The call was made by the Vice President, Cde John Landa Nkomo in an interview with ZBC News in Bulawayo.

He said the government is working to ensure that rural communities  are educated on the indigenisation programme.

The Vice President said rural people  who are the custodians of  some of the natural resources  being  exploited by major corporates  should benefit  from the indigenisation programme.

 

Cde Nkomo said the government launched the indigenisation programme that is expected to see black Zimbabweans being the majority shareholders in most companies through the acquisition of  the 51 percent stake.
