Thirty families at Mara farm in Ruwa are living in the open with school children and the aged being subjected to the rainy weather conditions.
The families have been in the open for close to four years now.
It is now close to four years since the families were relocated by the farm owner to the open space.
Speaking to ZBC News, the former Mara farm workers who are now leaving as squatters in Ruwa said their misery started when they requested to be paid their dues after having worked for years without salaries.
After seeing their plight, UNICEF donated some tents which are now leaking with the aged and school children being the most affected by the rainy conditions.
After evicting the workers from the farm houses, the owner of the farm only identified as Mr Dube has since turned the properties into lodgings with each occupant allegedly paying US$15.
Efforts to get comments from Mr Dube were fruitless as his phone was not reachable.
