  1. Hon Chinyadza, seconded by Hon S. Moyo, moved:           That this House-

 

SHOCKED by the levels of abject poverty that perpetually assail the inhabitants of communal areas;

 

CONCERNED by the fact that 70% of the national population live in these poverty stricken areas and yet 95% of them have little or no income to meet their basic needs;

 

AWARE that past governments have perennially failed to economically empower communal dwellers preferring instead to issue food hand-outs;

 

EXTREMELY DISTURBED by policies of past governments, which

concentrated on erecting social infrastructure whilst ignoring the critical role of productive investment in the development process;

 

ALARMED that economic dualism and the vicious cycle of poverty pervading the communal areas is being exacerbated by the persistent failure of the Government to initiate policies and programmes to redress the same;

 

FURTHER AWARE that the combined effect of over-population, lack of economic opportunities, and poor incomes, have catalysed a self-reinforcing process of environmental destruction in rural areas, in general, and communal areas in particular;

 

FURTHER CONCERNED by the deliberate indifference to the plight of communal people, and the parochial, puny and paternalistic policies enunciated by the institutions of government controlling the allocation of national resources;

 

NOW, THEREFORE;

 

  1. Calls upon Government to put in measures to eliminate the abject poverty debilitating the communal areas;
  2. Expresses its support for the initiation of policies and programmes aimed at eliminating the dual economic structure existing in Zimbabwe and to concomitantly integrate the communal areas into the modern economy; and
  • Requests the Portfolio Committee on Budget, Finance and Investment Promotion to undertake an urgent in-depth study and analysis of the problem, and recommends comprehensive measures which will ensure the allocation of the requisite material and human resources needed to extricate communal Areas from their state of underdevelopment.

 

On the motion of the Minister of Small and Medium Enterprises and Cooperative Development:  Debate adjourned until tomorrow.

 

  1. On the motion of the Minister of Small and Medium Enterprises and Cooperative Development: The House adjourned at twenty six minutes past four o’clock p.m. until Tuesday, 14th July 2009 at a quarter past two o’clock in the afternoon.
