President Emmerson Mnangagwa on Wednesday handed over fishing rigs to 21 chiefs, 17 from Binga and four from Kariba.
Addressing thousands of people who had gathered for the event in Binga yesterday, Mnangagwa said he was committed to fulfilling all the promises he made during his election campaign rally at Siabuwa Business Centre in Binga North in the run-up to the 26 March by-elections. He said:
We are back again in Binga to fulfil the promise we made to you a few weeks ago.
Today’s programme empowers you to do fishing business and have money in your pockets.
As the Second Republic, our drive is that no part of the country must be left behind.
We looked at Binga and it seemed to lag behind but today we are celebrating because development has come your way, now is the time to work together and transform our country.
President Mnangagwa said he had dedicated a Presidential borehole drilling rig to stay in Binga until all chiefs have access to clean water and solar-powered systems.
