    Parliamentary Committee incensed by Chiredzi DA


    – The Parliamentary Portfolio Committee of Lands, Agriculture Mechanisation and Irrigation which was on a tour of Chiredzi last week expressed disgust at the absence of the District Administrator, Clara Muzenda from their tour.
    Neither Muzenda nor officials from her office were there to meet or accompany the 10 legislators touring projects in the district.
    The DA is the highest administrative Government official in a district.
    The legislators were on a day  tour of the district  including assessing the performance of Tshovani Irrigation Scheme. Speaking during the tour, committee chairperson,  Rtd Gen Kallisto Gwanetsa said it was disgusting to note that the DA who is the highest Government official was also there to meet the Parliamentarians. He said the DA's presence was critical for supply of information to the legislators.
    However, Muzenda said she was not invited to the meeting in the first place. She however, said she sent one of her officers to represent her Kechemu Zindoga Madzikanda, the District Arex Extension Officer person who was supposed to give her representative transport did not pick the official for the meeting as the meeting was taking place outside town.
    "I personally informed her that the committee is coming but I am surprised to see that Muzenda is not hear. I am not talking about it because I am a local legislator but because I am chairing a Parliamentary committee which is on national duty tasked to find solutions to improve the food situation in the country.
    "We travelled to many provinces and all DAs attended meaning that they took these matters seriously. This district will always be left behind unless the DA starts to be serious about national issues," said Gwanetsa.
