Due to an increase in frequency in drought, there is great need for Zimbabwe to shift its focus from rain to large electric power-driven irrigation schemes.
The above will potentially reduce unemployment rate as the projects would require manpower, including those that are electric powered though the number won’t be equal to that of the manual ones.
It will also be a great leap forward for Zimbabwe if she were to invest in large solar-powered farms given that its sunny most of the year in the country.
The Solar power stations will supplement the power generation capacity of this country to ensure an increased supply. Such a project would reduce the rate of deforestation, especially in rural areas.
The government needs to reduce import duty on solar equipment to make it affordable to the 43% who currently do not have the privilege of electric power in their homes.
Our inventors, with government’s help, should try automobiles (cars) that use solar, gas propelled or even electricity!
We cannot continue to buy inventions from other countries when we have an assortment of natural resources (raw materials). These projects can, to an extent, help our ailing economy which is currently on its knees.
