Farmers in Marondera West constituency are set to benefit from a horticulture development programme introduced by the Zanu PF Women’s League as part of empowering rural people.

With Chihota communal area of Marondera known for its horticulture production, Zanu PF provincial member, Cde Spiwe Mukunyaidze has come up with a programme to boost production after donating water pumps to each ward to be used by the farmers.

“These pumps are going to be accessible to all farmers to improve production so that you will have more produce to take to the market,” said Cde Mukunyaidze.

The water pumps were given to ward councilors who will be coordinating the programme.

Youth leaders from the area also received bicycles to use in monitoring youth empowerment programmes.

Soccer teams which participated in the Marondera West soccer tournament were also given prizes which include shields and cash.
