President Emmerson Mnangagwa has said that RTGS$ 310 million has been allocated to each province in order to ensure development is done decentrally. Speaking during a special interview to commemorate Independence Day coming this week, Mnangagwa said that each province will have the liberty to decide their development priorities and spend the money accordingly.
We have put some money, which is around RTGS$310 million, which translates to a huge sum that is given to each province to deal with priority areas which they themselves as a province, as a locality, as local communities, think are priority in their area; hence, the Government thinks globally over the entire country and says we think this is a priority in Manicaland, this is priority in Mashonaland East, this is a priority in Mat North, but the people in Mat North themselves if given a budget, they have priorities different from those structured or crafted by central Government,
The 2019 Independence celebrations have the official tagline “Zimbabwe @39: Embracing Devolution for Vision 2030”.
