President Emmerson Mnangagwa and the Chief Secretary to the Office of the President and Cabinet Dr Misheck Sibanda have been called upon to account for the USD$3 billion that went missing after treasury funded the Command Agriculture program.

On Friday the Permanent Secretary and Finance Secretary in the Ministry of Agriculture said they do not know what happewned to the money because the program is running under the Office of the President and cabinet.

Beauty Zhuwawo the wife of former Minister Patrick Zhuwawo said,. "If you called for their CVs you will find they are appropriately qualified however what does one do when they are told the program will be run under OPC. Biti should haul Dr Sibanda to the public accounts committee. He is the weak link. The buck stops with him on this one."

However, Professor Jonathan Moyo said Mnangagwa is the one responsible for the disappearance of the money.

"Yes Misheck Sibanda should be held to account but the buck stops with Mnangagwa! At least Parliament has helped to get govt officials to confirm what has been said here before. Now the command agriculture loot-story is official!"

MDC Treasurer General David Coltart said, "It is common cause that Mnangagwa was the lead actor in Command Agriculture which is where this money disappeared. This is a scandal of unfathomable proportions. But all we get is silence from the regime."
