President Robert Mugabe on Wednesday indicated that the few remaining commercial white farmers will be removed from the land they are occupying, whether they bought it or acquired otherwise.
Mugabe told thousands of rural farmers in Mashonaland West province during the launch of a new A1 Model Settlement Tenure Permit that white people in Zimbabwe should not own land although they would be allowed to own businesses.
“I was with Mashonaland West provincial party chairperson Temba Mliswa yesterday (Tuesday) and he gave me a list of 35 white farmers we hear are still on the land. I am told they are being protected in some instances by cabinet ministers and politicians in their specific constituencies. That is wrong and we will not allow that,” said Mugabe. “We will have no mercy for white people regarding the land, they cannot own our soil.”
