GOVERNMENT’s inclusive development drive is bearing fruit in rural communities, with villagers from Makoni West benefiting from various empowerment projects including boreholes.

A consultative meeting on developmental issues with local legislator Dr Jenfan Muswere held at Gurure Primary School in Makoni West’s Ward 26 turned into a showcase of the Second Republic’s developmental projects.

The projects include sinking boreholes, nutritional gardens and a school computerisation programme, among others.

“Honourable introduced a piggery and poultry project for us. We are able to send our children to school. He also sank bores at every business centre and gave us flour to start bakery projects,” said one of the villagers.

Another added, “We are happy that Cde Muswere is promoting positive developments. Roads have been rehabilitated and we now have enough clean water in our ward.”

“We thank Cde Muswere for water projects and assisting the vulnerable,” another noted,” another villager noted.

Traditional leaders are convinced developments taking place in Makoni West are testimony of President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s servant leadership style.

The village head, Mupambawashe said ” l have over 8000 people in my village and no one is dying of hunger. We are being given food and Honourable Muswere delivers mealie meals regularly. Schools are being given books and here as you can see there is a water project. Every three months the elderly are given food. All roads are rehabilitated.”

Local traditional leader, Chief Makoni said,” I am happy with the rehabilitation of roads and sinking of boreholes in my area. I see that in Makoni every village will be having boreholes by next year.”

Chairperson of the Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Women Affairs, Community, Small and Medium Enterprises Development, Honourable Getrude Mutandi spoke on the impact of developmental projects among women and youths.

“We are seeing that every village is benefiting from water projects. This helps women to do their chores and improves sanitation and hygiene situation. This ensures the establishment of gardening projects and improves food security. Our President is leaving no one behind and as you can see this school is being connected to water infrastructure,” she said.
