Zimbabwe has received a generous donation of water pumps from China to be used in smaller communities, CCTV Africa reported. The pumps, which will contribute to the country’s irrigation planning, will be given to farmers and communities which need them the most. Use of the pumps is expected to improve crop yields and productivity.
“I’m very grateful to the Chinese ambassador and the Chinese government for coming up with this donation,” The Honorable Supa Mandiwanzira, a member of parliament told CCTV Africa. “It’s going to go a long way in making sure that the community agricultural projects are very successful.”
