Zanu-PF and Government officials have hailed Chivi South legislator Cde Killer Zivhu for initiating developmental programmes in the constituency that are uplifting the people’s lives in line with the Vision 2030 enunciated by President Mnangagwa.
The officials were speaking at a function on Wednesday organised by Cde Zivhu to enable people in his constituency who failed to attend the Meet the People Rally addressed by President Mnangagwa in Mwenezi in February to hear the President’s message.
Similar functions were held at different venues throughout the constituency, with at least 13 beasts being slaughtered to feed the gatherings. “We have gathered here to embrace the new dispensation of a successful governance in our country,” said Zanu-PF Politburo member Cde Lovemore Matuke. “Our President has declared no one is going suffer any threats of drought or hunger because we have enough land and resources to utilise.
“We have heard complaints that the price for basic commodities are increasing way above the majority’s reach. I would like to assure everyone that the government is introducing silos that will sell these commodities at a favourable price.
“As the President has promised, our province will not have children walking for miles to go to school, hence schools, clinics and more infrastructure are in the process of being established.” Addressing the same function, Masvingo Provincial Affairs Minister and Zanu-PF provincial chairman Cde Ezra Chadzamira said there were noticeable achievements in Chivi South which are in sync with President Mnangagwa’s vision.
“Vision 2030 should be commenced with positivity,” he said. “It begins with us Zimbabweans, not foreigners or rebels. The Honourable Chivi South constituency MP, Dr Zivhu, has been doing quite well to fulfil what he promised to do for the district.
“I can see most of you now have electric connections at your homesteads and tap water. It is not enough, as some of you would say, but everything has time of its own. Our region is blessed with the Tokwe Mukosi dam, hence a lot can be done to change our lives. That’s why we are uniting to engage in agricultural projects to promote self sustenance.”
Cde Chadzamira said people were capable of working on projects that could support livelihoods.
“Let us avoid negativity on our own development, positivity is the key, together with our President we can reach Canaan,” he said.
Cde Zivhu has introduced a number of projects in the constituency to help improve the status of people.
“Looking at the beneficial aspects of the Tokwe-Mukosi Dam, we are coming up with water harvesting plans and these plans are already in the pipeline,” said Cde Zivhu in an interview on the sidelines of the function.
“Some of our rivers that have been abandoned due to the siltation effects will be worked on to increase the water harvesting project. Chivi is an area we can turn into a greenbelt.
“The master plan of our resources is not done by foreigners, but us locals, so we are looking forward to establish a strong foundation for the Vision 2030 agenda.”
Cde Zivhu said he was working on a goat project that would see many villagers raising the animals for commercial purposes, with 3 000 goats having been distributed by 2021.
He said the constituency will soon hold a devolution conference envisaged to be attended by people from various sectors including Government officials, Zanu-PF officials, businesspeople, professionals in different fields, potential investors and diplomats.
