By A Correspondent- The police have arrested 100 people engaging in violent clashes over a land dispute.

The violent clashes involved two groups in Harare’s Whitecliff.

Trouble started when the instigating group went around attempting to evict people from their houses, claiming ownership of the land.

The which the waring groups were fighting for belongs to property developer, Eddies Pfugari Properties, which the residents illegally occupied 10 years ago.

It also emerged that the company had obtained a High Court order to evict the invaders. Eddies Pfugari Properties said they were not involved in yesterday scuffle as it was negotiating with government to settle the issue amicably.

One of the residents who refused to be named told NewsDay that the chaos was caused by one Shepherd Mushati who was illegally selling stands on land belonging to Eddies Pfugari Properties.

Police arrested the violent groups and released them without charges.
