Zimbabwe is planning a new tourism town in Kanyemba, a remote location right at the confluence of the Zambezi and Luangwa rivers that spill into Mozambique’s Cabora Bassa.
The local Doma people, commonly known for their two-toed feet have started to see development in their area after 41 years of marginalisation.
According to government spokesperson Nick Mangwana, over 2,000 hectares have been cleared for agricultural purposes by the Ministry of Agriculture.
Although the media had carried a lot of stories on the extremely traditional or ancient manner in which the Doma had been living, very little to nothing had been done.
The Department of Immigration has set up a border point, reducing illegal crossing into or from the two neighbouring countries while the education ministry recently opened two new schools there.
The Zimbabwean Information Ministry has built signal carriers to ensure reception of local transmission while the Energy Ministry had been exploring options of importing electricity to the new town from Zambia by connecting Zimbabwean pylons to its neighbour’s grid. Separate reports indicate there are considerations the town could be made solar based.
