A ZANU PF member aspiring to contest the Gutu East constituency in the 2023 elections, Benjamin Ganyiwa, has allegedly taken back his donations of football kits and a grinding mill he had donated to youths.
Ganyiwa reportedly made donations to youths in Gutu East Wards 13, 15 and 39 who rejected them demanding jobs instead.
Ganyiwa, however, dismissed the report but claimed that there were some people who were trying to use his gesture to tarnish his image. He said:
The youths did not reject my donation. I made the kind gesture almost six months ago and I was shocked to discover that some of the youth I intended to help are greedy and wanted to keep the donations for themselves.
The Mirror reported sources as saying that the youths walked away after Ganyiwa offloaded the donations from his vehicle.
They allegedly told him that they did not want soccer balls but jobs.
Ganyiwa is said to have been angered by the snub and he then took his donations to the Zinata area in Ward 13 which is his home area.
The youths in the Zinata area also rejected the donation and demanded jobs.
Ganyiwa reportedly lost patience with the youths and he finally took the donations to his home.
