WATCH: Stampede For Food At Energy Mutodi’s Home

The Deputy Minister of Information Publicity and Broadcasting Services, Energy Mutodi has said that there was a stampede at his home as residents in his constituency, Domboshava, scrambled to get food assistance from their representative in Parliament.

Posting on Twitter, Mutodi said:

Stampede for food. These families in Domboshava interrupted my sleep in the chilly Sunday morning as they jostled & shoved each other by the gate to the MP’s house, expecting anything they can take home to save starving children. Help someone during this lockdown. Donate food.

The little I got they took it all. I am appealing to well-wishers to help me feed these people.

The COVID-19-induced lockdown in the country has worsened the preexisting socio-economic crisis that has manifested in food shortages and inflation.

Before the unfolding of the novel coronavirus, Zimbabwe was already receiving food aid from the World Food Programme and other well-wishers to head off starvation in the country.

The lockdown blocked sources of livelihood for many who were already living on hand to mouth.

  1. Here’s a thought: How about getting once productive farms running again? Oh… Wait a sec… All those who WERE doing this productively AND creating jobs at the same time, had their LAND and PROPERTY STOLEN BY A MOB OF ZANU-PF THUGS! You’ve voted them back in again, so hurry up! Get farming! Sort the problem out! You have the land, so it’s now up to you!

  2. In 1992 We had white farmers but we ate kenya /yellow maize from outside. Above comment is misplaced.

  3. The definition of stampede is used very loosely, how can what looks like a pretty orderly queue be called a stampede. Next the lighting of a match will be called an explosion of fire.
