Acting President Joice Mujuru, has called on the government to continue funding the construction of the Tokwe-Mukosi dam.
Cde Mujuru was speaking after a progress check of the dam.
She expressed hope that the dam will be completed in the next 22 months as per current plan.
The construction of the dam began in 1998 and was halted a year later due to lack of funds.
The dam will have the capacity to hold eight billion cubic metres of water, making it the biggest inland water source in the country capable of irrigating 25 000 hectares of land.
