Government has warned that it will take action against all settlers occupying land without tenure documents.
The Mashonaland West provincial leadership convened a meeting with lands committees from the province, with the province’s Minister for Provincial Affairs Cde Webster Shamu announcing a raft of measures to be instituted in order to restore order in farms.
Eviction of illegal settlers is one of the measures to be undertaken.
Zanu PF Mashonaland West provincial chairman Cde Ziyambi Ziyambi told the meeting that there has to be order on farms if high production levels are to be attained.
He also reminded those present that the allocation of land is the responsibility of the Minister of Lands, Agriculture and Resettlement or the Head of State.
There are reports of thousands of squatters on farms across Mashonaland West.
