Nkayi villagers are reported to have gone for three months without getting their pay under the food for work programme.

Zimbabwe Peace Project reported that in Nkayi South constituency at ward 29, it is alleged that villagers who had been working under the food for work program had not received their allocation for 3 months March - May period.

"It is said that when they enquired about their dues from the Social Welfare Officer, Ishmael Makamba and Thabani Tshabalala (village head), they were only advised that they would be given in the next program since the remaining maize stocks
were left for ‘campaigns'," said ZPP.

"Makamba and Tshabalala are on record of giving out maize to individuals that
were not part of the food for work programme."
