Air Zimbabwe ventures into chicken business

Published: 10 June 2013
The poultry business had become so lucrative at the height of the country's economic crisis that Air Zimbabwe and the Civil Aviation Authority decided to get into the business and fly out day-old chicks to earn forex.

According to The Insider, this was said by the managing director of Irvine's Day Old Chicks, David Irvine, who seemed to be thriving on his connections with several of President Robert Mugabe's top lieutenants.

Mr Irvine was offering advice to central bank governor Gideon Gono to make his farm more profitable by reducing overcrowding and improving feed delivery.

He described Godwills Masimirembwa, then head of the National Income and Pricing Commission, as a "half-baked chicken farmer".
