The newly appointed Youth Ministry deputy minister has rejected a govt land cruiser V8 and said it can be used in other departments The Anchor reports. According to the Anchor, the reason why he rejected the vehicle is that he said he was OK.
Asked for comment by the publication, Tinoda Machakaire said:
Why are you worried about me having a car, we have several issues we need to deal with as a nation, the youths and the arts sector have problems that need to be dealt with. Those are issues I am busy liaising with my boss Minister (Kirsty) Coventry to address not to dwell on issues that have nothing to do with development or delivering the promise.
Tinoda is one of the 6 new cabinet members who were appointed by the president a few weeks ago when he reshuffled the cabinet.
