Zimbabwe's Government Removing Dam Silt for Irrigation

Government plans to produce over two million metric tonnes of grain through the Targeted Command Agriculture programme, which will see 2 000 farmers across the country being supported with inputs and equipment, Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa has said.

The programme is part of a raft of interventions Government is putting in place to ameliorate the effects of climate change and the resultant food shortages underpinned by irrigation infrastructure development.

Launching the National Desilting Programme in the Musengezi area of Chegutu District in Mashonaland West province yesterday, VP Mnangagwa said Government would not brook underutilisation of water bodies with potential for irrigation.
