BUHERA – A Grade 5 pupil from Chapanduka Primary School in Buhera has won herself a scholarship from President Emmerson Mnangagwa after reciting a moving poem on the opening of Marovanyati Dam on Wednesday.

Mnangagwa pledged a scholarship that will take the girl right through university.

After the presentation Munzveda got a round of applause from the strong crowd.

Marovanyati has storage capacity of 50 million cubic metres and is on Mwerihari River, a perennial river with an annual flow of 182 million cubic metres.

The dam will be used to irrigate 1 250 hectares and create employment and tourism opportunities.

The girl performed at similar big events in the past including one where the late Perrence Shiri was a guest of honour, the opening of Buhera district Cottco depot and the opening of a honey processing factory at Chapanduka. https://masvingomirror.com
