News:Mugabe Denies Zanu-PF Is Giving Food Aid To Its Supporters Only

<vote /> President Mugabe yesterday labelled the Zimbabwe Human Rights Commission report that Government officials were distributing food on a partisan basis as falsehoods.

Addressing the Zanu-PF Central Committee in Harare, Mugabe said,

If grain is going to party people and only to them, how are the others surviving there? Kungoda kuita maheadlines chete internationally and havanyare vanhu vanotaura nhema dzakadaro. Nditwo twumari twavanopihwa. Shame! I am sure we all must salute ourselves on the work we are doing in this disregard. Our Labour Minister will explain to us the processes and position.
