Government will not abuse donations for flood victims: Phelekezela Mphoko

Vice President Phelekezela Mphoko assured donors and humanitarian agencies that the money and goods donated for victims of flooding in Matabaleland will not be abused or be diverted by the government. The Vice President made the assurance when he was pleading with the donor community for $200 million in aid.  The government has been accused of corruption and misappropriation of funds in the past.

Said Mphoko:

We are appealing to the international tax payers and to our own tax payers in Zimbabwe.

We are very very careful with your money and whatever gestures you will give us they will be put to proper use and will reach the affected people

We want to come up with a structure which will in actual fact also satisfy you, satisfy us, everybody.…. you think that we take your money and use for other things. But we want to make sure that your money goes to the affected people.
