At least 40 solar powered boreholes have been drilled in Makoni District since the Presidential Rural Development Program was launched this year. ZINWA Irrigation and Rural Development Director Engineer Waddilove Mandiziba said they received another batch of drilling machines last week and they expect to extend the drilling of boreholes to other districts in Manicaland to ensure all communities have sufficient. The Presidential Rural Development program compliments existing Government programs such as the Horticulture Recovery Plan and the Agriculture and Food Systems Transformation Strategy directed at achieving an US$8,2million agricultural sector by 2025.
