Murisa Phase One stands pegging now complete

Manyame Rural District Council is advising all occupants of land falling within phase 1 of Murisa Rural Service Centre’s approved layout plan covering Chitsvatsva, Kaseke, Murisa, Marimbi, Kuora, Rusirevi and Washayabunha villages that pegging of stands is now complete.
Allocation of stands to occupants in the council data base has now commenced with the following activities currently in progress:
1. Holding of interviews for occupants in the low density and industrial areas to assess their capacity to pay and develop stands in these areas.
2. Issuance of offer letters to successful occupants in the low and industrial areas as well as to occupants in the high and medium density areas.
3. Offer of alternative stands to occupants whose existing developments now fall in roads, stands for other uses (schools, churches, clinics, commercial, etc) and other condemned sites.
4. Processing of lease agreements, showing of pegs and granting of development permission to occupants who have paid deposits of allocation fees.
Occupants who already have offer letters are advised that they are NOT allowed to:
1. Pay allocation fees before paying penalty fees in full,
2. Apply for a lease agreement before paying the required deposit for allocation fees,
3. Submit building plans before signing lease agreements, and
4. Commence any form of development on the offered stand until they are shown all pegs by council and have approved building plans.
Occupants currently occupying roads and other condemned sites, and have been offered alternative stands are encouraged to move to the new sites so that council can be able to open roads and provide other services in the area.
Council has noted with deep concern, attempts by some people to occupy and erect new developments within the pegged area. May such people be warned that there is now a comprehensive data base on the status of each stand in the whole area. All new occupants will not be considered for stands allocation and their structures shall be demolished without any option for alternative land.
United we stand co-operative area
Occupants of stands created by the United We Stand Multi-purpose Cooperative along Duri River on the Manyame RDC side are also advised that the layout plan for the area which is part of Murisa Rural Service Centre phase 2 now awaits approval by the Department of Physical Planning.
Once the layout is approved, council will commence pegging of stands which will pave way for allocations/ relocations as well as servicing of stands. Occupants of stands created by the cooperative are encouraged to visit our Beatrice offices to register and collect letters that enable them to pay penalty fees.
Members of the public are also reminded and warned that the cooperative and all its agents or representatives no longer have anything to do with land administration in the area.
Villages not incorporated
into urban centres
The Seke community is advised that in line with Government Audit Report on issues of Land Management and Allocation in Seke District, ONLY the whole of Chitsvatsva, Murisa and Kuora villages, and portions of Kaseke, Rusirevi, Washayabunha, Marimbi, Masona, Nechiva and Chitanda villages were incorporated into Murisa Controlled Development area and are being planned into urban settlements.
At Dema ONLY Mutsvairo, Mushaninga, Zimunhu, Chinamano and Chitate villages will be incorporated into Dema Controlled Development area while Musoko, Marikopo and part of Chakahwata villages already fall within Dema Growth Point boundary in terms of S.I 379 of 1982.
All the other villages in the district will remain communal with land administered in terms of the Communal Land Act (Cap 20:04) and the Traditional Leaders Act (Cap 29:17).
It is a criminal offence for individuals to sell or allocate communal land. Council is the administrative authority with the overall control over the allocation and use of communal land.
Right to occupy and use communal land for any purpose is only granted through a Communal Land Permit which council issues in consultation with the Village Assembly. To date 36 villages’ applications from wards 1, 3, 4, 7 and 8 have been approved. Pegging of communal stands in these villages will start on April 4, 2016 and the exercise is expected to end by mid-May 2016.
