Vice President Joice Mujuru says some cabinet ministers are suspected to 
have been involved in the looting of state subsidised farming inputs this 
year provided by the Grain Marketing Board (GMB).

Mujuru is quoted in the state controlled Herald newspaper as saying the 
cabinet ministers and some Zanu-PF and GMB officials are believed to have 
resold the inputs including ammonium nitrate and maize seed to unsuspecting 
farmers.

The vice president said she recently informed President Robert Mugabe about 
the suspicious activities of some of the corrupt cabinet ministers believed 
to be involved in the GMB scam.

Mujuru, who did not reveal the names of the ministers, further said Zanu-PF 
members are being seriously divided by free agricultural inputs.

The agricultural season plunged into a crisis this year after the farming 
inputs were looted.

Deputy Agricuture Minister Seiso Moyo said government does not have the 
names of the ministers involved in the GMB farming inputs scandal.
