    She said this during a celebration victory for Buhera West MP Saul Dzuma held at Mutasa Business Centre two weeks ago.
    “The dam brings a lot of hope for economic development to Buhera District through irrigation schemes and fishery. We need to make Buhera District a hub of horticulture through irrigation schemes. The dam will also be a source of balanced diet.
