Second Republic working to better livelihoods

Story by Josephine Mugiyo, Diplomatic Correspondent

PRESIDENT Emmerson Mnangagwa says the Second Republic will continue to work towards improving the livelihoods of the people through the implementation of various projects.

He was speaking during the first-time voters rally at Mucheke Stadium in Masvingo this Friday.

The attainment of food security, building rural economies and creating employment is among the priorities of the Second Republic as often enunciated by President Mnangagwa.

The President outlined to thousands of people how the Second Republic is working to better livelihoods.

“We are lifting people out of poverty and into prosperity. We are constructing dams for irrigation. Here in Masvingo, we are constructing dams and I know some of them do not have irrigation as yet. We also have the Gwayi-Shangani Dam which is being constructed in Matabeleland.”

The President also had a word for the young generation, telling them that no sector of the economy is out of bounds for them, hence they have a significant role to play in nation-building.

“No sectors are out of bounds for you. Say no to drugs. Parents and guardians you have a role to play in the government as we are creating employment opportunities for the young people,” he said.

?President Mnangagwa also stressed the need for the young generation to be proud of where they come from.

On the 23rd of August, Zimbabweans will head for the polls and once again the President has called for peace.

“As we approach the 2023 harmonised elections preserve peace, voting does not require you to sweat.”

The nomination court will sit on the 21st of this month ahead of the harmonised elections.
