The Minister of Lands, Agriculture and Rural Resettlement, Chief Air Marshal (Retired) Perrance Shiri, has moved in to stop land fights in Manicaland and warned that the final authority to change ownership or status solely rests with his ministry.
Chief Air Marshal (Rtd) Shiri’s comments follow a push by Member of National Assembly for Headlands Christopher Chingosho to have several offer letters issued during the era of self-exiled ex-Minister of State for Manicaland Provincial Affairs Mandi Chimene revoked.
Chingosho is targeting Lesbury Farm (allocated to Bishop Trevor Manhanga, Mr David Nyakonda and Chief Tandi (William Samhungu), Wenselydale Training Centre, allocated to one Nyamuswa who stays in the United States of America;
Mhandara Farm owned by Dakarai Mapuranga, Wakefield Farm owned by Mr Kudzi Chipanga; Kelvin Farm owned by Professor Francis Gudyanga and Mr Booker Chinamasa, and Fairfield Farm, allocated to Chief Makoni Cogen Gwasira, among other properties in Headlands constituency.
Chief Marshal Shiri (Rtd) said the manoeuvres do not depict policy shift.
