Zimbabwe Govt, EU to Build Schools, New Health Infrastructure

The Zimbabwe government is planning to build 24 new district hospitals and has already engaged partners in the European Union for support in investment, Vice President Constantino Chiwenga has said. Speaking after a meeting with the EU Ambassador to Zimbabwe Timo Olkkonen, Chiwenga, who is also the Minister of Health and Child Care, said the government has expressed commitment to foster transparency and accountability in the use of donor funding extended towards the country's health sector to ensure continuity of programmes and the building of new hospitals. In 2019, Zimbabwe and the EU launched a formal dialogue process in which Olkkonen expressed satisfaction over the government's "seriousness" in its reform agenda but said the bloc was worried by continued State victimisation of civil society activists.
