Zim@44: Unity, Peace and Development

Story by Bruce Chahwanda, Political Editor

ZIMABABWE’S 44th independence celebrations set to be held in Buhera District of Manicaland province is anchored on a theme that reflects the works and desires of the Second Republic to achieve an upper middle-income society by 2030.

Leaving no one and no place behind is the Second Republic’s mantra, which is being fulfilled during this year’s independence celebrations.

Themed, “Zim @44: Unity, Peace and Development Towards Vision 2030,” the independence celebrations are expected to be an opportunity to reflect on various developmental programmes being implemented by the Second Republic under the National Development Strategy One.

Political analyst, Dr Leopold Chakanyuka says the peace and unity prevailing in the country is the hallmark for development.

“44 years of independence and unity came about as our forefathers united to defeat the colonial regime, we were together with other regional countries such as Mozambique, Zambia, Tanzania. They all came together with us and fought against the colonial regime. As a result of that unity we conquered, nowadays we are no longer fighting, we are talking about achieving an upper middle-income society by 2030, can the President do it alone? NO. We have all of us a country to come together in whatever way we can contribute towards economic development to achieve vision 2030,” he said.

With the country enjoying peace and unity, which are critical ingredients for attracting foreign direct investment, Buhera West legislator, Cde Tafadzwa Mugwadi believes the nation is poised for growth, “The President is very clear in where the nation needs to go, an upper middle income society by 2030, where the standards of living would have changed, where access to water would have improved, so this year’s independence theme dubbed “Zim @44: Unity, Peace and development Towards Vision 2030” exactly speaks to that and in line with what the President has taught us, leaving no one and no place behind that makes us very happy as people of Buhera. Borehole sinking is at the core of rural development, road construction and opening of new roads is the order of the day in rural communities and that can be achieved when there is peace and unity.”

The Second Republic has brought a new format in hosting national events to ensure that every district has a chance to showcase its economy for the good of the country.

Preparations for the 44th independence celebrations are already underway with government providing the necessary support for a successful event.
