President Emmerson Mnangagwa has thanked the people of Midlands Province and the entire Mapanzure community for heavily nurturing him at a young age.

Speaking to thousands of people at Runde Primary School in Zvishavane where he was having a first thank you rally to celebrate his victory, Cde Mnangagwa said the suffering Zimbabwe is currently facing will come to an end as investors are coming to partner the nation in its developmental thrust.

He said through unity, love and hard work Zimbabwe will leap frog other neighbouring countries on its developmental journey.

The President said currently they are mandated by people who want to start business in the country including Germany, Britain and France. 

Vice Presidents Dr Constantino Chiwenga and Cde Kembo Mohadi also attended the inaugural thank you rally which saw the entire leadership of Midlands attending.

Meanwhile, Dambudzo Clinic which is a stone throw away from his (President) traditional residents was given an ambulance by Bitumen Company as part of their corporate social responsibility.

The President said it will engage the company (Bitumen) to repair the roads across the country since MDC run urban councils failed to repair roads prompting the central government to intervene.
