Zim Military ejects 100 villagers illegally resettled 36 years ago


Zim Military to remove 100 occupants unlawfully resettled 36 years earlier. In a letter to the townspeople having the Daily News, 3 Brigade pioneer, Brigadier General George Chitsva, gave the Rufuka Village 14B occupants until June 30 to leave the domain or face ejection.

The Zimbabwe National Army (ZNA) needs to oust 100 local people in Wengezi, Manicaland, saying they were improperly resettled 36 years in a military cantonment.

“You are depended upon to come by clearing the cantonment locale by June 30, 2020 or face convincing ejection. Mercifully take an interest and come,” scrutinizes the letter dated May 7, yet passed on to local people seven days back. Chitsva said the military was alloted the land in 2003.

“This letter serves to exhort you that you should clear from Wengezi Military Training Area by June 30, 2020. “The zone is spared exclusively for military use as gave in the Government Gazette No 82 of 2003,” the military general formed.

In any case, an operator of local people, Stephen Choto, said they were staggered by the military move as they were resettled by the organization in 1984.

He said each family was administered 12-area of land plots and they had even collected a grade school in the domain. “We were settled here around 1984 legitimately and it came as a shock that the military is at present saying the zone was gazetted in 2003 and we were never taught with respect to any such unforeseen development,” Choto said.

Choto said they were stressed that they would be irritated off their property and were yet to guide the Lands administration on the unforeseen development. “We essentially got this from the military and we have not heard anything from the people who settled us here 36 years earlier – the administration of Lands.

“We are needing to interface with them on what really is happening in light of the fact that undoubtedly this is our property and the military has their own space away from here,” he said.

The military, in any case, stated the occupants settled themselves in the region. “See that you have no benefit at law to settle yourself in the gazetted district,” the letter attested.

“Zimbabwe National Army is set to guide some military getting ready in the locale and your quintessence will antagonistically impact the smooth movement of military activities. “Besides, you reveal yourself and your family to potential risk from military activities that may be endeavored in the cantonment occasionally.”
