Shiri ‘donates’ pension to Rushinga

LANDS and Agriculture minister Perrance Shiri has claimed that he has pledged his retirement package to Rushinga district if they vote Zanu PF resoundingly.


Addressing thousands of party supporters at Nhakiwa business centre in Uzumba on Sunday, the former Airforce of Zimbabwe (AFZ) boss said although the area was known for its massive voter turnouts, this time it will be Rushinga.

Uzumba constituency is known as the hotbed of the ruling Zanu PF party famed for high and shocking results.

“I told them (Rushinga residents) that I have set aside my pension so that I can buy 30 cattle to be distributed across the province if they get more voters than this area [Uzumba]. Another party member and businessman in Mashonaland Central [Kennedy] Musanhi also pledged 30 cattle supporting me,” the former air chief marshal said.

“Zanu PF is a party of God, formed by God and it is our desire to take the people to Canaan. Despite the circumstances we are facing for example drug shortages in our health facilities, we are going to overcome all that. We have a leader who was baptised by fire. He was embarrassed in public and you know that, but he is the leader.”

Shiri also claimed relations between Zanu PF and Western countries were on the mend.

Shiri added that Western countries had dumped the opposition MDC-T in favour of the ruling Zanu PF party following the inauguration of President Emmerson Mnangagwa last November.

“ED (acronym for Mnangagwa) brought re-engagement and is mending relations with the West. A few weeks ago the British government gave $100m to Zimbabwe to help in economic development. This means that they are trusting Emmerson Mnangagwa’s government more than the opposition parties. (Nelson) Chamisa and (Tendai) Biti started complaining about what Britain did. Britain wants to work with a good party not puppets. They trust Zanu PF more than MDC party which has no direction,” Shiri said.

“Chamisa and Biti are giving false promises, saying they want to build airports in every village, they say they want a bullet trains from Nhakiwa to Bulawayo yet they can’t fix the roads littered with potholes in the city.”

MDC Alliance spokesperson Welshman Ncube said the party “respects the views of the British and international community, but what I know is that they support the government that is chosen by the people” and were “not talking about a government that there as a result of a coup”.


  1. and if its true temba must stop hunting for the $15bln as it is slowly coming out which individuals have part of the loot

    1. how do know kuti ndovane 15bln Eliasha .He is a dedicated man who loves development chakanaka chakanaka .if Shiri gives his retirement package to Rushinga district we should be proud of it than kungotaura zvekwatisina kuswera .

      1. it is known how much these guys earn and donating a pension means you have another source were you have hoardes and hoardes of cash stashed and the question which begs answers given their pittance salary is where did that excess cash come from, lets ponder over this one for now and forever if there are no forthcoming answers.

        1. Well said there. For once you said something that makes sense

  2. If you are a good leader you dont donate on conditions, voted or not just donate if development is your concern, why waiting to be voted and donate. You know what, your fellow comrade Engineer Munacho Mutezo did that and when he lose he took all his belongings, Lets be mature as far as development is concerned, our roads and hospitals are not in good state and you just wait and see if you win so that you develop, that is nonsense. Be a good Leader Mr Shiri. We respect you and expect positive results from you not this nonsense you are talking about. We dont need your pension for development and change. If your pension brings the economy of this country to a better one then good continue. Revive the economy my dear brother. Hama dzako dzimwe dzirikudzingwa chikoro nekushaya $15 or $25 kumusha uko iwe uda kupa vanhu mombe 30, what for. God will not bless this, put your house in order first.

    1. Agreed, if he was genuine he would donate it now, not later and with no conditions. Shiri does not understand the concept of charitable giving. He does understand being cruel to citizens as he is responsible for crimes against humanity.

  3. We need leader who lead by examples. We need to have the spirit of injecting what we have to the community and country at large. Ndikoko VaShiri.

    1. You don’t give conditions for donation, the moment the donation is subject to various conditions it ceases to be a donation. Its like salary its not a donation because you are given on condition you work.

  4. You don’t give conditions for donation, the moment the donation is subject to various conditions it ceases to be a donation. Its like salary its not a donation because you are given on condition you work.

  5. viruss vigoroso

    what more does Zimbabwe want? here is a leader who is sacrificing good living for fellow Zimbabweans to have better lives. thank you baba, thank you zanu pf

  8. Although we accept your pledge; let me reiterates that; with or without your donation obviously we are going to vote for Zanu pf; not because of your donation but Rushinga like all other parts of the nation greatly supports Zanu pf

  9. Weldone zvaitwa zvekare. Atleast ZANU-PF is recognising kut kune vanhu vanoda rubatsiro… ngazviende mberi

    Pension ne 15billion are two different things. At list minister vanoziva zvodiwa nenzvimbo iyoyo kwete vanotaura zvemabullet train nema airport. At the issue of donating cattle it wl boost the agriculture sector as well. W need smthng meant for development than kuudzwa rubbish nanakamisa

  14. his main concern is development in Rushinga, offering his pension is not a condition bt rather a concern for development. Vote wisely.

  15. ZANU PF has a full capacity of people who can sacrifice their resources to be given to others who are in need even im pro mdc if this is true shiri well done you tempting me to follow your but and make sure you will fulfil it
