Zanu PF leaders in Gwanda's Nyandeni area reportedly looted food aid meant for villagers and denied several beneficiaries of the aid access to it.

This was reported by the Zimbabwe Peace Project in its monthly report.

"It is alleged that in Gwanda North at Nyandeni resettlements ward 5, beneficiaries were denied food aid by Bhigo Moyo and several other Zanu PF members. It is alleged that, Moyo and crew took several bags of maize for themselves and only distributed a few bags of maize to some deserving beneficiaries," reads the ZPP report.

"Unfortunately, others returned home without food hampers. Robert Moyo a known MDC supporter is among those that were denied food aid."

Meanwhile it is alleged that there was a partisan distribution of food in Binga North at Siansundu Business Centre on 9 May.

"Chief Saba is alleged to have announced that food aid is provided by the Zanu PF led government and should therefore benefit those who support Zanu PF. MDC-T activists and supporters were removed from the list of beneficiaries," reads the report.
