Security Minister: Mealie Meal Will Soon Be Plentiful

State Security Minister Owen Ncube on Wednesday told parliamentarians that the shortage of mealie meal will soon be a thing of the past.

Ncube said this during the question and answer session in the National Assembly while responding to Proportional Representative MP, Lynette Karenyi-Kore (MDC Alliance), who had asked him for an explanation on why people were starving if there was indeed enough maize in the country. Said Ncube:

Every week government delivers maize to silos, but some people have been hiding mealie-meal. Some of these people have been arrested and so mealie meal will now be available.

Speaker Jacob Mudenda came to Ncube’s rescue after Mbizo MP Settlement Chikwinya (MDC Alliance) had raised a point of order, saying they were not getting adequate responses and proposed that the session be deferred to Thursday.

Ncube had briefly assumed the position of acting leader of the House and his responses were considered vague and lacking substance.

  1. this government has always been laying to the nation for years they have been sayin we have enough fuel in the country but fuel ques never ceased.on corruption no single big wig has served a sentence even though government has admitted that there is massive corruption in state.RBZ governor Mangudya once promised to resign if the bond money system does not serve the economy but he still hangs on and is now even refusing to take the blame
