At least one hundred and seventy two farmers from a Triangle Ranch in the Masvingo province in Zimbabwe have been evicted from their farmland by the the country’s government.
This eviction comes just eight months after the farmers were granted the lands.
Reports say the farm belonged to Tongaat Hulett before it was given to the small scale farmers who were using at least 2 000 hectares to grow sugar cane with support from the government .
According to the Minister of Lands and Rural Resettlement, Douglas Mombeshora the withdrawal of the offers had been made under the provisions of the land reform and resettlement programme.
Now, some of the farmers have accused the government of not sticking to its promises.They claim to have invested in the farms and were not being compensated.
