THE people of Victoria Falls are grateful to the government for implementing the devolution programme, which has seen the resort city benefitting from various infrastructure development projects.
The City of Victoria Falls was allocated ZWL$168 million in the 2023 national budget and has so far received ZWL$47,5 million, which has been invested into purchasing water pumps and construction of a hall at Mosi-oa-Tunya High School.
For Mosi-oa-Tunya High School, the hall is another opportunity for the school to generate income.
“Since this is a tourism area, the hall can be hired out to those who want to do conferences. The hall will also be handy in that our school hosts various school programs such as sports. It can also play host to community meetings,” said Mosi-oa-Tunya High School Headmaster, Mr Roland Sibanda.
The City of Victoria Falls gave an update on project implementation after receiving the devolution funds.
Under National Development Strategy One, the government views infrastructure development as a key pillar towards the attainment of an upper-middle-income society by 2030.
