Mpofu sabotaged Zambezi water project
Published: 30 March 2018
Matebeleland Zambezi Water Trust chairperson, Dumiso Dabengwa has accused former Mines Minister, Obert Mpofu, of sabotaging the water project, reported.

He said Mpofu refused to grant the trust a special mining concession in the mineral rich Matebeleland North province to fund raise for the Matebeleland Zambezi Water Project (MZWP).

Dabengwa, who is also the Zapu leader, said the trust once approached then President Robert Mugabe seeking money to fund the Zambezi project which is touted as the panacea to the western and southern region's perennial water shortages.

Mugabe then referred them to Mpofu who was then the Mines minister to grant the special concession to the trust but Mpofu allegedly ignored the request.

"After Mugabe's directive, we wrote a letter to Mpofu asking him for the special mining grant which Mugabe had acceded to. However, Mpofu never responded to our request up to this very day," said Dabengwa.
