Police spokesman Paul Nyathi said the operation was an on-going exercise targeting land barons who have been duping unsuspecting desperate people.
He urged those who were duped by any land baron to go to the nearest police station and make a report.
“We are aware that some of the suspects will try to resist arrest. We are urging them to comply with the police as the operation continues,” he said.
“The Zimbabwe Republic Police assures members of the public that the law will certainly take its course on anyone who is involved in criminal acts of pegging, parcelling out land and offering it to people fraudulently.”
