The Zimbabwe Land Commission says it needs adequate funding in order to handle complaints and disputes regarding agriculture property.

Chairperson of the Land Commission, Ms Tendai Bare said they are keen to ensure that they execute their mandate without any hiccups hence the need for adequate funding.

“Land is a very important resource especially now that the country has programmes such as command agriculture. We need to be in a position where we have a database that will even assist the country’s policy makers regards land use patterns in the country as well as ownership patterns,” she said.

The Land Commission which has a strategic role given the country’s quest to achieve food self sufficiency, recently decentralised establishing provincial offices.

Land boundary disputes and double allocation, are some of the challenges being attended to by the provincial Land Commission offices.
