Mnangagwa tells farmers embrace new technology

President Emmerson Mnangagwa has urged local farmers to embrace new technologies and to be hands-on in their farming approach for them to maximise production.

President Mnangagwa's Pricabe farm in Sherwood, Kwekwe has each and every inch covered with crops, in a clear indication that agriculture can turn around the country's fortunes if farmers maximise their pieces of land.

From soya beans to maize, the President's farm is just a marvel to inspect.

Asked on how he manages to make it in farming given his busy schedule as the country's president, Mnangagwa said his team's hands-on approach and ability to embrace technology are the major ingredients to success.

On the country's re-engagement exercise, President Mnangagwa said Zimbabwe is exploring various areas of cooperation which shall translate into economic development.

Rwandan Ambassador to Zimbabwe, Mr James Musoni who was in the company of a Zanu-PF business unit on a familiarisation tour of the President's farm, said there are a number of areas of cooperation that Kigali and Harare are working on for the benefit of the two countries.

Rwanda is one of Africa's fastest-growing economies and Zimbabwe's engagement with the East African country is seen as a step in the right direction for the country to achieve an upper middle-income economy by 2030.
