Zanu PF Zaka Central MP fingered in presidential input scheme abuse

ANU PF secretary for Youth Affairs Pupurai Togarepi has dismissed allegations that top party officials are sponsoring machete gangs across the country.

Zanu PF Member of Parliament for Zaka Central Davison Svuure stands accused of abusing the presidential inputs programme through partisan distribution.

This comes after President Emmerson Mnangagwa put aside  farming inputs to people in rural areas for distribution across the political divide.

“The President gave us inputs of seeds and fertilizer to be accessed through the MP and councillors,” Tererai Tererai, a councillor for Ward 8, said.

He said the MP, however, blocked volunteers who are constructing Murerekwa Primary School and are being assisted by Miriro Children Care networks in Partnership with Tzuchi Foundation from accessing the presidential inputs scheme.

“The people who are denied access are those people who have volunteered to assist and construct the school which was destroyed by Cyclone Idai,” Miriro Trust chairperson Tanaka Mutava said.

The presidential inputs scheme is intended for those disadvantaged people in community but MP Svuure is involved in corruption and nepotism,” he said.

” We have never politicised the construction of the destroyed school but I am very surprised by the attitude of the MP,” Mutava said.

“I am surprised that people are denied access to the presidential inputs which is a positive initiative from our President, who needs to assist in alleviating drought, “he said.

Svuure’s mobile phone was unreachable at the time of publication.
