2022 Rally

In February 2022, a large part of Trymore Kanopula’s manifesto was based on getting title deeds for properties to victims of land barons, and getting services normally required to gain those title deeds. He said The first batch of 5 000 households are expected to be handed over title deeds to their properties next month.

Tongai Mnangagwa (MP, Hunyani), speaking during the launch of Harare South’s road rehabilitation programme, said the process was a national programme to correct colonial disparities which saw residents in most high-density suburbs failing to get title deeds. This is a national project starting here in Harare South whose main thrust is to assist residents in underdeveloped areas to obtain title deeds, since about 90 percent of houses in high-density areas have no title deeds. At least 5 000 households in this constituency are going to obtain documents for their homes by next month. [5]
