Minister of Lands, Agriculture and Rural Resettlement retired Air Chief Marshal Perrance Shiri is reported to have allocated a major part of the farm belonging to the widow of the late national hero General Vitalis Zvinavashe to the Chinese. A huge chunk of Margaret Zvinavashe’s farm in Norton was allocated to Chinese firm Sunny Yi Feng Tiles so that it can set up a ceramic tiles factory.
Shiri confirmed the matter and told The Standard that the ministry of lands was reducing farm sizes. Said Shiri,
She was adequately consulted and everything is being done in agreement. The Chinese hold an offer letter on the piece of land after there was an agreement to withdraw it from her… We have given them the land and whatever they do should be in compliance with the demands of other government agencies.
