Zanu-PF youths lose land wrangle against Muduvuri

Zanu-PF youths lose land wrangle against Muduvuri
Published: 14 August 2019 (100 Views)
Zanu-PF youths in Kadoma have been kicked out from land belonging to businessman Jimayi Muduvuri's Macsherp Holdings.

This comes after the Commission of Inquiry into allocation, occupation and ownership of land in and around urban local authorities has ruled that Macsherp is the legal owners of the 100 hectare piece of land.

The commission said the company was duly allocated that land by the ministry of Local Government and National Housing.

This came as Zanu-PF youth committee dubbed Youth Lodgers Committee also laid claim to the land. The ruling party youths appeared before the commission claiming they own 40ha of the land in question.

They claimed they were allocated the same piece of land by the ministry of Local Government and National Housing.
Commissioner Petronella Musarurwa said Macsherp Holdings was the rightful owner of the land.

"From a legal point of view, I'm not privy to how Macsherp Holdings obtained it (land). It gets the offer letter first. The letter was not withdrawn or given to someone else. You can personally pursue the matter.

"I cannot conclusively say it's genuine or not but will have to call ministry of Local Government officials to verify. But as it stands, the land belongs to Macsherp Holdings," she said. The commission said the youth committee should be a registered entity as a cooperative first before they can be allocated land.

"Form and register your cooperative first before you can be allocated land. The ministry of Local Government regularises applications for land," Musarurwa explained. The commission heard that when the youth sought advice from Kadoma City Council, it was told that the land they wanted to occupy was already allocated to Macsherp Holdings.

However, the youths said they were not shown the offer letter in favour of Macsherp Holdings by Kadoma City Council. An offer letter authored by Local Government ministry officials shows that Macsherp Holdings was allocated the land on June 12, 2014.

The youths' offer letter for subdivision of 40 hectares is dated August 15, 2014.

The youths were also questioned by the commission why their offer letter had two different dates on it.
