MDC Alliance leader, Nelson Chamisa has promised the people of Buhera that Murambinda Growth Point will be turned into a city once he is elected into office in the national elections coming in two months time.
He also promised to raise allowances for kraal heads from the current $25. Chamisa was addressing thousands of supporters gathered at Murambinda Growth Point on Saturday.
One of Chamisa’s reasons for wanting to turn the growth point into a city is that it is the hometown of the late iconic MDC T leader Morgan Tsvangirai. He said because of that Murambinda has a lot of interest both locally and internationally.
He said he would develop the Growth Point by attracting investors into the district and in particular lithium miners and their investment contracts will require them to develop the centre.
“Buhera is the most important district in the country because as a party it gave us a leader who genuinely fought for the economic liberation of Zimbabwe. We must therefore accord Murambinda the highest status and that is to develop it into a city. Development should be brought here to the people,” said Chamisa to wild cheers from Buhera residents
He also promised to have the badly damaged 122km Murambinda Birchneough-Bridge Road tarred. The road is one of the busiest and critical for Buhera District and its tarring had been on the books for many years.
He said his Government will ensure that the road is tarred within five years.
He promised to build more dams and to support Murambinda Mission Hospital which is the largest referral hospital in the district.
Charamba said Chamisa was anointed by God to lead Zimbabweans into Canaan.
