It was agreed that land which was given to war veterans must not be taken by anyone. It’s Constitutional.

There are some individuals in government who are undermining war veterans and we are not happy they are taking land which belongs to them. This is political mischief and we are not going to allow that. We are going to take action which might be unpopular because our members are suffering.

There are also some people in the party who are trying to undermine war veterans. We heard the incident which happened in Mashonaland central and other provinces during the recent independence celebrations. War veterans were badly treated, we are not happy. Like in Mashonaland central there are some people who are being used by the G40 (former Zanu PF faction) and G40 is very active in Mashonaland Central. These people must not regret in future if we take action against them.

It is reported that war veterans in Mashonaland Central Province recently wrote to the Minister of State for Mashonaland Central, Monica Mavhunga, complaining about land seizures. The letter warned of impending civil unrest if land grabs continued.

War veterans said that their anger is worsened by allegations that senior government officials are the ones taking these lands.
