The Zimbabwe Anti-graft body, ZACC, has set its sights on companies and individuals who diverted Command Agriculture inputs to personal use, The Sunday Mail reports.
According to the publication, there are farmers who used their offer letters to get inputs in some cases for fertiliser and seed for as many as 300 hectares, which they in turn sold to big fertilizer and seed companies. The companies in question, in turn, repacked the inputs and sold them.
ZACC Chair Justice Matanda-Moyo speaking to The Sunday Mail said:
We are still investigating this matter but so far we have closed some warehouses. We are giving the owners a chance to explain themselves at ZACC offices, failure of which the commission will seize the inputs which were looted from the Grain Marketing Board (GMB).
ZACC will do a sweep on the farmers and the big companies because we do not tolerate corruption
According to the publication, ZACC found 440 tonnes of fertiliser in one of the raided warehouses and 1 tonne of sugar beans seed
