Lands minister Herbert Murerwa said two weeks ago, however, that there was no money for the probe. Murerwa has not commented on why the government has not taken up the European Commission on its offer to fund the entire audit.
Marchal said: “We are aware that the government needs US$30 million for the land audit. However, we have not received any concrete request with explanations of what is needed. We remain ready, of course, to discuss this at any time.”
