ZANU-PF Politburo member Professor Jonathan Moyo yesterday launched a blistering attack on Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa, saying he was not the most senior party member in Zanu-PF as he lauded Defence Minister Dr Sydney Sekeramayi with a string of superlatives.
Prof Moyo, who was speaking during a SAPES Policy Dialogue dubbed “Third Pan African Lecture – Wither the Nationalist project in Zimbabwe”, said VP Mnangagwa would not advance the nationalist project, accusing him of fronting a faction in Zanu-PF.
VP Mnangagwa is on record distancing himself from the so-called Lacoste faction.
Prof Moyo, who was accompanied to the panel discussion by embattled national political commissar Cde Saviour Kasukuwere, his brother Mashonaland Central chairman Cde Dickson Mafios, Cde Patrick Zhuwao and Cde Wonder Mashange among others, said VP Mnangagwa was not the most senior member in Zanu-PF after President Mugabe as he singled out Vice President Phelekezela Mphoko and Dr Sekeramayi, heaping praises on the latter.
THE Command Livestock model will be tabled before Cabinet in a few weeks time and if approved will then be rolled out across the country, Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa said yesterday.
Responding to questions during the International Business Conference held at the Zimbabwe International Trade Fair (ZITF) in Bulawayo, the VP said the command livestock model was part of the broader food security and nutrition thrust aimed at boosting economic growth and creating jobs.
Once approved, he said Government would clarify the modalities of the programme implementation to livestock farmers and other stakeholders.
The model draws inspiration from the successful Command Agriculture scheme which has so far been implemented in the cropping sector.
THE Government has secured funds to pay for up to 1, 3 million tonnes of grain deliveries expected from farmers following the success of the Presidential Inputs Support and Command Agriculture schemes, Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa said yesterday.
Officially opening the Zimbabwe International Business Conference at the Zimbabwe International Trade Fair, VP Mnangagwa said Government was still looking for more funds to cover the remainder of the expected two million plus tonnes of grain harvest this season.
“In order for farmers to prepare for winter wheat farming in earnest and pay for goods and services and other necessities, Government will ensure that farmers are paid on time,” he said.
“We already have enough funds to pay for 1,3 million tonnes of grain delivered to the Grain Marketing Board and we are still working on sourcing further funds because we believe that grain intake will exceed two million tonnes,” he said.
