CHIREDZI – Martin Hlelele who is Headman Magudu has vowed to defy Government in its plans to evict about 1 000 of his people from a Ranch where they are alleged to have settled illegally.
The illegal settlers are supposed to be moved from Magudu Ranch to pave way for Integrated Construction Projects, an investor who is into cattle ranching and other agricultural projects. The settlers have stayed put since the year 2 000.
The farm used to belong to Arda.
Hlelele said it is impossible for almost a thousand people to move away to pave way for one person. He said the eviction notices which were served on his people by Government recently are just papers which do not have any bearing. He also said the ranch belongs to their ancestors and they will resist any move to evict them.
"Magudu is our ancestral area and my people will not move an inch from it. Nearly 1 000 people were served with eviction notices last week but a paper cannot force people to move away.
"They moved into the farm in year 2000 and their children were also settled in the area due to the demand for land so Government should come and regularize those children as moving many people to accommodate one person is not possible" said headman Magudu.
