MASVINGO – Some 11 illegal settlers from Mushandike Resettlement Village 18 B and village 19 B under Chief Charumbira and Chief Bere were granted ZWL$100 000 bail by Magistrate Tariro Linnet Mudzingo yesterday.

Courtroom five was packed as families that were settled in some places for up to 30 years came to hear their fate.

The suspects arrested by officers from the Ministry of Lands, Agriculture, Fisheries, Water and Rural Development and the Police are Mubaiwa Madzivire (42), Chipiwa Musara (64), Gift Mheni (39), Raymond Marondedze (49), Innocent Matewe (53), Edmore Gotosa (46), Neby Mazani (59), Rose Mukondodzi (51), Tamson Mazani, Josias Mazani (34) and Moline Mabvera for occupying gazetted land.

They occupied the land in 1997 to 2003 during the land distribution tenure and they told the court that they were given the land by their village heads.

The matter was postponed to January 26, 2024, for trial and they were ordered to reside at their addresses until finalisation of the matter.
