Mnangagwa Warns Tongaat Hulett Against Monopolising Sugarcane Farming

Addressing Zanu-PF supporters at Mucheke B arena in Masvingo to drum up support ahead of the July 30 harmonised elections, President Mnangagwa said Government will not hesitate to intervene if Tongaat Hulett resists helping indigenous people to grow sugar cane.

Said Mnangagwa:

We have sugar estates here in Masvingo province which are under Tongaat, there is an issue here on Tongaat Hulett, yes we need the company to continue operating here, but we also need our people to get small sugar cane plots so that they also grow sugar cane because the land is ours. We are talking to them because they must share the cake they are enjoying with us, they must use their capacity to open more land for irrigation because they have the capital and the machinery to do that and apart from that, developed land should be given to our people, they must not try to monopolise sugar cane farming and if they are thick-headed they should know that we can be thick-headed three- fold.
