Councillor Takes State to Court Over Mugabe Farming Input Scheme

  • VOA Staff

A councillor in the Midlands province is preparing to take the government to court over presidential agricultural inputs said to be distributed only to Zanu PF supporters.

Willard Moyo of Ward 29 in Silobela told VOA Studio 7 some villagers, who were recently denied the inputs in his ward by war veterans and suspected Zanu PF supporters, are taking the matter to court.

Moyo said to make matters worse, these people allegedly used his signature to distribute the inputs that included fertilizer and maize seed.

But Zanu PF activist and political commentator, Morris Ngwenya, said the villagers are making a wrong move.
