President Emmerson Mnangagwa yesterday donated a bus to Zvishavane Vocational Training Centre under the Ministry of Youth, Sports, Arts and Recreation.

This donation was the President’s fulfilment of a promise he made last year when he visited the facility.
Speaking after handing over the bus –which he drove for a few metres- President Mnangagwa said he always keeps his promises.

“When I visited the place, they asked for a small minivan. I told them I would engage the private sector for this and I am happy that I have delivered on my word. We have a facility under ZUPCO, in which those who seek to import buses privately can engage the company utilise to enjoy discounts,” President Mnangagwa said.

Minister of Youth Sports Arts and Recreation, Kirsty Coventry received the bus on behalf of the institution.
Minister Coventry said the bus will go a long way in addressing the transport headaches the institution was facing.

She thanked the President for keeping his word.

President Mnangagwa said government will source appropriate buses for the people with disabilities and put some facility on the existing buses to take care of citizens living with disabilities.

This will assist them to conveniently board buses without difficulties

President Mnangagwa last visited the institution in October 2020 as a guest of honour when Ministry of Youth and Mimosa Mining Company were unveiling their joint venture in building a state-of-the-art double-storey girls hostel at Zvishavane VTC.

Zvishavane Vocational Training Centre is one of the 42 centers devoted to the training of skilled workers across Zimbabwe.
Its integration to the Heritage Based Education 5.0 Curriculum will serve the local mines and workshops with better skilled manpower and entrepreneurs as well.
