Government evicts 500 illegal farm settlers
In an interview after the cabinet meeting, Minister of Lands, Agriculture, Water, Climate and Rural Resettlement Sen. Retired Air marshal Perence Shiri said, "those evictions will take place and the displaced families will need to go back to where they came from. If they have nowhere to go, social warfare will assist them before walking away".
These evictions come after more than a decade of the resettling of people and these are likely to leave families homeless.
