More People in Zim need food


Harare - The Zimbabwean government estimate of the number of people in need of food aid has risen to 2.9 million in rural areas, an official was quoted as saying on Monday, blaming inflation for the growing demand.
The government announced earlier this month that it planned to feed about 2.2 million people, but Lameck Betera of the civil protection unit of the transport and communication ministry said more were in need. ...

The UN World Food Programme estimates that four million of Zimbabwe's 13 million people are in need of food aid.
