ONCE again the Zimbabwe Independent has unearthed the truth – this time about the shortage of foreign currency due to reduced tobacco production.
on May 23 quotes Duncan Miller of the ZTA as saying “it was very difficult for the newly resettled farmers…”
I find it a little strange that Millar omitted to refer to what we may call “old farmers” and their many thousands of employees and their families, and also the many other Zimbabweans for whom it also happens to be “very difficult”.
Perhaps he could shed some light on the perception that his association has fully supported this radical change in the production system, and inform his “old farmers” what they ought to do.
Taking things to their logical conclusion, can it be deduced that Millar and his association are also responsible for the drop in production and the shortage of foreign currency?
