ZIMBABWE – MDC-T deputy president Thokozani Khupe today said President Mugabe has failed to spell out how many jobs his government will create saying his Presidential speech failed to speak on issues of hunger and poverty.
Speaking in Parliament today, Khupe said Mugabe has managed to create 2,2 million vendors.
The Third Session of the Eighth Parliament resumed today following the comic official opening of Parliament last week.
“Mugabe failed to say how employment will be created and instead of ZimAsset creating 2,2 million jobs, he created 2,2 million vendors” she said.
She also demanded results of previous land audits saying many of these audits were done but no implementation.
The Zanu PF regime has been promising to embark on lands audits but nothing has been done.
The land audit seeks to redress various issues, among them land disputes, cases of multiple farm ownership, account for land that is being under-utilised as well as investigate reports that some resettled farmers were leasing out their farms to white former commercial farmers.
Sometime last year, Lands and Rural Resettlement minister Douglas Mombeshora revealed that his ministry had secured $7 million from the European Union and United Nations Development Fund to carry out a two-year land audit programme.
