Cabinet has considered and approved the Tourism Amendment Bill which will ensure Zimbabweans benefit from local tourism resources.


Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Minister Dr Jenfan Muswere said the Bill was presented by the Minister of Tourism and Hospitality Industry, Barbra Rwodzi, during yesterday’s Cabinet meeting.


“The Bill seeks to ensure that Zimbabweans benefit from local tourism resources in fulfilment of Section 13 of the Constitution of Zimbabwe which provides for national development, inclusive of the marginalised areas of the country,” said Dr Muswere.


“The Bill will also incorporate the principles of public administration and leadership set out in the Constitution and the Public Entities and Corporate Governance Act. The Bill will also comprehensively address the ease of doing business environment in the tourism sector in line with Vision 2030”.


Meanwhile, Cabinet has considered and adopted the second edition of the Special Report on the Implementation of Binga Development Initiatives, which was presented by the Minister of State for Presidential Affairs Lovemore Matuke.


Dr Muswere said Government has taken significant strides in implementing life-changing projects that are aimed at addressing infrastructure and socio-economic gaps in Binga District, Matabeleland North Province.


“It will be recalled that on the occasion of his visit to Binga District to address a Star Rally at Siabuwa Growth Point on 19 March 2022, His Excellency the President, Cde Dr Emmerson Dambudzo Mnangagwa, pronounced the Binga Development Initiatives,” said Dr Muswere.


“The initiatives were intended to address the huge infrastructure and socio-economic development deficiencies that were evident in the District. This is in line with the National Development Strategy 1 and the mantra of leaving no one and no place behind towards the attainment of Vision 2030.
