– The Minister of State for Masvingo, Shuvai Mahofa has advised people in the Lowveld to exercise caution when they employ people running away from Renamo war in Mozambique as some of them are actually rebels disguising as refugees.
She said such people may end up stealing from them or compromising their security.
Mahofa was speaking at a meeting where she addressed new farmers given sugarcane plots under a controversial scheme where 4 000 hectares of ripe sugarcane is being taken away from Tongaat Hulett and parcelled to the farmers two weeks ago.
Hundreds of Mozambicans are said to be fleeing war in their country and ending up in the Lowveld and Manicaland.
Mahofa said that there should be proper security vetting as Renamo bandits might disguise themselves as if they are looking for employment while looking for food and clothes to feed their colleagues in war.
She called for security vetting before employing such people.
"We were instructed to warn you over the issue of Renamo bandits. There is war in Mozambique and many people are coming to our country running away from the war. Many of those people are genuine refugees but there is a worry that Renamo bandits might take that opportunity to come into the country searching for supplies. I urge sugarcane farmers not to employ such people since they may end up stealing from them. Security vetting should be undertaken first before employing them" said Mahofa.
Chipinge South legislator Enock Porusingazi told The Mirror that his constituency is one of the most affected by the situation, with over 300 refugees most of whom have relatives in areas like Garahwa, Mabeye, Mupungu and Hwakwata flocking back due to the ongoing war in Mozambique.
