By A Correspondent- The managing director of Fertiliser, Seed Grain (FSG) Steve Morland denounced officials from the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development for lying to Parliament that they advanced more US$400 million for Command Agriculture fertiliser to his company.
Morland appeared before the parliamentary portfolio committee on Agriculture chaired by Gokwe Nembudziya MP Justice Mayor Wadyajena on Tuesday.
The funding we received is a total of just over 400 million in RTGS and Treasury Bills. I can categorically state that we never received even US$1 from government and we can prove that because we have all the documentation.
A few months ago Ministry of Finance principal director Zvinechimwe Churu and director of budgets and capital expenditure Fidelis Ngorora told the Tendai Biti-led portfolio committee on Public Accounts that FSG had been advanced the amount. They also said the firm had no known address or contact person.
