Tsvangirai tackles Bulawayo problems


PRIME MINISTER Morgan Tsvangirai will tomorrow visit Bulawayo where he is expected to meet with business leaders and church groups, as his party courts locals ahead of polls.


Tsvangirai’s spokesperson Luke Tamborinyoka confirmed the Prime Minister’s visit, saying he would be coming to update business and church leaders specifically on the elections and mapping a way forward regarding the problems besetting the city.

“The Prime Minister will be coming to Bulawayo on Thursday (tomorrow) and will hold meetings with cross=sectional groups just to update them on what is happening in the country, specifically on the elections,” he said.

Tamborinyoka said the meeting with the business leaders would be the main agenda.

Tsvangirai is expected to discuss his plans for Bulawayo, at a time when the city has seen several companies close.

Last year 85 companies closed with 60 reported by the Industry and Commerce ministry to be on verge of collapse.

The government, however, has failed to come up with a lasting solution to these closures.
