The Head of State and Government and Commander-in-Chief of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces, President Robert Mugabe has been commended for availing seed and dipping chemicals for farmers in Matabeleland North province.
Officiating at the disbursement of the Presidential Special Well-Wishers Inputs Programme at Lupane Business Centre,Â Governor and Resident Minister for Matabeleland North province, Cde Thokozile Mathuthu, said President Mugabe is a people-centred leader who understands needs of Zimbabweans.
Cde Mathuthu said the inclusion of dipping chemicals is commendable given the fact that most farmers in the province are into commercial ranching.
Under the programme, each chief was allocated three tonnes of seed and a consignment of dipping chemicals for distribution to people in their areas.
In a vote of thanks, Chief Chana said the Presidentâ€™s goodwill gesture will be put to good use as the seed came on the on-set of the rains.
Farmers are also expected to get fertiliser.
