Celebrating Africa Day with Sustainable Development

Staff Reporter

Zimbabwe shout, Africa sing, we have a reason to celebrate this year’s Africa Day in style as we mark the end of the first term for the new dispensation with massive sustainable development goals achieved.

It is the objective of the African Union to push for sustainable development in Africa and Zimbabwe is one of the tops benefiting countries making visible strides in development. Peace and tranquility prevail in the beautiful southern African nation.

We recognise that we can build our country with internal resources at our disposal. President Dr E.D Mnangagwa has done in a short time what the first republic failed to achieve in a short space of time.

Challenges have bedeviled the second republic but these have been overcome.

Sanctions, cyclone Idai and the devastating Covid-19 pandemic have slowed down the development agenda.

The odds have been defied by the government and we have witnessed infrastructure development, construction of roads, Dams, Manhize Gingson Steal, Invictus Energy, and Mutare Gas plant to mention the most remarkable few.

Today Zimbabweans are celebrating Africa Day with positive development which is being emulated by other African leaders, Let’s Unite and uphold UBUNTU removing individualism which promotes negative advocacy.  

Vision 2030 attainment is on the horizon.

Government recently reported that a whooping 4,984 projects were completed by the Second Republic between 2018-2022.

Government has taken it upon itself to inform the nation on the status of both government and private sector-funded projects.

Infrastructure projects constituted 37.4% of the projects completed. 1,866 infrastructure projects were completed across the country’s provinces.

The number of projects implemented per province were as follows: Midlands, 1 083; Manicaland, 951; Mashonaland East, 861; Matabeleland South, 800; Bulawayo Metropolitan Province, 230; Harare Metropolitan Province, 267; Matabeleland North Province, 669; Masvingo Province, 677; Mashonaland West Province, 604; Mashonaland Central Province, 727.

Completed projects per province were as follows: Bulawayo Metropolitan Province, 163; Harare Metropolitan Province, 121; Manicaland Province, 777; Mashonaland Central Province, 581; Mashonaland East Province, 604; Matabeleland North, 435; Matabeleland South Province, 523; Midlands Province, 791; Masvingo Province, 537; Mashonaland West Province, 452.

The various projects have improved people’s lives across Zimbabwe’s provinces. They span all economic spheres.

They have also enhanced access to Water Sanitation and Hygiene facilities, Irrigation programmes, access to radio, television and markets for their various products and availed business opportunities to the youth, women and SMEs.

We salute the founding fathers of Africa who sacrificed their lives for the liberation of the continent. Zimbabwe fought a protracted war to attain independence.

This freedom must be safe guarded at all costs.
