VP Mnangagwa reprimands Jonathan Moyo for criticising Command Agriculture

In an interview, Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa said he challenged Higher and Tertiary Education, Science and Technology Development Minister Professor Jonathan Moyo for his public utterances on Command Agriculture. Moyo has been a vocal critic of the program, despite being a beneficiary of the scheme.

Said Mnangagwa:

The major attack of Command Agriculture came from my colleague Professor Moyo, so I met him.

He is a beneficiary of Command Agriculture. He has 80 hectares, very good crop in Mashonaland Central, so when I met him I said my brother, but you criticise Command Agriculture when you are benefiting so much and we are supporting you.

…I said no! but you understand you are in Cabinet, we always explain these things in Cabinet, and we discuss these things in Cabinet. This is why each time I have opportunity to discuss these things, I mention what actual funds have come to the programme, that is what has happened

…In fact, those who criticise will have eaten. They do not criticise when they are hungry, so we must make sure we produce more food for them to eat and criticise.
