President Emmerson Mnangagwa says Zimbabwe will soon regain its bread basket for Southern Africa status under command agriculture which is proving to be a success and major driver of the country's economy.
Speaking during the burial of Mr Pheneas Tagwirei, father to Sakunda Holdings director Mr Kudakwashe Tagwirei at the Tagwirei homestead in Shurugwi on Wednesday , President Mnangagwa said the country waved goodbye to years of droughts after government partnered Sakunda Holdings to embark on command agriculture which is bearing fruit.
He thanked Mr Tagwirei for assisting government through funding the programme adding that its contribution to the economy has prompted government to mourn together with the Tagwirei family on their loss.
President Mnangagwa said Zimbabwe is an agrarian economy which is now utilising land, a major resource to fight drought.
He said Zimbabwe under command agriculture has mastered the art of farming and droughts will now be a thing of the past.
The President reiterated the need for unity among Zimbabweans.
He said people should shun hate speech and learn to accommodate each other.
