Farming inputs politicized

Senior Zanu (PF) officials here have set up a team of chiefs, army officials and members of the Central Intelligence Organisation that will control the distribution of farming inputs scheduled to commence next month.


The aspiring parliamentary candidates in Makoni district: Dydimus Mutasa, Joseph Made and Patrick Chinamasa, who are usually referred to as the Big Three, have been accused of using the farming inputs distribution as a campaign platform for the forthcoming envisaged elections.

Notorious Air Commodore Mutsvunguma who is reportedly eyeing the Makoni South seat is reportedly causing havoc in the constituency, while Made (Makoni West), Chinamasa (Makoni Central) and Mutasa (Headlands) have taken control of the farm input and mechanisation programme.

Perceived MDC-T supporters have been left out, despite the inputs being bought using the government funds from the Ministry of Finance under the farm mechanisation programme.

"Suspected MDC-T supporters were left out and the headmen only wrote names of people who are well known Zanu (PF) sympathisers," said a villager from Chief Chiduku’s area.

War veterans interviewed said MDC-T supporters should not receive anything as the land reform was a Zanu (PF) initiative.

"This is a Zanu (PF) thing so what do MDC people want? They have got money from donors let them go and buy the inputs elsewhere," said Kenneth Machemedze, a well known war veteran in Headlands.
