HARARE , In a shocking revelation by Team Pachedu, it has been disclosed that the Zimbabwean government, under the leadership of President Emmerson Mnangagwa, has allocated a vast area of land to Belarus for farming and mining purposes. The land in question is said to have a total area that surpasses the combined area of Belarus’ capital city Minsk and its second largest city Gomel.
According to the tweet by Team Pachedu, Belarus has been granted 10,000 hectares of land for farming and a staggering 54,650 hectares of land for mining gold and diamonds. This has sparked concerns among many Zimbabweans who feel that the government is giving away too much land to foreign countries.
The allocation of such a huge area of land to Belarus is particularly worrying given that Zimbabwe is currently facing a severe economic crisis. Many Zimbabweans are struggling to make ends meet, and the government’s decision to give away such valuable resources has left many questioning its priorities.
The news has also caused a stir on social media, with many Zimbabweans expressing their outrage and disappointment at the government’s decision. Some have even called for protests to demand that the government reverses the decision and gives priority to the needs of the country’s citizens.
The allocation of land to foreign countries has been a contentious issue in Zimbabwe for many years. Under former President Robert Mugabe, the government embarked on a land reform program that saw white-owned farms being redistributed to black farmers. While the program was aimed at addressing historical injustices, it was also criticized for being haphazard and leading to a decline in agricultural production.
The current government has promised to address the land issue and ensure that land is distributed fairly and transparently. However, the allocation of such a huge area of land to Belarus has cast doubts on the government’s commitment to this promise.
As Zimbabweans continue to grapple with economic hardships, it remains to be seen how the government will respond to the concerns raised by the allocation of land to Belarus.
The land ED gave to Belarus in Zimbabwe has a total area that is bigger than the combined area of Belarus’ capital city Minsk (34,884 Ha) and its second largest city Gomel (13,980 Ha).
Belarus got 10,000 hectares for farming and 54,650 hectares for mining gold and diamonds.
