Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa has agreed to meet ruling ZANU-PF Members of Parliament to discuss issues affecting their constituents.

A post on Twitter from the party on Wednesday said the MPs met Mnangagwa on the same day at the party headquarters to relay concerns from the constituencies they represent.

“The MPs request to meet the President and different ministers often was granted, with the President suggesting a meeting at least once every month, here policies and reforms will be articulated and explained,” the party said.

The party also said in response to a query on land evictions, Mnangagwa had said steps were being taken to bring to account all illegal evictions.

He also said that even though some the evictions were legal, they should be carried out in a humane manner and the people relocated accordingly.

The government is currently evicting people who have illegally settled on farms previously owned by white commercial farmers. Enditem
