The construction of Romsley Irrigation Scheme in ward 31, Makoni District is progressing well with the installation of electricity poles having been completed to ensure smooth flow of water. Zimbabwe Farmers Union district chairperson Charles Chingono said clearing of the area by community members is already taking place to pave way for the project, with at least 1000 villagers expected to benefit from the scheme through production of cash crops for commercial use. Government allocated US$15 million for the rehabilitation of the abandoned 600 hectare Romsley Irrigation Scheme in a progressive move that seeks to improve food security, alleviate poverty and sustain development in Makoni District.
