Saka madzimambo anokwanisa kuti abatsire panyaya iyoyo kuti panzvimbo yatigere tisaita marimiro anokanganisa environment.

Ibasa ramunenge muinaro iroro muchibatsira.

Hongu kune mainfrastructure anodiwa, rural electrification inodiwa, ticharamba tichienda nayo mberi depending on the availability yemaresources asi programme yemagetsi yaticharamba tichisumudzira countrywide, yakambosimuka chaizvo chaizvo nyacho yekuisa magetsi kumaruwa asi yakabva yamboita sekumira pamusaka pemaresources kuHurumende.

Gore rapfuura iro takauya neCommand Agriculture; ndini ndaifamba nayo hatina province yatisina kuita, takaita maprovince ose, madzimambo mazhinji takasangana.

Takawana goho rakanaka gore rapera iri zvekuti chibage chinodiwa pagore tinacho, chibage chinodiwa kustrategic grain reserve tinacho uye tine chimwe chekuraudzira chasara parutivi, excess tinayo.

Zvekuti tikafunga kutengesa tinokwanisa kutengesa ichocho.

Nhamo yakaitika ndeyekuti mwaka haumire kuti zvinhu zvigadzirisike, mwaka wakaenda mberi mvura ichinaya, zvokuti dai makangamapihwa zvinhu uku politics zvinhu zvisina kugadzirisika.

Asi zvinhu zvagadzirisika iye zvino manje saka tovimba kuti zvinhu zvichadzoka pazvanga zviri kana kuti pari nani nokuti ini saPresident ndotsigira Command Agriculture ne Command Fisheries.

SeHurumende zvakare, tine programme yekututsira irrigation, kuda makanzwa vaChinamasa vachitaura nyaya ye irrigation.

Takawirirana navaChinamasa kuisa mari parutivi, yakaiswa pabudget, yekuti district rimwe ne rimwe each season or each year inofanira kuwana 2000 hectares dze irrigation.

Madistricts mangani? 60 districts.

Saka zvobvira kuti pagore tinofanira kuwana 120 000 hectares under irrigation. Tichiti each district ngaiwane at least 2 000 hectares.

Kana province ichinge yati haisisina mukana, tino shifter mahecters iwayo kuenda kune imwe province kututsira pane 2000 iwayo.

Asi at the end of the day tine programme ne mari yekuti pagore tiite 120 000 hectares dze irrigation throughout the country.

Tikaita izvozvo, after a few years patinosvika ku 300 000 hactares under irrigation or more tinenge tava guaranteed kuti mvura ikanaya kana kuti ikasanaya ne irrigation we will still be able to produce in excess of more than 2 million metric tonnes of grain.

That guarantees food security munyika medu.

Toenda kunyaya yamataura in the administration of justice, kuti imi kana mukatonga nyaya dzenyu munozodanwa futi kumberi kuti makatonga sei.

Nyaya idzodzo mozodzi raiser kuna Vice-President or President weCouncil, pamusangano wedu we Chiefs’ Council, Minister veJustice vanenge varipo, kuti chichemo chenyu chakamira sei, tingachigadzira sei chichemo ichocho chemacourts.

Asi pamunenge muchitonga nyaya idzi tinoda yavanoti muchirungu intergrity, honesty, fairness, ne justice – ndozvatinoda kwamuri madzimambo, pasava ne corruption.

Pasava nefavouritsm ne nepotism kwete.

Tionda kuti kutonga kwamunenge muchiita kuve kutonga kwakanaka.

Maita chimwe chichemo chekuti dai kwavakwa maChief’s court.

Hongu pachiNdebele it’s easier, because its father to son, father to son. Tikavaka court kwa vaMaduna, the next Maduna Chief will be there, same court, vachishandisa court iyoyo.

Asi tikavaka kwavaMusarurwa next Chief vacho vanenge vava pamwe.

Mumwe musi havachakwanisi kuuya pane iyi.

Asi mukawana maitiro sekufunga kwangu, ngapawane Chief’s court iri permanent, hazvinei nekuti Chief aenda paimba ipi, anouya kuzotongera ipapo.

Kana mukawirirana naMinister wenyu, Minister wenyu again is responsible for public works and phsyical planning; mukawirirana then we can begin doing that for you.

Tine Bill, tinoda, we are pursuing and fostering in the nation peace runyararo, love kudanana nokuwirirana, unity kubatana.

Non-violence, munyika, runyararo nekusa kwikwidzana, kurwisana; so message yatinayo ndeye unity unity peace peace love love, non-violence.

Patinoenda kusarudzo hatidi kunzwa mhere mhere vanhu batanai, mukapesana mumatongerwo enyika, mumwe akaenda kurimwe bato raanofunga kuti ndorinomubatsira hazvifanirwi kuti nokuti munhu adaro morwisana, kwete.

Indangariro dzake bato rimwe nerimwe rinenge richitaura kuti dei tikatonga tichaita zvakati asi hakuna bato rine mazano angapfuura edu takabva kuhondo tichirwira kuti nyika isununguke.

Hakuna zve rimwe bato rakarwira kuti nyika isununguke kunze kwedu.

Saka tisu tine shungu nehudzamu hwekuda nyika nekuti ma comrades edu, madzikoma, vanasisi, vana baba ana mbuya nana sekuru vakaparara vakawanda kuti tisvike patiri ipapo nemusangano wedu iyoyo we Zanu-PF.

Saka tinohwisisa kuti isu tiripo pachinguva chino pahutungamiriri pawhatever level tinofanira kushanda kushandira vanhu, kushandira kusimudzira nyika yokwedu, kusimudzira matunhu ekwedu hatifaniri kuva nehumbimbindoga hakunazve rimwe sangano muno munyika ringati rakambozvipira kufa kuti nyika isununguke kuti vanhu vasungunuke kunze kweredu.

Saka asina matambudziko atakaona murwendo rwedu imomu arimo atinenge tichiti matambudziko iwayo ngaataurwe kana paine zvichemo.

Kana zviripo zvitaurwe pave ne justice, ne national healing and reconciliation throughout, we cannot progress when communities are in conflict.

We must identify the conflicts and resolve them and move forward and develop.

That is the aspiration of the new order yedu, yemunyika muno.

So, with that aspiration, yenyika ino, handifungi kuti pane vamwe vari pakati pedu madzimambo kana munyika vane shungu nokushuvira kuti macommunities ave in conflict kwete.

Ndofunga kuti umwe noumwe akakwana mumusoro anoda kuti vanhu vabatane anoda kuti tigare murunyararo anoda kuti tidevelope nyika yedu, anoda kuti tiwirirane.

Tingawana umwe ne umwe apo nepapo ane ndangariro dzisingawirirane nedzedu asi ndinevimbo yekuti ruzhinji munyika muno vane shungu dzokuti tishande pamwe chete; tisimudze nyika yedu takabatana tichiwirirana.

Only when the country is stable and peaceful can we develop, can we focus on development, can we make sure that the younger generation, our own children, can be supported to go to schools, to go to institutions, to go to universities, to go abroad and to bring back in Zimbabwe skills and technologies which are not available in the country.

That can only be achieved in a peaceful country and where there is dialogue, where we continuously dialogue among ourselves as we are doing now.

Zvichemo zvenyu ndezvei, zvii zvamuri kuona kuti Hurumende haisi kuita mopa zvichemo izvozvo kuti isu kuHurumende takatarisira kuti muite zvakati nezvakati, Hurumende yoti izvi tinozvigona izvi hatizvigoni pamusaka pokuti.

Iyo Hurumende yokwanisa kutaura kuti tine shungu dzekuti dai semadzimambo or sema communities maita the following imi motaura zvamunenge muchiona kuti aiwa, zvamunenge muchitaura tazvinzwa.

Right across the population of our country, tinofanira kuva ne dialogue iyoyo.

Dialogue with the students, dialogue with the churches, dialogue with war veterans, dialogue with farmers, dialogue with the workers, dialogue with everybody.

No one is not important, everybody is important.

All of us in our diverse positions and callings we have challenges and those challenges can be attended to as we can dialogue and talk to each other then we can move forward.

Takaita ma sanctions edu akatidzorera shure, asi iko zvino hatichafaniri kuramba tichichema nama sanctions nezvatinazvo tikabatana tinosimuka. Nyika yedu inosimuka matoona kuti tava ne solution in the area of agriculture and the area of food security, tava nema solutions in manufacturing, we must also have a solution in the area of beneficiation and value addition, we must have solutions in the types of skills that must be taught in our institutions.

Recently I had a meeting with the Vice Chancellors and the heads of institutions and we all agreed that the teaching, the content of teaching in our institutions should talk to what we must do, what industry needs, what the farmer needs what the communities need to grow and develop.

We cannot just have institutions which are academic and just continue being academic without addressing and looking at what are the needs of society. So we agreed with the Minister responsible for Higher Education that our curriculum should now be structured so as to talk to the needs of society so across the board, that’s what we must now endeavor to achieve.

That should not be the problem, hatidi kutendekana minwe kuti izvi ndezve Hurumende izvi ndezva madzishe, zvese ndezvedu pamwe chete.

Hapana madzimai anonzi aya ndoo vekubereka ve Hurumende ava ndeve kubereka madzishe ava ndeve kubereka ma farmer.

Ayihwa same mother anobereka mambo ndiye anobereka professor ndiye anobereka muporofita, same woman. So ndezvedu tose munyika medu.

Ndoziva kuti nguva yatifambira tigofamba kuchaka chena tichienda kumisha yedu naizvozvo ndoda kutenda the Ministry of Local Government, Public Works and National Housing yakwanisa kuronga izvi.

Handiti munoona imba yedu ino iyi yakavakwa ne Midlands Development Association, vakomana vedu veprovince yeku Midlands ndoovakavakisa chiro ichi, kuri kubatana.

Kana vanga vasingabatani dei chisina kumira chinhu ichi, chakamira nekuti vakomana nevasikana vakaita sei?

Vakabatana vakaronga nama company edu ari muno imwe company yaiunza ichi imwe yaiunza ichi tikavaka chimba chedu chino ichi chataitira musangano.

Chakanaka asi regai ndikuudzei akaita kuti tivake ichi – Bvisashangu simuka. Uyo Bvisashangu ndiye akanga ari Commissar saka Zanu-PF yaiita Annual National People’s Conference, pa Conference Shamhu ndobva ati Midlands ndoda muvake hall yekuti tozoita musangano ikoko yakanaka, muvhunzei kuti kwake ku Mashonaland West avaka here?

But wakaita hako vakabva vavaka, saka wakabatsira.

Thank you very much.

May God bless our country.

May God bless Zimbabwe.

I thank you.
