ZANU PF Secretary for Lands, Land Reform and Resettlement, Dr Ignatius Chombo, says government is working on a policy to assist women in venturing into full time agricultural activities through funding, the allocation of land and availing inputs.
Speaking on the sidelines of the ZANU PF womenâ€™s league induction workshop in Harare, Dr Ignatius Chombo said Government is impressed with womenâ€™s farming projects across the country.
Dr Chombo said he will soon be holding discussions with relevant ministries on modalities to ensure that more land is allocated to women.
â€œAt the present moment land is in the hands of a few minority males and we hope to address the situation,â€said Chombo
Dr Chombo said ZANU PF is impressed with the way women party members have managed to venture into agricultural activities in spite of limited funds and inputs.
At the workshop, members of the ZANU PF womenâ€™s league resolved to continue working with Government on farming policies in line with the land reform programme.
The land reform programme which was embarked by the Government ten years ago is among other factors aimed at empowering the black majority in an effort to boost agricultural production and facilitate macro- economic growth.
