The head of state and government also commended progress with the Transitional Stabilisation Programme saying the economic blue print has so far yielded results. Furthermore, the President also commended the manner in which devolution funds are being used to improve livelihoods through building of infrastructure across the country.

In Agriculture the Second Republic is transforming the sector to restore the nation’s pride as the breadbasket of Africa.

“Government is modernising agriculture and continues to support farmers as seen by the drive to mechanise with equipment from Belarus and John Deere.

“Every citizen must be productive and embrace government programs of mechanisation and Pfumvudza/Gatshompo. No-one will be left behind.

“Party farms must be centres for agricultural excellence,” said President Mnangagwa.

Touching on the ongoing District Coodinating Committee (DCCs) election preparations the President said these must not be used as tools for power but for mobilisation.

He also warned some rogue elements who impose candidates saying such characters are not entertained within the Revolutionary Party.
