The ruling Zanu PF government says it will not deviate from the promises to resuscitate the economy as clearly stated in its election manifesto where issues of food security, infrastructure development and industrialisation are among key priorities.
Government remains committed to improve the welfare of its citizens through its efforts as a number of economic resuscitation measures such as the revival of the industry, construction of dams and rehabilitation of key infrastructure such as roads are among its top priorities said national chairman and Minister of Defence and War Veterans Cde Oppah Muchinguri-Kashiri during the ruling party’s victory celebrations held in Buhera west constituency this weekend.
Cde Muchinguri-Kashiri thanked the people of Buhera for resoundingly voting Zanu PF into power and promised that the construction of Marivanyati dam will be followed by similar projects in the dry region district with more boreholes going to being drilled.
“Construction of dams in Buhera that is largely in regions 4 and 5 as well as drilling of boreholes is high on the government development agenda. We thank the electorate for resoundingly voting for President Mnangagwa and the ruling party as it affords Zanu PF to turn around the fortunes of the country,” she said.
Cde Muchinguri also took the opportunity to warn unscrupulous business persons who are unjustifiably hiking prices stating that the long arm of the government will catch up with them.
“We warn unscrupulous businesspersons who sabotage the economy to stop the malpractices hence forth as their activities are bleeding the economy. Government will not stand and watch saboteurs destroying the economy,” she said.
Former Finance Minister and Zanu PF Secretary for Finance Cde Patrick Chinamasa urged the people of Buhera to be united in order to achieve set development targets while Buhera west legislator Cde Soul Nzuma said he seeks to transform the lives of the ordinary people in his constituency by implementing a number of developmental projects.
“We thank the people of Buhera for voting Zanu PF into office. There is now a need for the people to unite and work together to achieve developmental targets that have been lined up by the ruling party,” said Cde Nzuma.
Meanwhile, Minister Muchinguri said the country will take advantage of the vast mineral wealth as well as sound economic policies to attract more investments and turn around the economy.
