Joseph Mtakwese Made is a Zimbabwean politician, currently serving as Minister of Agriculture.

He was the Minister of Agriculture[1] before being moved to the position of Minister of Agriculture Mechanization, with Rugare Gumbo replacing him as Minister of Agriculture. Made has been accused of overseeing the destruction of the agricultural sector in Zimbabwe when he was minister.[2]

Made was nominated as ZANU-PF's candidate for the House of Assembly seat from Makoni West, a constituency in Manicaland, in the March 2008 parliamentary election.[3] He was defeated by Webber Chinyadza of the Movement for Democratic Change, receiving 2,585 votes against 6,187 for Chinyadza.[4]

When the national unity government was sworn in on February 13, 2009, Made became Minister of Agriculture again.[5]
