landowners were compensated for the acquisitions.

the committee has also seized 200 equipment used for encroachent during operations.



'the committee demands that citizens substantiate land claims" he said. 'citizens who fail to do so will be deemed illegal occupiers and instructed to vacate the land within a period of 10 days."

'refusal to comply will result in forced repossession and occupiers will be liable to pay associated costs" he said.

land encroachment has dropped 80 percent over the past five years thanks to the availability of equipment for repossessing illegally seized lands he said. 'the committee's awareness campaigns on the matter are yielding good results."
