President Emmerson Mnangagwa has asserted that the Land Reform Programme is irreversible and what the Government is doing now is implementing the dictates of the Constitution.
President Mnangagwa was addressing members of the Political Actors Dialogue (POLAD) at State House on Friday when he made the remarks. He said:
Let me restate that the Land Reform Programme is irreversible. To this end, there is no vacillation.
The current processes with regards to land issues entail the implementation of provisions of our national Constitution, in particular, Section 295 as it relates to black indigenous Zimbabweans.
I urge all farmers to remain focused on preparing for a successful 2020-2021 season.
This comes after the government recently pledged to restore farms to white former commercial farmers whose land was expropriated during the chaotic land reform.
The farmers whose title to land could be restored are those who were protected by bilateral agreements between Zimbabwe and their Governments.
