He commended President Mugabe for initiating the Presidential Well-Wishers Input Support Scheme which has helped in the revival of the Zunde Ramambo concept and enhancing national food security.

Turning to the Community Share Ownership Trust, Dr Chombo said the initiative has brought a new dimension to rural development.

The conference which ends this Saturday attracted over 230 chiefs and their spouses and was running under the theme, ‘Traditional Leaders, Promoting Cultural Values and Practices for Sustainable Social Economic Development.’

Various issues such as the constitution-making process, agriculture and food security, the referendum, social and cultural practices and the welfare of chiefs were top on the agenda.
