MDC Alliance principal and former minister of finance Tendai Biti has promised that the MDC Alliance government will phase out thatched houses in the rural areas and replace them with smart houses. Speaking at a rally in Shamwa, Biti said,
The houses will have solar geysers, a kitchen and flushing toilet. South Africa is doing this, you saw their RDP houses. We are going to have our own RDP houses and smart houses in rural areas. In Rwanda, there are no thatched houses because their government placed its people first.
We have a technology in our bag which we did not mention when we launched our manifesto fearing that Zanu-PF might steal it. We obtained the technology in Australia such that when you place it on gravel it sticks to a plastic and turns into a tarred road.

The technology is used in Dubai. To construct one kilometre of tarred road cost $1 million (in Zimbabwe), but using this technology you only need $70 000.
