AGRICULTURE minister Joseph Made was at it again last week when he blamed unknown saboteurs and commercial farmers for allegedly destroying the sinking economy.
Made, largely to blame for the country’s current food crisis, told business executives attending a post-budget breakfast seminar that commercial farmers who had their farms issued with Section 8 Notices by government were now hiding combine harvesters in warehouses.
“We know the saboteurs,” Made said. “They are now hiding combine harvesters in warehouses. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, former farmers are holding on to them to sabotage the country.”
The minister said government was trying its “level best” to deal with the issue of property rights because this had been raised by some commercial farmers who are challenging their eviction notice in court.
“We will however amend the Land Act,” Made said.
