Agriculture ministry warns about fake Facebook account

The Ministry of Agriculture, Water, and Land Reform has issued a public warning over a fake ministry account on Facebook which asks members of the public to complete a form to obtain a grant.

The scammers are impersonating the Ministry of Agriculture, Water and Land Reform, the ministry says.

Ministry spokesperson Jona Musheko says the ministry has no such grant on offer.

“We do not require the completion of forms with banking information, nor do we request payments to individuals/individual accounts,” he says.

Musheko says the ministry’s official page is under the name ‘Ministry of Agriculture, Water and Land Reform’.

Any suspicious activity should be reported to the ministry’s public relations division at (061)208-7604 or 081 156 3613.
