MDC Alliance legislator for Mutasa Central, Trevor Saruwaka has accused some government officials of being 'captured' after they tried to block him from accessing 15 tonnes of rice on behalf of vulnerable communities in his constituency.
She was very patient as I narrated my ordeal at the hands of Mutasa GMB and Social Welfare crew despite instructions from their provincial bosses to release the rice.
He said during the lockdown period, people were visiting his house complaining of hunger and he decided to visit GMB for a courtesy call and checking on whether the rice was still secure.
"I sent a messages to District Development Coordinator Tendai Kapenzi and District Social Welfare Officer Phebion Nyangani and Mutasa GMB manager one Machekera informing them of my intention to start rice distribution early on Tuesday 27.
"Mutasa District Government, social welfare, GMB, and those who played a part in trying to deny me my allocation of 15 ton rice for the people of Mutasa Central.
