CHIREDZI –
United Nations (UN) Country Representative Bishow Perajuli has condemned politicisation of food aid and said the principle of international humanitarian aid is impartiality, humanity and non-interference.
Perajuli was speaking after touring humanitarian aid programs which are being supported by UN in Chiredzi District. He said there is great concern over the issue of political interference in the distribution of food aid in the country. He also said humanitarian assistance should be based on needs and all those in need should be assisted.
He said UN will hold workshops which are aimed at orienting all officials who deal with food aid so that they will make sure that food aid reaches to all people who are in need.
"The office of The President has given very strong guidance that there should be no politicization of food aid but that does not mean that there are no concerns over the matter. Actually we are making plans to hold workshops with officials who work with food aid so that they will be educated on fairness in food distribution.
"All UN `s international support must be based on needs and the principle of humanitarian aid is impartiality, humanity and non-interference and that's the principle we apply in-terms of food assistance. It is possible to say this does not happen or it happens, it is there in the villages," said Perajuli.
The UN chief's comments came after the province experienced some of the worst politicization of food aid with some serious cases happening in Gutu North Constituency.
