ED: Local Authorities Must Align With The National Govt Vision

President Emmerson Mnangagwa has called upon all local authorities to align their visions with that of the national government. He noted that the vision of the central government would not succeed if there was no support from all tiers of government.

Officially opening the third edition of the Rural District Councils Chairpersons’ indaba in Victoria Falls, Mnangagwa reiterated the necessity of having coordinated efforts from grassroots levels. The president said:

We at the national level have interrogated this vision but it cannot succeed without the other tiers of Government, which primarily include yourselves (RDCs). We must all recognise that every one of us at every level is critical for the success of our vision.

This platform is thus important as it provides us with the opportunity to interrogate and reflect on issues related to equitable and inclusive growth, harnessing the resource endowments within our respective communities.

He added that local authorities were strategically positioned to identify and to swiftly address the needs of the locals. Mnangagwa added:

As leaders who preside over these communities you should be at the forefront of crafting innovative strategies which stimulate production, value addition and beneficiation of resources in the areas under your jurisdiction.

We need you to focus on the resources available in your districts. As RDCs when we speak of devolution we have you in mind. My Government will continue to support local authorities through policy guidance, financial and non-financial support, capacity building and technical back-up to improve efficiencies within your sector.
