THE second meeting of Cabinet ministers and Zanu-PF Provincial Coordinating Committees (PCC) to discuss Zim-Asset and its expected benefits for Matabeleland provinces will be held in Bulawayo on Sunday, the Senior Minister of State in the President’s Office, Cde Simon Khaya Moyo, said yesterday.
Five ministers — Cdes Patrick Chinamasa (Finance), Walter Chidhakwa (Mines and Mining Development), Dzikamai Mavhaire (Energy), Francis Nhema (Youth and Indigenisation) and Joseph Made ( Agriculture, Mechanisation and Irrigation Development) would be in attendance and Cde Khaya Moyo said all PCC members from the region should attend without fail.
The meeting is expected to start at 10AM.
“The second meeting of cabinet ministers with Provincial Coordinating Committees of the ruling Zanu-PF provinces of Matabeleland South, Bulawayo Metropolitan and Matabeleland North will be held on Sunday, September 7 at Elangeni Training Centre, Bulawayo,” said Cde Khaya Moyo.
“The ministers will present papers on implementation of Zim-Asset from a regional perspective. Only members of the three PCCs will be allowed to attend this meeting. It is therefore imperative that all members of these PCCs attend without fail.”
In June, the first meeting was held at the same venue.
Before that initial meeting, Zanu-PF Matabeleland South provincial chairman Cde Andrew Langa described it as a “crucial meeting.”
“We’re going to put our heads together and look at how best we can improve the economy of the region. The reason why we are meeting as a region is because problems affecting Bulawayo also affect other regions. As Mat South, we want to hear issues about mining and livestock production,” he said.
