Extract of promises President Mnangagwa made to the people of Matebeleland while addressing his rally at Somuhlolo Stadium in Lupane.
“We are also dualising the road from Kazungula to Victoria Falls. I hear that some parts of Binga don’t have TV and radio signals but that will be attended to as I have given Charamba a task to fix that by the end of the year or else he loses his job.”
He said the dualisation of the Beitbridge – Bulawayo – Victoria Falls Road will benefit youths from Matebeleland South, North and Bulawayo.
“We are rebuilding the Kwekwe-Nkayi-Lupane Road so that when you are going to Harare you don’t have to pass through Bulawayo.”
President Mnangagwa said Matebeleland North is rich in minerals adding that the province also has the largest deposits of coalbed methane in Southern Africa.
“On Wednesday we were officiating at the groundbreaking for the expansion of the Beitbridge Border Post that will also create jobs.”
“The Gwayi-Shangani project that has been outstanding for years, we are resuming it. In Hwange, we commissioned the Hwange Thermal Power Station expansion project that will create 3 000 jobs.”
“We were in Matebeleland South and gave 1 660 head of cattle to people there. Today we distributed more than a thousand cattle for the people in Matebeleland North.”
