Zimbabwe: Zanu-PF's Input Distribution Scam

press release

The selective distribution of the presidential input scheme in Gokwe vindicates the MDC's repeated assertions that the so called presidential input scheme recently launched by Mugabe at the Zanu PF Head Quarters was nothing but the usual Zanu PF vote buying scheme.

What is happening in Gokwe exposes Mugabe's hypocrisy and insincerity. The all too familiar Zanu PF vote buying antics are not only primitive but very out dated and do not conform to modern dictates of politics.

Mugabe and his Zanu PF should learn from past experience that people cannot be hoodwinked by portions of handouts from those purporting to lead them.

If Mugabe truly represents the national father figure he purports to be, then he should put an end to this scandal and bring the culprits to book. We call upon an investigation into such activities.

As a party, the MDC will continue to fight for every Zimbabwean to benefit from national programmes irrespective of political affiliation, creed or race. It is time people of Zimbabwe distinguish between real people parties from petty partisan groupings obsessed with satisfying selfish personal benefits.

Zimbabweans have suffered enough at the hands of a brutish Zanu PF regime; a lot more have died due to politics induced hunger. Everyone has a right to food and as MDC, we will continue to fight in the Inclusive Government to ensure every Zimbabwean is catered for by government until such a time the nation has fully stabilized in terms of food security.
