Member of the House of Assembly for Beitbridge-East, Cde Kembo Mohadi was officiating at the hand-over ceremony of phase two of the Ndambiâ€“Zhove irrigation scheme in ward seven in Beitbridge.
Cde Mohadi thanked the world vision for spearheading the project.
He however said the success of the project depends on the commitment of the community to grow from subsistence to commercial farmers.
He said the stream that draws water from Zhove dam has set the paceÂ towards plans to create a 60 kilometer greenbelt, aimed at making the district the bread basket of the Province.
Cde Mohadi warned NGOs against meddling in Politics saying it is important that they seek to complement government efforts of bringing development to communities.
Speaking at the same occasion, the Organisationâ€™s National Director, Mr Edward Brown expressed optimism that the project will transform the lives of the 80 families, most of which are from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Currently 7, 5 hectares of the â€˜18 hectare-schemeâ€™ have been put under the Winter Wheat crop.
