The Chipinge community has commended the government for the progress made in the resurfacing of Tanganda-Kondo road stretch during President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s first 100 days, saying it is one of the new administration’s success stories for this community.

The government through the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure Development embarked on the resurfacing of Tanganda – Checheche road following an outcry by the public that the road was the worst in the country.

Bitumen World was then given a tender to resurface the road with the local company covering one kilometre every day, a development that has seen motorists and residents praising the new dispensation for walking the talk.

“We are really excited at the developments here, especially with regards to the fast pace at which the resurfacing of the road is taking place. It gives us confidence that the new government is capable of transforming the economy,” said one motorist.

Chipinge West legislator, Cde Adam Chimwamurombe and the Minister of State for Manicaland Province, Senator Monica Mutsvangwa, who were assessing the progress made so far, said they are happy to have met the target of rehabilitating the highway within President Mnangagwa’s 100 days in office.

“The resurfacing of this road within the first 100 days has shown that the new government is serious in improving basic infrastructure in the country and the country’s road network,” said Cde Mutsvangwa.

Chipinge is famed for producing many agricultural products, hence the need for good roads.

The resurfacing of the road will improve efficiency for the farmers, while also increasing public confidence on the new administration and the ruling Zanu PF party.
