Cabinet considered and approved the proposed Policy Framework for Government Shareholding/Equity in Public-Private Partnerships, which was presented by the Honourable Vice President, Dr Gen (Rtd) C.G.D.N. Chiwenga.


Speaking at the Post Cabinet briefing yesterday, Minister of Information Publicity and Broadcasting Services Dr Jenfan Muswere said that the decentralisation of the hosting of the Children’s Party and Independence Day Celebrations continues to pay dividends following the successful holding of the 44th edition of the national events in Manicaland Province.


“A massive 78 000 people graced this year’s Celebrations, which were held at Murambinda Growth Point in Buhera District.

“The hosting schools, Murambinda A Primary, Murambinda B Primary and Murambinda B Secondary benefited through the state of the art soccer pitch with standardised Federation of International Football Association changing rooms, and through the construction of classroom and ablution STET,” he said.


Dr Muswere added that existing buildings at the three schools were also spruced up.


“Furthermore, 30 business units were established, and a total of 88 boreholes were drilled in Buhera District, as part of championing the Presidential Rural Development Programme, with water being reticulated on 17 piped water schemes.



“Legacy orchards were established at Murambinda A Primary and Murambinda B Secondary Schools. The orchards will serve as a demonstration plot that will contribute to the food and nutrition status of the surrounding community.”


In addition, 34 other schools across Manicaland Province were identified for the establishment of legacy plantations where a cumulative 44 000 trees will be planted on 51.7 hectares.


The National e-Learning Strategy will be accelerated starting with 10 schools and His Excellency the President has given direction of 1 000 computers to Manicaland Province.


Cabinet further advised that Interpretive Centres were constructed at the “Butcher Site” in Rusape and at Dzapasi National Monument as part of the Second Republic’s memorialisation of liberation war sites. The Second Republic will continue to upgrade the respective sites in order to ensure that the country’s history is preserved.
