Government has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with a local company Tawana Power Corporation to kick start the $3.7 billion dollar Kondo and Chitova dam projects in the Middle Sabi.
Tawana Power will mobilise funds required for the two projects after carrying out feasibility studies.
Speaking at the signing ceremony, Environment, Water and Climate Permanent Secretary Ambassador Grace Mutandirwo said the dams will be real game changers for the region.
She said as the country looks at the issues of climate change mitigation and adaptation at a national level it has to plan with water in mind.
Tawana Power Corporation executive chairperson, Mr George Mushambi said his company is humbled by the level of confidence shown by government by way of affording the company a rare opportunity to lead in the implementation of the project.
He said the Kondo and Chitova projects were muted over 40 years ago and expectations are now very high considering the climatic conditions.
Mr Mushambi said the project will help in mitigating the effects of climate change induced droughts.
