Mugabe says no secrecy in awarding hunting licences


President Robert Mugabe today called for transparency in the allocation of hunting licences saying the current operations are shrouded in secrecy. “We cannot run a country like that, a situation where we have forests and our people are excluded from them. We do not know what is happening there. We do not know the activities taking place, less still we do not know how much money they are getting and how that money is accounted for. The way people come in and out seems to be done in secrecy. We do not know what the Boers are doing in the forests.” Whent old that the licences were awarded by tender Mugabe went on: “A tender which only a Minister might know. Why can’t it be open like what happens on the farms.”
