The Minister for Lands, Agriculture, Water, Climate and Rural Resettlement Perence Shiri last week told a post-cabinet media briefing that people who have settled illegally on government farms should go back where they came from. Shiri is reported to have said,
We expect that they shall go back to where they came from. If they have got any challenges, well, we have got the social department which can look into that, but our task is to ensure there is total stability on the farms.
The illegal settlers are found throughout the farming areas so basically, you find them in all the provinces. We have identified where they are and we are proceeding with the evictions.
Everything possible is being done for farmers to go back to the land and the government will leave no stone unturned to make sure we produce enough not only for our own consumption but even for exports.
Yes, there could be challenges here and there but that’s why we are there to look into challenges and resolve them.
