Govt withdraws offer letter given to indigenous farmer to take over Chiredzi crocodile farm

Lands minister Douglas Mombeshora, has reportedly withdrawn an offer letter he had earlier given to Gilbert Nyasha, to take over Jeffrey and Henry Sommer’s crocodile farming project in Chiredzi.

The withdrawal letter was given two days before Mr Nyasha took the owners of the 71-hectare farm to court, seeking their eviction. Speaking to NewsDay, acting Chiredzi district administrator, Ndeya Nyede, who is also chairperson of the district lands committee, confirmed the development last week.He said that the reason for withdrawing the offer is that officials made a mistake by allocating land which was already allocated to other people and they were given seven days to respond if they want to challenge it. However, NewsDay could not reach either Mombeshora or Nyasha for comment.
