President Mnangagwa Launches Jopa-Kopa Highway

President Mnangagwa Launches Jopa-Kopa Highway

President Emmerson Mnangagwa Wednesday officially launched the Jopa-Kopa highway at Kopa growth point in Manicaland.

Minister of Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services, Monica Mutsvangwa spoke said the road is important to the horticulture farming community of Chimanimani and Chipinge.

The Jopa-Kopa highway is the major route that links Chipinge and Chimanimani districts where horticulture is the main source of livelihood.

She also emphasised the importance of other road projects being done by the government in enhancing productivity across the country.

The completion of the 23-kilometre stretch was reportedly delayed by incessant rains that also caused landslides and diverted the flow of a number of rivers.

The delays were also attributed to the resistance of the local community and motorists who at times were not patient enough not to use the road while it was still under construction.

Vice president Constantino Chiwenga, Defence and War Veterans Minister Oppah Muchinguri Kashiri, Mutsvangwa are some of the top government officials who attended the launch.

Many road networks were destroyed by Cyclone Idai which swept through the Eastern and Southern parts of the country in 2019.

The government declared all roads in the country a state of emergency saying that they need to be rehabilitated as they had become deaths traps.
