We Will Repossess Farms And Distribute Them To The Youths – ED

President Mnangagwa while presiding over the burial of  Moses Griffiths Mpofu at the heroes acre yesterday said the government will seize farms from multiple farm owners and all underutilized farms and redistribute them to other people especially the youths, The Standard reports.

Speaking to the mourners at the heroes acre President Mnangagwa said:

The inquiry we made on agricultural land has identified lots of land which is vacant, underutilised and belonging to multiple owners.

Government will repossess that land for on-leasing to the landless, foremost among them the youths. The land has come. We must cultivate it to grow our economy.

I am aware that our youths are crying out for pieces of land and are eager to work the land. Our land reform programme was a success and never will it be reversed by those opposed to it forever.

Last year the new agriculture minister Dr. Anxious Masuka told farmers who were allocated land through the land reform program to submit their production returns records by January 2021 as he said the government was going to repossess underutilized land.
