"I have a farm in Hurungwe which I got through the land reform programme, it can be taken away.

"I have a lot of things to lose, I have my life to lose and I dare whoever says I am power-hungry" he said revealing that he comes from Shurugwi under chief Banga and headman Mufiri.

"What's there for an MP, how much money do you get? $2 500 and a car. Is that worth the risk?.
