President Emmerson Mnangagwa has warned land barons that the day of reckoning is coming for them. Mnangagwa who criticised urban councils said that he knows who the land barons are after receiving an interim report. Addressing a rally at White City Stadium in Bulawayo, Mnangagwa said,
I am disappointed by urban councils. Most urban councils have gone to waste. The roads are poor, service delivery is poor…We have launched an inquiry into urban and rural councils. I have received a report on Harare alone and it’s terrible. The interim report I have, I now know who are the land barons, their cellphone numbers, their addresses, and what they are doing and how much they have stolen. So the day of Armageddon is coming for them. It’s not only Harare, all other cities and councils. We now want to have a housing programme that is for a modern Zimbabwe.
