Information coming from Matabeleland North indicate that the the Provincial resident minister Richard Moyo will preside over the handover of 17 cows, cash and medicines that have been mobilised by a farmers Cattle Mall to support a Nkayi  family that lost 21 cattle recently.

The move has been interpreted by social analysts as hijacking the cause that was done by farmers out of good heart.

Sources that spoke to this reporter said the  animals arrived in Nkayi on Wednesday afternoon at the Mpofu homestead at Dolahali  area in Nhlekisa village.

The District Administrator is said to have indicated that the cattle will be officially handed over by Minister Richard Moyo as part of the protocol of welcoming the donation to the village.

Social analyst  Thabo Nkiwane said if the reports were true, the act was against the spirit of Ubuntu.

"If the reports that the political leadership of the area wants to hijack the cause that farmers organized among themselves, then its tragic and unAfrican." He said. "As far as it stands, the  political leaders never availed themselves when the tragedy struck therefore it will be opportunistic for them to reap fame where they did not sow."

A representative of Cattle Mall was expected to officially handover the animals at the household after the Bulawayo event which took place on Wednesday morning.
