The government has lined up a number of economic and infrastructure development projects in Buhera as part of its grand strategy to ensure development reaches all corners of the country in order to effectively revive the economy.

Addressing Zanu PF inter-district rallies in Buhera, the Minister of Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services, Cde Monica Mutsvangwa said the government seeks to turn Buhera district that is largely in regions four and five into a green belt and embark on road rehabilitation projects, among other initiatives to improve the standard of living in the district.

Minister Mutsvangwa said the construction of Marovanyati dam and the current tar surfacing of Birchenough – Murambinda road reflects on the able leadership of President Emmerson Mnangagwa who is championing developmental projects across the country.

“We want Buhera to be a green belt. The Murambinda – Birchenough road is being constructed. Unity and economic revival remains the cornerstone of development,” she said.

Buhera north and west legislators, Cde William Mutomba and Cde Soul Nzuma hailed the initiatives by the government especially in the face of recurrent droughts and pledged to continue spearheading a number of developmental projects in the district.

“We thank government for making plans that will decisively deal with the problem of hunger in the district,” Cde Mutomba said.

“As legislators, we are also spearheading a number of developmental projects in the district,” Cde Nzuma said.

Meanwhile, Minister Mutsvangwa has reiterated that the government’s turnaround strategy is anchored on peace, investments and fighting corruption, stating that the 2018 elections are a closed chapter and dismissing calls of election legitimacy by the MDC Alliance.
