WHITE commercial farmers operating illegally on land acquired by the State for resettlement purposes in Mashonaland West province through ad-hoc lease agreements with resettled farmers have been given until May 15 to wind up operations.

This is when they are expected to have finished harvesting their crops that are still in the fields.
Farmers leasing out land outside provisions of the law will not be spared as they stand to lose their allocations.

The ultimatum was issued at a meeting between Zanu-PF’s provincial leadership and 50 white farmers in Chinhoyi on Friday.
This followed another meeting on Thursday of the provincial lands committee in Chinhoyi where a decision was made to give the farmers time to harvest their crops.

Minister of State for Provincial Affairs for Mashonaland West and chairman of the provincial lands committee Faber Chidarikire, said the decision was arrived at after considering submissions from the farmers.

Vice chairman of the provincial lands committee Temba Mliswa, said some white farmers have been recommended to stay by the communities they operate in.

Others will be considered for future allocations.
