The Zimbabwe Multi-Donor Trust Fund, Zimfund, is looking at concluding its multi-million dollar energy project in Chitungwiza by end of November, with revelations that at least 2 million people will benefit directly from the initiative.
The fund, a collaboration of seven donor countries that partnered with Zimbabwe and administered through the African Development Bank, is targeted at bridging the infrastructural deficit faced by the country on water and energy, estimated to require at least US$20 billion over the next decade.
The Chitungwiza sub-station which falls under the Emergency Power Infrastructure Rehabilitation Project is almost complete, an initiative which will have a bearing on the livelihoods of at least 2 million people in and surrounding Chitungwiza.
Massive projects are also being done in Kwekwe, Bulawayo and Hwange where the fund will inject over US$150 million towards rehabilitation and set up of energy projects.
A similar initiative is earmarked for Mutoko.
