Zanu PF Manicaland provincial youth league chairperson Mubuso Chingunu told a provincial youth league executive meeting with national executive members in Mutare on Saturday that they are resorting to land seizures after their requests were turned down by Nyanga National Parks and an Allied Timbers plantation in Chimanimani.
We have a challenge accessing land in Mutare because it is dominated by MDC. Laid down procedure is not working in Mutare as you know well that it’s a very destructive party. We are going to take a radical approach to get our stands. We are going to invade, peacefully, land in Dangamvura and Chikanga and share it with or without approval. The ministry (of Local Government) will come and regularise things after we would have given youths stands. In Nyanga, the land we want belongs to national parks and we are not receiving any joy from them because they have not been forthcoming with their land….In Chimanimani we face the same challenges and the land belongs to Allied Timbers. There is, however, no timber in the area we are interested in and we are going to use the same radical approach there as well.
