Yesterday, President Mnangagwa received 1000 medical oxygen cylinders from Verify Engineering.

Verify Engineering is the company running the recently commissioned Oxygen and Gas plant in Mutare.

The delivery, which marks the official start of distribution of both medical and industrial gases, is the company`s contribution to the ongoing fight against Covid-19.

President Mnangagwa commissioned Verify Engineering’s medical oxygen and nitrogen plant in Mutare in August 2021, where he said the plant was critical in the fight against Covid-19.

Oxygen is a major component used to assist those who would have developed breathing difficulties.

“The setting up of the Verify Engineering plant in Mutare as a milestone achievement for the Second Republic and is testimony of Education 5.0 at work. I am excited to receive these first fruits.

I am also informed Verified Engineering has also taken a huge step towards establishment of depots for distribution of gases across the country. This is important for our economy whose trajectory has shifted from recovery to growth,” said President Mnangagwa.

Verify Engineering is a wholly State-owned company operated under The Ministry of Higher and Tertiary Education, Science and Technology Development.

It is mandated to participate in the industrialization process of Zimbabwe through heritage based Science and Technology Development.

“This donation is being received at a time nation is faced with surge in Covid19 infections. We are however confident that containment measures by my Government and production of oxygen will enable us to save more lives,” said President Mnangagwa.

President Mnangagwa gave the cylinders to the Ministry of Health and Child Care.

The consignment was received by the Deputy Minister of Health and Child Care Mangwiro who thanked the President and Verify Engineering for the oxygen cylinders and said the cylinders will be distributed countrywide based on need.
