Speaking about his farming activities the president boasted about his produce to the Sunday News. Said the Zanu PF leader:
I am not a cellphone farmer. My brothers move around researching on the latest technology and how it can be used at the farm. As a result I am expecting between 12 and 14 tonnes per hectare in terms of maize.
We do, however, use cellphones in our production purposes. I have a pumping station that serves nine pivots collecting water from a distance of 7 kilometres and that is when I use a cellphone to operate the latest technology. It is all about technology, moving around seeing technology and how to apply it because what is necessary is that each hectare must produce more.
This was said by the president long back as he was urging the farmers to use latest technology in farming but not in instructing how they should farm with you the farmer absent.
