Government Takes Back Idle Farms

Government Takes Back Idle Farms

The Government has withdrawn offer letters from two farmers in Manicaland Province who were not utilising the land.

The two farmers were granted land totalling 600 hectares under the Land Reform Programme.

In a notice on Monday, Lands, Agriculture, Fisheries, Water and Rural Development Minister Anxious Masuka said the farms were being withdrawn as one of the owners was not utilising the land, while the other farm had not been taken up. He said:

Notice is hereby given to the land beneficiary that the acquiring authority intends to withdraw his offer letter for not taking up his plot in contravention of the terms and conditions of their offer letters.

The beneficiary should respond to the notice within 14 working days of this publication.

The respondents were identified as van Rensburg of Cavala Farm in Makoni, and one E Matibiri of Brondesbury Farm in Nyanga.

Cavala Farm was abandoned while Brondesbury had not been taken up.

Takazvitaura kare izvi kuti land redistribution was hap hazard. Maipa vanhu na200h of land forgetting kuti vanhu vacharamba vachizvarwa munyika and the more they grow,the bigger the demand for land. Afterall,for one to qualify to be citizen of a country,one has to own agricultural land. Dai makapa vanhu ma5h pamunhu then reserve the rest for future redistribution zvino misoro yenyu yakaoma plus umbimbindoga hwakawandisa. Ini hangu ndiikungoda 2h chete chete🤷
