Following the continuous dying of cattle in one of Zimbabwes most arid provinces, chiefs in Masvingo province are asking for the government to help them with tractors in order to sustain villagers with food through the traditional chiefs granary known as “Zunde raMambo.” In an interview with Hevoi FM News, chief Nemauzhe said that Chiefs are always expected to fulfill this obligation.
“We have a mandatory role to feed people. People expect us to deliver food to them during crisis. The cultural practice of having people coming to till our land is slowly heading towards the abyss due to lack of resources. Most of the people`s cattle perished due to January disease exacerbated by drought in the previous years. We therefore ask for the government to intervene by giving us tractors,” said Chief Nemauzhe.
Efforts to get in touch with the Masvingo Provincial Development Coordinator, Jefter Sakupwanya for a comment were fruitless as he could neither pick our calls nor respond to our messages with regard to this issue.
