Ed calls for implementation of developmental projects

By Vimbai Kamoyo

President Emmerson Mnangagwa has on his first cabinet meeting this week called on the ministers to implement government projects to realise development in the country.

He said the government’s policy of all-inclusivity was the guiding light in the progress of what the government was doing.

“In line with our commitment to leave no one and no place behind, I am directing you all to focus on implementing transformative programmes that promote industrialization, modernization as well as rural development throughout the country. Prudent fiscal and monetary policies and the promotion of a conducive business environment remain critically important for the stability and growth of our economy.

“Accordingly, the fiscal and monetary authorities are implementing a raft of policy measures to arrest price increases, stabilise the foreign exchange rate, maintain the value of our currency, and ultimately encourage savings,” he said.

The President said the provision of water and sanitation were of paramount importance. In Zimbabwe, the first case of cholera was reported in February 2023, with over 20,000 people and 370 deaths registered as of 23 January 2024.

“The provision of clean water, sanitation facilities, and waste management services are a priority. I expect real-time updates in that regard,” he said.

Meanwhile, he castigated some ministers for neglecting cabinet business, preferring to do other work.

“In the last session, I noticed an unbecoming trend where some members prioritise ministerial activities and neglect Cabinet business. This must stop forthwith. Cabinet business takes precedence over all other matters and attendance at Cabinet meetings is compulsory.

“The provision of clean water, sanitation facilities, and waste management services are a priority. I expect real-time updates in that regard,” he said.
