War Veterans in Mashonaland have vowed to resist any eviction from their farms saying their eviction was a western agenda meant to frustrate war veterans.
These remarks come as there are reports suggesting that white farmers are being given back land that was now being possessed by war veterans and other black farmers. The resolution reads in part:
We have resolved to resist the evictions, no war veteran is going to be removed from his land as these evictions are a result of corruption between white farmers and officials at the Ministry of Lands, especially legal officers.
Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association (ZN- LWVA) Mashonaland province chairperson Sam Parirenyatwa told the Daily News that Lands minister Perrance Shiri has promised to solve the issue.
ZNLWVA Mazowe district chairperson Efanos Mudzimunyi, whose farm was also taken, said that the eviction process was not done in a transparent manner as just receive court orders telling them to depart from their farms.
