The Agricultural Rural Development Authority, ARDA says the Matebeleland Zambezi Water Project is long overdue and the government should make sure the project comes to life.
ARDA board chairperson Mr. Basil Nyabadza told the media that the project should be done under a public-private-partnership model, to ensure success.
Mr. Nyabadza says the project can give rise to a number of irrigation projects.
The Zambezi Water Project involves the completion of the Gwayi-Shangani Dam, the construction of a 245 km pipeline from the Zambezi River to the Gwayi-Shangani Dam and a pipeline from Gwayi-Shangani Dam to Bulawayo.
