Homeless, Landless, and Destitute: The Plight of Zimbabwe’s Tokwe-Mukorsi Flood Victims

The report documents human rights issues related to the dam project, conditions at Chingwizi camp to which the flood victims were initially relocated, abuses related to the resettlement of the flood victims, including the government’s failure to compensate many of them and to grant them the right to have a say in the decision regarding their residence. The report also explores the government’s misuse of humanitarian aid to coerce flood victims to accept official resettlement plans and documents the resettlement of the flood victims on Nuanetsi Ranch where they are unable to build homes or grow crops of their choice as the title of the land is in dispute.
