The Presidential Inputs Support Scheme, which has seen small holder farmers receiving seed and fertilisers, has been described as the beginning of the end of the economic sanctions imposed on the country by the West.
Speaking to ZBC News at the handover of 5 tonnes of top dressing fertiliser to 500 households at Divaris Shopping Center in Harare over the weekend, Zanu PF Harare Central District One (DCC1) Committee Chairman, Cde Abraham Samshonga said the scheme is one solution to fighting the decade long economic illegal sanctions imposed on the country by western countries.
Meanwhile, 6 tonnes of Ammonium Nitrate fertiliser were also distributed to 600 families from Marlborough at Chichera plot.
DCC 4 chairman, Cde Jason Pasaddi castigated the MDC-T dominated urban councils for slashing peopleâ€™s crops.
â€œThe slashing of the maize crop by the MDC-T led council is a clear indication of their alliance with colonial masters who want to derail the land reform process,â€ said Cde Passaddi.
The beneficiaries expressed gratitude to the Head of State and Commander-in-Chief of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces, President Robert Mugabe and described him as a role model and a man with the people at heart.
The US$33 million Presidential Inputs Support Scheme, which was launched at the Zanu PF Annual Peopleâ€™s Conference in Mutare late last year, has seen more than 10 000 urban families country wide, benefitting.
