Addressing mourners at the burial of his wife, Idaishe Olivia Chengu-Charamba in Mutorashanga on Tuesday, George Charamba disclosed that the Command Agriculture scheme was funded by Sakunda Holdings.
Let it be known that Command Agriculture is not being funded by public funds, nothing is coming from taxpayers. The money is coming from Sakunda Holdings through their company Trafigura fronted by Kuda Tagwireyi. These are committed Zimbabweans bound by the love of their country who came to fund the project.
Sakunda, which is currently involved in several major government energy projects, is believed to have invested $199 million into the scheme where farmers who received free agricultural inputs were expected to pay back with grain deliveries to the Grain Marketing Board.
