Mnangagwa emphasised the need for growth in agriculture, mining and tourism through the transport sector.
“The completion of the bridge will facilitate the acceleration of the growth of agriculture, mining, tourism and other sectors in Guruve, Mbire and Muzarabani districts of Mashonaland Central province,” he said.
“I, therefore, challenge the surrounding communities to play an active part in their development through economic activities that will meaningfully contribute to the provincial GDP (gross domestic product) as well as improve their income base and quality of life.”
The bridge links various districts in the province as well as other areas in the country.
Mnangagwa has snubbed several meetings in Mashonaland Central province since he took over in a military coup in November 2017.
He has only managed to attend the Bindura University of Science Education graduation ceremony in 2018.
It could not be immediately established why Mnangagwa is snubbing the province that gave him the highest presidential votes and all the parliamentary seats.
