Kagame mobilises $800m for Zimbabwe’s rural electrification

Zimbabwean President, Emmerson Mnangagwa, has revealed that President Paul Kagame helped Zimbabwe secure US$800 million funding for its rural electrification programme.

The programme feeds into the government’s rural development agenda, which encompasses the creation of smart homes equipped with clean energy, portable water and nutrition gardens, and aimed to transform the livelihoods of the rural population in the Southern African country.

Mnangagwa said, very soon, every Zimbabwean will have electricity regardless of where they are.
