Zanu PF Matabeleland North Province has revealed that all is in place for the visit to the province by President Emmerson Mnangagwa this Friday.

As part of President Mnangagwa’s campaign trail, Lupane’s Somhlolo Stadium is the next port of call with the Zanu PF Matabeleland North provincial leadership indicating that all districts are currently busy mobilising members to attend the rally while all administrative preparations are on course.

The Friday visit will first see the President launching the Command Livestock Programme in the province, with farmers set to receive heifers at ARDA Jotsholo in the morning before the afternoon rally set for Somhlolo Stadium.

Zanu PF Matabeleland North provincial chairman, Cde Richard Moyo said the visit by President Mnangagwa is a sign that he is a man on a mission to turn around not only the fortunes of the province but the country at large.

“It is important because he brought many developmental projects. He visited the Gwayi-Shangani dam, and in Bulawayo he visited the Nkayi road project and was also present at the Hwange Thermal Power Station ground breaking, and he continues to develop more developmental projects to Zimbabweans,” he said.

On Command Livestock, the provincial chairman said Matabeleland North Province was looking forward to benefitting from the programme that has been described as a game changer for the sector.

“All the people have been waiting for this programme. We have been given land so we were waiting for the launch of the Command Livestock Programme to kick start our projects here,” said Cde Ndlovu.

Some of the issues expected to be addressed by the President include health, agriculture and general plans to uplift the economy.
