FULL THREAD: Chin'ono Says He Never Received Goats From ZANU PF

FULL THREAD: Chin'ono Says He Never Received Goats From ZANU PF

Prominent journalist, Hopewell Chin’ono has dismissed as lies reports that say he received his Boer goats from the ruling ZANU PF after the party reportedly threatened to take the goats saying they gave him the livestock. In a series of Twitter messages, seen by Pindula News, Chin’ono detailed how he got the goats and imported them from South Africa.

One Taurai Kundishaya, a member of the ruling ZANU PF said the project was initiated by the government as a pass-on project in which beneficiaries were supposed to pass goats to other farmers. Said Kundishaya:

This project was meant to be pass on. Government distributed goats to farmers so they breed and pass to others. Hopewell Chin’ono personalised the project. Now it’s time for the youths of Zimbabwe to demand their share. Here are your goats, just go and collect your share. Down with goatlooter

In response, Chin’ono claimed that he was being victimised for being a government critic. He said:

These are the full documents of how I imported my goats from South Africa. These are the import permits stating that I was importing 35 Boer goats from South Africa. They were issued in November/December 2016 & clearly state that I was importing Boer goats from South Africa.

The SA Pretoria Chief State Veterinarian who examined the goats and passed them to leave South Africa is Dr Gerald Manyatelo.

All the 35 goats are listed on the Bacteriology form which I have attached here. Attached is the South Africa Customs document at Beitbridge.

On left is the

Certificate of Origin document for the goats when they were leaving South Africa. The goats didn’t pay customs duty on the Zimbabwean side because goats are exempt from paying customs duty. Right is the ZIMRA clearance stamp for the transporter.

When the goats got to the Zimbabwean side, the Department of Veterinary Technical Services issued this document. This is the story of how I imported my Boer goats. Now I want ZANUPF and the regime to explain how and when they gave me Boer goats for my community! Havanyare!

I have been and still am a victim of State harassment and also ZANUPF harassment/abuse. I don’t have to say this anymore because you can all see it! I will never abandon my career as a journalist because of this State and ZANUPF harassment. I will not be silenced with LIES!

Every one of my Boer goats came with its individual certificate and they are all registered with the South African Stud Book and Animal Investment Association. I want to repeat this again, I NEVER received a goat or land from the Government of Zimbabwe! I live at the village.

Mliswa Tells Hopewell Chin’ono To Be Strong

29 April 2022

Spread the love

By A Correspondent- Norton Member of Parliament Temba Mliswa  defended opposition aligned journalist Hopewell Chin’ono after reports came out that he had allegedly hijacked a goat breeding program that was meant to assist the community.

State media on Wednesday ran a story on how the government gave Chin’ono land and goats to start the boer goat project.

Said Mliswa on Twitter, “Having seen the concerted attacks against @daddyhope by state media and other organs my message to him is to be strong. It shows how big you have become @daddyhope. The same happened with me but the more I got arrested and  harassed the more I got popular.

“In my years as a politician what I have learnt is that the public isn’t **** as to be swayed by such contrived state propaganda. They can see through it and understand the reasons behind it all. Just stick with the truth and you will be vindicated. People can see through all the propaganda and machinations. You have to develop a thick skin and withstand it all. If I were you I would go for a constituency now because state media is already campaigning for you.

With your robust and articulate approach to national issues I can only imagine what Parliament would be like with you in it with the likes of Biti, Chinotimba, myself in it. It would be livelier and robust. God is the biggest judge @daddyhope  & in due time will rule.”

Meanwhile Chin’ono says his village elders have advised him not to move the goats where they are.

He posted this message on Facebook on Wednesday:

Thank you all for your messages of support and solidarity. The clan elders have said the animals will not be moved from where they are, it is my ancestral land so nothing will be moved.

The regime can come and LOOT and destroy my rural home, we have no power to stop them! It is not our burden, but its own burden. If they do come to LOOT as they promised to do, a time for accountability will one day come.

It is clear that to continue investing in the project is pointless, that is the end of the project for now until we are under a safe environment to live in peace and develop our rural homes without ZANUPF harassment.

This is a clear example of how it is impossible to invest in Zimbabwe and still retain all your rights. A Chinese has more rights in Zimbabwe than myself. Again that is the regime’s burden!

More importantly, I will not be silenced. I shall not be silenced or intimidated from practicing ethical journalism by a rogue group of people. It is a price I am ready to die for, I would rather be killed than to live like a visitor in my own country and I will never run away from Zimbabwe!

Thank you all once again for your support and solidarity which came through messages, emails and phone calls. Please forgive me if I haven’t responded to your messages, they are many.

It’s also unfortunate to have state media marshalled against a private citizen because of national issues they have raised. This is abuse of power and offices. Respect of property rights is already an issue locally, why inflame it again?

Come on Taurai Kundishaya, eat your humble pie. There he is Hopewell has proved that he brought and imported the goats from South Africa. This is why Old People's Home government has failed to run the economy of this country. They create permanent enemies, like they have done with CHIN'ONO. In politics you need not create permanent enemies. Leave Chin'ono alone.
