The deputy minister of Lands and Rural Resettlement Berita Chikwama has said it is not government policy that people should invade farms.

This was after senator Chief Musarurwa asked if it was government policy for people to just settled anywhere on their own.

"My question is directed to the Deputy Minister of Lands and Rural Resettlement  Chikwama.  May you please explain to us the government policy regarding people who are still engaging in land occupations in the farms and illegally occupying those places?  Are we saying that the land occupations have been revived?" he said.

Chikwana said it is not government policy that people should go and resettle themselves in farming areas.

"As far is the Ministry is concerned, we are dealing with such problems which are now resurfacing, that people just get into the farms illegally and we term them illegal settlers.  What we need to know is that, as the leadership of the communities, please submit the names of the farms affected and those people who are involved and as a Ministry, we will look into the problem," said Chikwana.
