Provincial Development Coordinator Mr Tafadzwa Muguti has urged the City of Harare to be proactive and enforce eviction judgements passed in its favour. The City of Harare have successfully received court judgements against land barons and also served eviction letters to illegal occupants some dating backs years. “Surprisingly up to now there are not yet enforced. My office and the security services within the Province are at pains to understand why we are watching as people are building illegally only to then demolish after full construction. Enforcement should be proactive and not reactive. Let’s be agile in our approach to protect open spaces and wetlands in our city,” he said. “All illegal settlements should be evicted and those who have an opportunity to be regularized, planning should commence immediately through the Ministry of Local Government and Public Works. “But kindly note there will be no regularization without prosecution. In every illegal settlement there is someone or a group of people who pocketed money for themselves. This is fraud and therefore arrests should be made. Those settled illegally should work with the municipality and Police in exposing land crimes instead of protecting criminals,” he said.
