The bananas donated by President Mugabe to hungry villagers in Gutu were donated to him by fellow dictator of Equatorial Guinea, it has been revealed.

Guinea strongman, Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo also donated other foodstuffs worth thousands of dollars which will be distributed to rural drought stricken provinces.
The second consignment of the aid arrived in Harare today and three more are expected.

In an interview on the sidelines of the off-loading trucks in Ruwa today, the Principal Director Ministry of Public Service, Labour and Social Welfare, Mr Simon Masango said ever since President Robert Mugabe declared the El-Nino induced drought a state of disaster, a number of countries and non-governmental organisations have positively responded, among them Equatorial Guinea.

He said the government values the first consignment of 20 tonnes of tubers and bananas as they are Equatorial Guinea’s staple food. The second consignment consists of rice, salt, dried fish, cooking oil, canned chicken and fish.

The food will be distributed to rural drought stricken areas through drought relief committees.
