    Bulawayo Agenda
    March 10, 2010

    The Daily Agenda, published from Monday to Friday provides information on critical governance and developmental issues. It is our hope that the information provided will be useful to our constituency of readership, particularly the leaders at the local level and civil society practitioners, in informing and shaping their choice of developmental objectives and initiatives.

    Bulawayo - Representatives of the Durban Municipality who visited the Bulawayo City Council last week advised the cities to stop relying on donors. The Head of the Informal Trade of the Durban Local Authority, Ethekwini Municipality, Thulani Nzama told the Mayor, councilors and guests that the councilors should use their limited resources and skills to cater for their needs. This comes after the Bulawayo City Council (BCC) and the Durban Municipalities, made a joint application for donations from the European Union to fund various projects in the two cities.

    The Zimbabwe Institute of Management, Spokesperson Freedom Dube has said that the Indigenisation and Empowerment Act is making Zimbabwe an unpopular investment area. He said that instead, government should empower indigenous people by assisting them to establish their own companies. Dube said that taking over businesses does not create wealth for the country.
