President: Be fully geared for farming
Posted: Thursday, November 28, 2002

Herald Reporter

PRESIDENT Mugabe has urged newly-resettled farmers to use their ploughs to till the land in preparation for the coming agricultural season, instead of waiting for tractors from the Government.

He said it was imperative for people to be fully geared for the season since time was running out.

"It is encouraging to note that in some areas, crops have already started to grow.

"There are some areas which have not been ploughed, particularly in resettlement areas.

"In the rural areas, some have already started to plough. Do not wait for tractors. Those with cattle must start to plough maybe one or two hectares in the areas, in which they have been resettled."

The President said this when he officially opened a science and administration block at Chikaka Secondary School in Zvimba.

He urged those with tractors to assist those who were struggling to till the land owing to lack of equipment.

He said Zimbabweans should remain united to overcome challenges facing the country. MORE
