Norton legislator (independent) Hon Temba Mliswa has said that Zimbabwean farmers must take a leaf from President Emmerson Mnangagwa who is “professionally” running his farm.
Posting on Twitter on Thursday following a tour of Mnangagwa’s farm in Kwekwe by a Chinese Tesso Group and Political Actors Dialogue (POLAD) forum members recently, Mliswa said:
One thing you can never take away from @ is how he is a real farmer, passionate and effective. He runs a very productive farm run professionally and he isn’t a multiple farm owner. If most of our farmers could emulate that we won’t have food shortages.
These remarks are made when most of the Zimbabwean farmers are failing to produce enough to feed themselves let alone sustain the local industry and export.
Most of the farmers bemoan lack of government support and lack of adequate resources, among them, machinery and other inputs.
