MWENEZI – Mwenezi West MP Priscilla Moyo Zindari has pleaded with the Government to increase the number of boosters in the district as communication both through mobile phones or radio has become impossible.
Speaking at the handover of 18 motor bikes to Mwenezi Rural District councillors, Zindari said digital communication has become the way of communication in the modern age and more so in the time of the Covid19 pandemic. The world has changed its way of doing business, she said.
Digital communication was therefore no longer a luxury but an issue of development for communities and education for the children, bemoaned Zindari.
She said it was disheartening that there are areas in Mwenezi that have total signal blackout for both radio and mobile phones and people living in such areas are out of touch with the rest of the World.
She appealed to the Minister of State for Masvingo, Ezra Chadzamira who was among the guests to take up the message and act ion the issue.
“We plead for more boosters in Mwenezi. Digital communication has become a way of life; a way of doing business and a way of learning in schools. Without good network here it means the marginalized communities of Mwenezi will be further marginalized,” said Moyo.
Mwenezi District Development Coordinator (DDC) Rosemary Chingwe buttressed the MP’s sentiments and said Mwenezi District Government departments are scattered between Neshuro and Rutenga Growth Points. She said that digital communication has become the way but poor network is a serious problem.
