A parliamentary fact finding mission on the US$40 million Youth Fund was aborted in Bindura after unruly elements disrupted proceedings.
As the fact finding mission got underway in Mashonaland Central’s Bindura town, rowdy youths disrupted proceedings threatening the parliamentary portfolio committee for harbouring a factional agenda.
An unruly youth banged desks in front of the committee members while accusing the portfolio committee chairperson Cde Justice Mayor Wadyajena of hidden political motives while constantly referring to the legislator as ‘munin’na’.
In its fact finding mission across the country, the portfolio committee has heard of how the US$40 million Youth Fund channelled by the government through banks was abused.
The committee has heard of interference by senior ministry and government officials, abuse of the fund through falsification of beneficiaries’ addresses, funds being given to beneficiaries who never received them among other issues.
