The Zanu PF government is ready to work with the Mangwe community of Matabeleland South Province to deal with issues that are affecting the lives of people in the area such as poor communication services.
Mangwe district in Matabeleland South Province is afflicted with a number of challenges that include poor cellphone networks and the non availability of radio and television signal impacting negatively on the community’s desire to be part of the national development agenda.
Currently the community depends on Botswana for radio, television and cellphone services.
In his interactive engagement with the Khalanyoni community of Mangwe, Cde Simon Khaya Moyo the Zanu PF National Secretary for Information and Publicity who is also the Acting Minister of Information, Media and Broadcasting Services said efforts are being made to ensure that radio and television signals reach the area for the community to benefit, while the cellphone service providers have shown commitment in investing in the area to improve communication services.
Cde Khaya Moyo explained that the current situation is a result of over 20 years of isolation of the country from the international community as a result of punitive sanctions imposed on the country following the land reform programme.
He, however, said the current government has made overtures to join the international community of nations an issue that is set to bring about huge investments into the country.
Cde Khaya Moyo also impressed on the people of Mangwe to vote for President Emmerson Mnangagwa, Zanu PF National Assembly and local government candidates in the coming elections.
