The case has been dragging since 2013 when FBC was granted an order by the High Court Â to evict the settlers. The illegal settlers were served with eviction summons two weeks ago and some of them heeded the call and vacated. Â The remaining settlers were peacefully removed from the area with the assistanceÂ of Harare North Member of Parliament, Hourable Mudambo who Â managed to find them land to settle in Hatcliffe. Â On humanitarian grounds, FBC has provided Â temporary shelter for the settlers as well as transport to move them and all their belongings to an alternative site organised by Mr. Mudambo.
This piece of land is part of our property earmarked for development and as such, must be vacated for its intended use. FBC Building Society has in the past 6 years successfully built and sold over 870 low, medium and high density housing units around Harare and select cities, in support of the governmentâ€™s initiative to provide decent and affordable accommodation to the nation. We seek to increase our footprint in property development across the length and breath of the country.
