunition.

Their eviction case is on appeal before the High Court and as such any orders from the magistrate’s court are suspended until such time as the High Court hears the appeal and gives judgement.
