President Robert Mugabe took Local Government, Public Works and National Housing Minister Saviour Kasukuwere to task for reportedly selling land earmarked for youths housing to Prophet Walter Magaya and political bigwigs.

Prophet Magaya leads the Prophetic Healing and Deliverance Ministries that has pledged to build 20 000 housing units in Harare and Mutare.

This comes a few weeks after the President availed 1 000 hectares of land for residential development to youths in Harare as part of efforts to fulfil Government’s economic blueprint, Zim-Asset, which targets provision of 300 000 housing units by 2018.

The land is in Shawasha B, Norton and Harare South.

Youths — as exposed by our sister paper The Sunday Mail — have reportedly been muscled out of the project with most of the land going to Prophet Magaya and shelf companies belonging to political bigwigs, among them Minister Kasukuwere’s cronies.

President Mugabe, who a few days ago at the National Youth Assembly meeting in Harare slammed corrupt allocation of residential land, yesterday took Minister Kasukuwere to task over the shenanigans.

“Ko nyaya yevakomana yemastands iri kufamba sei? (What is the story on residential stands)” the President asked before the start of the Politburo meeting.

“Ndakanzwa kuti mastands makatengesa, makatengesera ananaMagaya. ( I heard you sole stands to Prophet Walter Magaya)”

Minister Kasukuwere responded: “No shefu. Vakanga vashaya zvekunyora. There is nothing like that. I am the responsible Minister and hakuna zvakadaro zvakaitika. (There is nothing like that)”

Not convinced, President Mugabe retorted: “No, No, ndiri kunzwa kuti land yakatengeserwa ananaMagaya. Makatengesa, makatengesa! (No, you sold those stands)”

Government, which is targeting 300 000 units by 2018, has launched a national housing programme to provide housing for all with particular attention to youths.

The land where alleged corruption has erupted is at Chishawasha B farm where youths were allocated 300ha of the 2 848,77ha that lies along Arcturus Road.

The offer, according to sources, had been withdrawn under unclear circumstances amid reports that some bigwigs were using shelf companies to mask their allocations. - The Herald
