Zimbabwe: Land Audit On Cards

Land audit is on the cards to ascertain the number of beneficiaries of land reform and establish those that are productively using the land.

In an interview, Lands and Rural Resettlement Minister Dr Douglas Mombeshora said the audit would determine whether or not Government still needed to acquire more land for resettlement.

"We plan to do an audit to see how many farms have been distributed and how many have taken up what they were offered," he said.

"The audit will also give us an insight if there is still need for us to acquire more land."
