We are back on track

The Sunday Mail (Zimbabwe) - - COMMENT -

LAST week, you pub­lished an ar­ti­cle high­light­ing that Gov­ern­ment was go­ing to re­ha­bil­i­tate, con­struct and up­grade at least 2 000km of road in the next two months.

If events on the ground are any­thing to go by, then I am pos­i­tive this shall come to pass. In the Harare CBD and Av­enues area, most of the roads have been re­ha­bil­i­tated and there is vis­i­ble ac­tiv­ity on some high­ways.

There was a time when such ini­tia­tives were just all talk and no ac­tion, but this time around we can see the work be­ing done. If Gov­ern­ment keeps this up, we are go­ing to see our roads get­ting their glim­mer back.

Next up should be re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion of pub­lic parks, pub­lic swim­ming pools and com­mu­nity cen­ters. The county has a lot of po­ten­tial to im­prove its out­look as long as Gov­ern­ment keeps this mo­men­tum. In the next few years, we will cer­tainly be the jewel of Africa.

Thu­lani Dube.
