Responding to a question by Harare Central legislator Murisi Zwizwai who had asked if government intends to buy vehicles for chiefs and headmen before the 2018 elections, Rural Development minister Abednico Ncube revealed that government has already bought cars for 226 traditional chiefs.
It is already something in the pipeline. Let me just assure you that very shortly our chiefs will be given cars. At least we have 226 registered chiefs … So, do not worry…Madam Speaker, something is in the pipeline. We are through with the Minister of Finance and Economic Development.
However independent legislator for Norton Temba Mliswa asked why government was only buying cars for 226 chiefs when the country has 2800. His question was not responded to as the deputy speaker overruled it saying she had not recognised him among those she had allowed to ask questions.
