President Emmerson Mnangagwa said Government is repossessing land from multiple farm owners and will soon redistribute it to the youths and other Zimbabweans. Addressing his first meeting with youths in Gweru, President Mnangagwa added that Government was also downsizing farms to benefit those who did not have land.
The committee is discovering that there are people with more than one farm and we are taking those farms and leave you with one. We have also discovered that some farms are very big farms exceeding what is recommended depending on the region. We are downsizing those farms and you have requested that when we redistribute, we must think about the youths. That message is very clear. We do not want one individual to disadvantage others. We want fairness in the distribution of land. On that request we take it on board by making sure that the land we are getting back as a result of people with many farms we are going to take, some we have already repossessed, and some of that we are going to downsize, we will give our people.
