The Government of Zimbabwe seeks to speed up the allocation of Land to Zimbabweans with a special programme that includes those in diaspora.
Speaking during a post Cabinet press briefing Information and Publicity Minister Monica Mutsvangwa said cabinet had adopted a concept of special vehicle for accelerating the allocation of Land to Zimbabweans.
“The model involves the government providing land to special vehicle where Zimbabweans, including those in diaspora and local will invest and be given shares. The vehicle creates a viable land marketplace for land through which anyone wishing to access land can go through. This is Vehicle for empowerment, unlocking investment and land value” Mutsvangwa said.
She said Government will obtain land from multiple farm owners and underutilized farms.
“The special purpose vehicle will therefore provide a viable alternative for meeting this demand and will complement conventional land access routes. The land will be obtained from multiple farm owners, abandoned land, derelict land and underutilized land. The concept is being further refined and the nation will be advised of the details in due course” she said.
