The era of unfinished projects hanging in limbo forever is gone and the Second Republic will ensure that transformative works that are currently underway will be completed timeously, President Mnangagwa has said.

Officially commissioning the new one-stop Chinhoyi Court complex, which houses both the lower and upper courts, as well as other vital justice delivery cogs in Chinhoyi yesterday, the President said there was no room for complacency under the New Dispensation as every person must justify his/her employment.

“The fact that we are gathered to witness the successful completion of this project signifies my administration’s resolve and commitment to deliver on its development oriented policies and programmes. The era of starting projects that never get completed is long gone,” he said.

Like many other projects, the Chinhoyi Court has been lying derelict for decades with works only recommencing in 2018 following the birth of the Second Republic.

“The culture of action, success and excellence is the bedrock of the Second Republic’s value system and ethos. All projects underway will therefore be timely completed so that our people can enjoy the modern and quality services and goods.

“State institutions must now seek new achievements and victories as opposed to perpetually basking in accomplishment of yesteryear. We are a Government and a people on a journey to create and build the Zimbabwe we all want. Hence, each institution must play its part for the country to maintain its trajectory and multi-faceted targets set out under NDS1.

“Everyone must justify his or her employment in the particular capacity that he or she occupies. Our actions and results must speak louder than our words in order to make Vision 2030 a reality to all citizens,” the President said.

The era of unfinished projects hanging in limbo forever is gone and the Second Republic will ensure that transformative works that are currently underway will be completed timeously, President Mnangagwa has said.

Traditional ceremony for Lupane gas project
Minister Richard Moyo
Leonard Ncube, Victoria Falls Reporter
TRADITIONAL music, ululation and dance characterised a ground breaking ceremony held in Mashokotsha area, Lupane to mark the start of a big methane gas project in Matabeleland North.

The Lupane methane gas project in Kusile Rural District’s Siwale Ward 1, has remained in the pipeline for years with no serious investor committing to the project.

With capacity to start with generation of 5MW in the first two years and expanding to 15MW later, the project has potential to catapult the Matabeleland North provincial capital to growth as well as spur development in the whole province.

Zimbabwe has an estimated 40 trillion cubic feet of potentially recoverable gas in the Lupane-Lubimbi area and could be probably the largest deposits in Southern Africa.

A number of companies have been given grants by Government before.

Some of them are Tumagole of South Africa, Sakunda Holdings and Shangani Energy Exploration which is owned by Chinese steel giant Sinosteel.

The long-awaited project could be finally taking off after an investor, Lubimbi Power and Gas moved on site to meet local leadership, culminating into the traditional ceremony.

The company, believed to be in partnership with Discovery which is a holder of a special grant in the area, is reportedly almost done with the process of Environmental Impact Assessment which is said to be over 90 percent complete.

Chief Mabhikwa of Lupane said the traditional ceremony held earlier in the week was in line with traditional customs of consulting ancestors and seeking guidance from them ahead of start of the project.

Public consultations are yet to be done.

“This was just a traditional groundbreaking ceremony in line with our cultural.

August 23 was a particularly long day for Finance and Economic Development Minister Professor Mthuli Ncube and Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe (RBZ) Governor Dr John Mangudya.

The two men spent the better part of the day anxiously glued to their screens.

At around 9pm, their minds were put at ease, as notification that Zimbabwe had duly received its share of the Special Drawing Rights (SDRs) from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) came through.

“I had to stay awake to make sure that I know that it has hit the account. So, me and Governor Mangundya, we were staying awake to see the time the SDR would hit the account,” said Minister Mthuli Ncube during an interview with the Zimpapers Television Network (ZTN) on Thursday.

The Treasury chief knew what this allocation means for the economy – a stronger chance for redemption.

SDRs are an international reserve currency run by the IMF and are usually deployed in instances where there are shocks to the global economy.

In 2009, more than US$283 billion worth of SDRs were released to counteract the impact of the global financial crisis, with Zimbabwe getting US$400 million.

This time, the IMF has released US$650 billion — the biggest allocation in its history — to help countries recover from Covid-19-induced shocks.

And Zimbabwe has since received its US$961 million share.

“The SDRs will be managed transparently, prudently and they will be deployed carefully,” Professor Ncube said.

Spending will be captured in the 100-day cycle reports that are released by Government quarterly.

“We have a history of prudent management as the Second Republic. I have a history of prudent management of public finances as Minister of Finance and Economic Development. I have run a balanced budget; the record speaks for itself.

PRESIDENT Mnangagwa yesterday warned youths who have been invading farms around the country that they risk the full wrath of the law as the era of such actions is long gone.

Addressing scores of people who gathered at Zimplats Mine in Mhondoro-Ngezi yesterday, the President, who is also the Commander in Chief of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces, said any youth who will continue on the lawless path of invading farms will face the music.

“I hear that they are some members of the youth who are invading farms, please desist or you will regret it, we don’t want chaos in the Second Republic. I have heard your pleas for land, the Minister (of Lands) came to me and I told him to set aside 500 hectares in each province for the benefit of young people and we are looking for the land to give to the youths, we will assist them with inputs such as tractors and pivots.

“We don’t want lawlessness, time of invasions is long past. Tomorrow, I will meet young people who I will give 500 cattle in each province, we will always support the youth as long as they behave within the law,” he said.

The President said the historic land reform programme that redressed colonial land imbalances at the turn of the millennium is in the past and now the nation is focused on production in a peaceful country.

“We hear that young people are interested in agriculture and we will support them in an orderly manner, not the chaotic manner we hear,” the President said.

Private players should complement Government’s efforts towards achieving Vision 2030 by creating synergies with local communities and ensuring that no one is left behind in the process, President Mnangagwa has said.

This comes after Zimplats – a subsidiary of Australian listed Implats – established a multi-million dollar joint venture with Palmline Holdings in Mhondoro-Ngezi that is set to transform local communities in line with President Mnangagwa’s Zimbabwe is open for business mantra.

The project that the President commissioned yesterday demonstrates that despite illegal sanctions imposed by the United States and its allies, Zimbabwe is in partnership with progressive companies and countries in Africa and Eurasia within the framework of the National Development Strategy 1 economic blueprint which calls for a private sector-led development.

In spite of the sanctions, the country’s economy continues to defy odds with a projected growth of 7,8 percent, while institutions are being strengthened.

Speaking at the launch of the US$15 million cattle ranching project in Mhondoro-Ngezi, the President said the venture is a demonstration that the two mainstays of the country, mining and agriculture can co-exist.

“Today’s launch of the cattle ranching joint venture project gives impetus to the fulfilment of the Agriculture and Food Systems Transformation Strategy, which targets attainment of a US$8,2 billion agriculture economy by 2025.

“The fruition of the joint venture is a confirmation that sustainable and inclusive development of our great country is not only the responsibility of Government. It is a shared responsibility of the private sector, development partners and all citizens alike,” he said.

Private players should complement Government’s efforts towards achieving Vision 2030 by creating synergies with local communities and ensuring that no one is left behind in the process, President Mnangagwa has said.

Fans confident of Warriors squad
Ovidy Karuru
Ricky Zililo, Senior Sports Reporter
FOOTBALL fans believe the Warriors squad for the World Cup qualifiers against South Africa and Ethiopia next month is capable of collecting at least four points from the two matches.

Zimbabwe take on South Africa in their first group game at the National Sports Stadium on Friday next week before jetting to Ethiopia for the second game on September 7.

The bulk of players named for the two ties are active at their respective clubs, although some fans questioned the inclusion of clubless midfielder Ovidy Karuru and defender Jimmy Dzingai as well as Jonah Fabisch, who plays in the lower tier in Germany.

Jimmy Dzingai

One fan Thulani Moyo said: “My worry is on unattached players such as Ovidy, Dzingai. How on earth do we still call-up players who are inactive and leave out striker Prince Dube who has recovered and is in pre-season with his team? Young Fabisch plays in the lower divisions and why include him now when he wasn’t involved in previous matches? Except for those three, l guess it’s an average team that can give us results.”

Mandla Maphosa-Nkala feels the Warriors can spring a surprise against Bafana Bafana.

“This is a very strong team if only the British Brigade can travel for the games. To be honest, for the first time in a very long time we are seeing a good selection, a team strong on paper compared to Bafana Bafana. The Warriors will be victorious in both encounters,” Maphosa-Nkala said.

Praise Dumik Gumpo said: “I think it’s the best set of players we have available. They should be able to get at least four points from the upcoming two fixtures. My prayer is that the guys playing in the UK all report for camp, especially McCauley Bonne.”

Carlmarx Nkomo said his worry is that should the British Brigade be barred from travelling for the South Africa

SA Airways to resume Zim, regional flights
Leonard Ncube, Victoria Falls Reporter
SOUTH African Airways (SAA) has announced plans to resume flights into the region, including Zimbabwe, next month.

According to the carrier, the first flights will commence on Thursday 23 of September 2021.
SAA had suspended flights in response to the adverse effects of Covid-19, which led to international travel restrictions. Several other airlines had also halted operations including to Zimbabwe.

In a latest statement, SAA interim chief executive, Mr Thomas Kgokolo said tickets were expected to go on sale starting Thursday, 26 August 2021 with the first flights taking off a month later.

“The wait is finally over. In just under a month, the striking and familiar livery of SAA will once again be visible in the skies as the airline resumes operations,” he said.

“After months of diligent work, we are delighted that SAA is resuming service and we look forward to welcoming on board our loyal passengers and flying the South African flag. We continue to be a safe carrier and adhering to Covid-19 protocols.”

Mr Kgokolo said as an initial phase, the airline will operate flights from Johannesburg to Cape Town, Accra, Kinshasa, Harare, Lusaka and Maputo. More destinations will be added to the route network in response to market conditions.

“There is a profound feeling of enthusiasm within team SAA as we prepare for takeoff with one common purpose — to rebuild and sustain a profitable airline that once again takes a leadership role among local, continental and international airlines,” added Mr Kgokolo.

He said the airline was aware of challenges currently bedevilling the aviation sector and what lies ahead of the airline’s operations in the coming weeks ensuing resumption of flights.

Oliver Kazunga, Senior Business Reporter
MORE than 790 000 tonnes of maize have been delivered to the Grain Marketing Board (GMB) so far with more deliveries expected.

Since the beginning of the marketing season on April 1, over 1 400 collection points have been established across the country. The Government targets to set up 1 800 collection points this season.

Speaking during a post-Cabinet media briefing Wednesday, Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Minister Monica Mutsvangwa said: “It is highlighted that 792 325 tonnes of maize, 11 769 tonnes of soya bean and 81 755 tonnes of traditional grains had been delivered to the GMB as at 24 August 2021”.

She said Mashonaland West had the highest maize and soya bean intake, while Mashonaland Central was highest in relation to traditional grains.

According to the Second Round of Crop and Livestock Assessment Report for 2020-2021 season, maize production is estimated at 2,7 million tonnes, which is 199 percent of the 907 628 tonnes produced in the 2019-2020 season.

Traditional grains production for the 2020/2021 season is estimated at 347 968 tonnes, which is 128 percent more compared to 152 515 tonnes in 2019-2020.

Sorghum production is expected to be 244 063 tonnes, which is 135 percent more than 103 684 tonnes obtained during 2019-2020 season. Finger millet production is expected to be at 13 223 tonnes, which is 35 percent more than 9 799 tonnes produced in the 2018-2019.

All the 87 GMB depots in the country have begun operating daily, including on weekends, to facilitate uninterrupted grain deliveries.

The grain utility is paying $32 000 per tonne of maize, $48 000 for a tonne of soya bean and $38 000 for traditional grains.

The Government has set aside $60 billion to ensure timely payment of farmers.

T E R R I F Y I N G!!!!! THE ENTIRE BURKINA FASO GOVERNMENT RESIGNS Bill Gates Dirty Tricks in Burkina Faso and Nigeria, by Sussy Vozniak, reporter for Intelicor Press, Vienna. Paris: Secret documents leaked on the fiasco in Burkina Faso expose troubling information on the undercover activities of the American Multi-Billionaire Bill Gates in the small African nation and across the region. Intelicor veterans in Paris express unease as the Burkinabe government led by Prime Minister Paul Kaba Thieba resigned https://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-46930537 A leading Intelicor veteran thinks that the reason why President Roch Marc Christian Kabore demanded the resignation of the Prime Minister is related to the matter of the proposed release of genetically modified (GMO) mosquitoes in Burkina Faso under the sponsorship of Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The story began in January 2018, when Bill Gates pledged USD $45 million to the health initiative in Burkina Faso. Some felt that the funds were a decoy to cover bribery to top government officials for allowing the program to release the GMO mosquitoes in Burkina Faso. The GMO mosquitoes were programmed at Imperial College London under a grant from Bill Gates to sterilize natural mosquitoes and humans across the African continent over time https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/researchers-to-release-genetically-engineered-mosquitoes-in-africa-for-first-time/ The terrifying news of the secret project for Human Sterilization of Africans with GMO mosquitoes alarmed African leaders, who quickly came down hard on President Kabore forcing him to act. Similar teams are working in Mali and Uganda. The homing endonuclease gene (HEG) that sterilizes the female mosquitoes also could be passed through saliva to humans during bites and the human in turn could pass it on through sexual in*******se to another human, in a cascade that could have the entire Black Continent exterminated before anything could be done

Most Cabinet ministers also attended the launch of the National Day of Prayer, which is the brainchild of First Lady Auxillia Mnangagwa. Over 300 denominations were represented at the launch that was attended by over 1 000 people. “We have gathered here at State House not to celebrate the First Family, but to pray to God about the challenges we are facing because He is the only one who can solve them. When I was inaugurated as President last year, I preached for there to be peace, love, unity and harmony in the country and that is what I still preach today when I get the chance,” said President Mnangagwa. “We want peace, love, harmony and a united country. We should not discriminate against each other. I also know that these are the virtues that are also promoted by the Church.” The President said Government would adhere to the dictates of the Constitution that guarantees freedom of religion. He said churches have their right to worship freely and Government respects that provision because if a nation follows Jesus Christ’s teachings, there will be no killing of each other and damaging other people’s property. President Mnangagwa said God was the one who appointed leaders, and the leaders should know that the people they lead belong to God. “However, God does not come to directly appoint individuals as leaders but appoints them through the people. “We have different races across the world and each one of them was given their own country and resources. However, we have other nations that are not satisfied with what God gave them and want to find benefit from other nations’ resources. “This is how conflicts happen between nations; that is why we always pray that each nation benefits from its resources,” said President Mnangagwa. Turning to the issue of political dialogue, the President reiterated his position that he was open to talking to anyone through the Political Actors Dialogue Forum (POLAD). “We have our dialogue as political parties at this place and my arms are stretched to say every political party should come and we build our nation. We are all Zimbabweans, we might get assistance from other nations but we all remain Zimbabweans. “So as churches, pray for there to be peace and harmony in the country,” he said. President Mnangagwa saluted the churches for organising the National Day of Prayer. “I have been at this place since 1980 and I want to tell you that such a thing has not happened before,” he said. He added that the church was free to organise regular prayer meetings at State House whenever they needed. Meanwhile, President Mnangagwa introduced the Cabinet members to the congregants that attended yesterday’s prayer meeting. There were also banners on display at the event promoting the Government’s devolution policy. The banners highlighted the various natural resources found in each of the country’s 10 provinces that could be exploited for the benefit of the respective communities.
TEAM-ZANU-PF NEWS BULLETIN Friday public holiday 22 OCT, 2019 - 00:10 0 COMMENTS Friday public holiday Minister Murwira Zvamaida Murwira Senior Reporter Government has declared Friday, October 25, a public holiday to allow people to attend the Sadc-initiated regional day of solidarity against sanctions on Zimbabwe, whose main event is slated for the National Sports Stadium in Harare. This follows a decision by the Sadc summit held in Tanzania in August this year to set the day aside for solidarity marches across the region to denounce illegal sanctions imposed by the United States (US) and the European Union (EU). The public holiday was announced last night by Acting Minister of Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Professor Amon Murwira while addressing journalists on the 37th Cabinet decision matrix yesterday. “Cabinet received an update on the Friday October 25, 2019 SADC Anti-Sanctions Day from Honourable Vice President Kembo Mohadi. The marchers are expected to assemble at Robert Mugabe Square by 6am, from where they will proceed to the National Sports Stadium at 8am. Highlights of events scheduled to take place at the National Sports Stadium will include entertainment; solidarity messages by various national and international presenters; presentation of research findings on the background and impact of the illegal sanctions; a soccer match between Dynamos and Highlanders football clubs; and the anti-sanctions gala to run from 6pm on the same day till the following morning,” said Minister Murwira, who is also Higher and Tertiary Education, Science and Technology Development Minister. “Similar activities are expected to take place in various provincial and district centres throughout the country. To further amplify the importance of this day to the economic emancipation and well-being of Zimbabwe, Friday October 25, 2019 shall be declared an official public holiday. “The general public will be advised of more details of logistical arrangements in the build-up to the occasion. We, therefore, wish to appeal to all Zimbabweans across the board to come in their numbers and to actively participate towards the success of this grand and noble initiative.”
TEAM-ZANU-PF NEWS BULLETIN Cabinet receives 2020 Budget Strategy Paper 22 OCT, 2019 - 00:10 0 COMMENTS Cabinet receives 2020 Budget Strategy Paper Prof Ncube Africa Moyo Deputy News Editor Cabinet yesterday received the 2020 proposed Budget Strategy Paper that was presented by Finance and Economic Development Minister Professor Mthuli Ncube. This was said by Higher and Tertiary Education, Science and Technology Development Minister Professor Amon Murwira while briefing journalists in Harare after yesterday’s Cabinet meeting. He was representing Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Minister Monica Mutsvangwa. “Cabinet received the 2020 proposed Budget Strategy Paper as presented by the Minister of Finance and Economic Development,” he said. “The Minister (Prof Ncube)’s presentation took note of the ongoing reforms which are premised on the 2019 national Budget theme — Austerity for Prosperity as outlined in the Transitional Stabilisation Programme (TSP). “Notable milestones in this regard include fiscal consolidation, monetary policy restoration, liberalisation of the foreign exchange market, re-engagement and a number of governance and structural reforms aimed at improving the business environment and to support the productive sectors.” Prof Murwira said the reforms present a “firm pedestal” for the rebound of the country’s economy from next year and beyond. The 2020 Budget Strategy Paper is premised on the understanding that the austerity phase of the reforms will be over by the end of the year, thereby ushering in the era of economic growth and productivity. Prof Murwira said the Strategy Paper took note of the fact that this year, the economy faced “severe exogenous shocks” arising from the El Nino-induced drought and Cyclone Idai, which constrained agricultural activities and electricity generation, bringing about general under-performance of the economy. Government projects the economy to grow by 4,6 percent next year. Further, price increases which currently present a major challenge are expected to stabilise on the back of continued implementation of fiscal and monetary reforms, supported by structural and supply side measures. Prof Murwira said the 2020 National Budget will seek to consolidate the macro-fiscal stabilisation gains secured in 2019. “However, the strategic focus of the Budget thrust will now be anchored on the following objectives: growth and productivity; job creation; competitiveness; and promotion of more sustained and shared development. “Also of importance is the need for a more comprehensive and well-coordinated approach to the implementation of the country’s debt arrears clearance programme,” said Prof Murwira. He added that going forward, Government’s borrowing programme shall be coordinated in order to align the country’s re-engagement to the international financial institutions’ lending policies. “In this regard, completion of the Staff Monitored Programme will be accorded top priority,” said Prof Murwira.
