Government minister blames monkey for National food crisis. The writer of the news article featured on New Zimbabwe.com highlights Dr. Joseph Made, the minister of Agriculture in Zimbabwe as the man who blamed a monkey for the food shortage in Zimbabwe. In this interesting article, the minister, who addressed a parliamentary session stated that the current food deficit and consequent drought situation in the country were due to an interference in the production of fertilizer by a vervet monkey. This monkey, he alleges is responsible for causing extensive damage to an electrical transformer at Sable Chemicals, a company that manufactures fertilizer in Zimbabwe. The damage caused by the monkey which was electrocuted in the process, has hampered preparations for the coming season, necessitating the importing of fertilizer from neighboring South Africa. The nation however, was told to look on the bright side since this incident had saved a lot of electricity that Sable Chemicals company would have used in producing the fertilizer. Unfortunately the electrocuted monkey was not available for comment.
