    GWERU – Controversial and illegal sale of urban State land in the Midlands will be on the spotlight as the Commission of Inquiry into the Sale of State Land in and around urban areas since 2005 starts its investigations in Gweru on Monday.
    The Secretary to the Commission who is also the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Justice, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs, Virginia Mabiza confirmed the programme in an interview with The Mirror.
    Apart from suspected land barons the Commissioners will question key stakeholders like the Minister of State for Provincial Affairs, the Provincial Administrator, Provincial Lands Officer, Provincial Physical Planning Officer and Town Clerk, City Engineer, Cooperatives and land beneficiaries during their investigations.
    “We will be in Gweru on Monday and our mandate is to look into the illegal sale of urban State land since 2005.
    “Some of the issues that we will look into are to do with fraud, double land allocations and prejudice,” said Mabiza
    Some of the land developers who may be called for questioning include Smelly Dube of River Valley Properties, Tinashe Manzungu of Tinshel, Mwanambo who was behind Ascot Extension project to mention a few.
    The Commission has already started sending out data collection forms and invitation letters to those who will appear before it.
    The Commission has already completed its work in several provinces including Masvingo, Harare and Manicaland.
