Govt Allocates Farms To Private Doctors
The government is allocating land to medical practitioners in private practice across the country’s 10 provinces.
Close to 372 medical practitioners under the Medical and Dental Private Practitioners Zimbabwe Association (MDPPZA) are set to benefit.
MDPPZA president Johannes Marisa yesterday confirmed that President Emmerson Mnangagwa had responded to their request for land. Said Marisa:
We wrote a letter to His Excellency President Emmerson as an association [MDPPZA] requesting if the government could give us land and consider our members for import duty exemptions.
I am happy to announce that it took the president at least five days to respond to our request and he has offered us the land.

Members will have to choose the province where they desire to have the land.
It should be noted that this land is for agricultural purposes since we indicated that as medical practitioners.
MDPPZA secretary-general Cletos Masiya urged members to utilise the land that they would have applied for.
In one of the letters seen by StandardPeople, addressed to the Provincial Affairs ministers, the Lands, Agriculture, Fisheries and Resettlement ministry permanent secretary John Bhasera urged provincial land officers to offer land to MDPPZA members. Wrote Bhasera:
The following private health practitioners under the Medical and Dental Private Practitioners Zimbabwe Association expressed their keen interest in agriculture transformation and desire to participate in the Agriculture Recovery Plan.
