Government might soon be forced to grab farms as the War Veterans ministry has initiated a one-week exercise calling on former freedom fighters to submit applications for land in their provinces of choice. The ministry also encouraged those that are being evicted off the land they were allocated to approach their offices.
This comes at a time when war veterans are complaining of unfair land distribution and threats of eviction by well-connected government officials. In Masvingo, a group of war veterans has since appealed to President Robert Mugabe to stop their imminent eviction from Mujingwe Wildlife Conservancy. War Veterans minister Tshinga Dube confirmed to NewsDay that the notice was from his ministry.
