Speaking to The Herald yesterday, Deputy Chief Secretary to the President and Cabinet Mr Justin Mupamhanga said that audit teams will be dispatched this week to audit usage of Command Agriculture inputs countrywide. Mapamhanga said that security details will be part of the team.
This week we have 10 teams of four people going to all the eight provinces where farmers got inputs under Command Agriculture to assess the usage of those inputs. The teams will include one official each from the ministries of Agriculture, Mechanisation and Irrigation Development; Finance and Economic Development, Sakunda Holdings and a security detail. Mashonaland Central and Mashonaland West provinces will each have two teams of four people. Apart from their audits, they will also be gathering vital information for the new season. The teams will be assisted by Arex officers who recently received 200 motorbikes for that purpose from Sakunda Holdings.
