    BEATRICE – The Minister of Rural Development, Promotion and Preservation of National Culture and Heritage Abednigo Ncube showed immense satisfaction when he commissioned $0,75m worth of projects undertaken and equipment procured by Manyame Rural District Council.
    These include constructed bridges, and classroom blocks, completed reticulation projects and the procured vehicles and road maintenance equipment.
    The projects are strewn all over Beatrice and Seke District.
    Minister Ncube's tour through Manyame District on Monday was a show of real development.
    One project that however comes as a great relief to the people of the area is completed four classroom block at Muvande Primary School in Ward 15 where children from ECD to grade seven are all learning from a disused farm house that is also used for teachers' accommodation.
    Since the commissioning of the block, grade six and seven pupils will now leave the farm house to the rest of the other pupils.
    The road equipment and vehicles procured by the council cost US$500 000 and these including  three Isuzu trucks, one bull dozer, two tractors, a tipper, one grader, and a backhole loader.
    After a tour of the various projects, the touring party converged at Nyakasikana Primary school where the Minister commissioned the equipment and vehicles.
    Ncube commisioned the US$25 000 four classroom block at Muvande Primary,  US$21 000 Charlesstone Road Bridge in Ward 14, US$50 000 Rocklands medium density water reticulation system and $49 500 state of the art Kerry Road Bridge in Ward  12.
    The projects were funded by the local authority and community partners as well as ZINARA.
    Ncube described the projects as a critical and complementary investment undertaken by a focused and development-driven Rural District Council in the backdrop of serious resource constraints.
    He said the two bridges came at the right time after a lot of roads were destroyed by last season's heavy rains.
    Manyame Rural District council chairman Naison Mudzara said their projects are ZIMASSET compliant and they fall under three clusters namely Food Security and Nutrition, Social Services and Poverty Eradication as well as Infrastracture and Utilities.
    Ward 15 councillor Honey Mufakwadziya expressed gratitude at the construction of the classroom block at Muvande Primary.
