Irrigation projects are a dream come true

Editor, I attended the launch of the construction of the irrigation projects in the Eastern Province earlier in the week, and I must say it’s a dream come true. The Eastern province has, on various occasions, faced long dry spells that have negatively affected crops production.

Editor,

I attended the launch of the construction of the irrigation projects in the Eastern Province earlier in the week, and I must say it’s a dream come true.

The Eastern province has, on various occasions, faced long dry spells that have negatively affected crops production.

With the irrigation projects, there will be reliable water supply and the effects of dry spells will be something of the past. Now the farmers can not only grow enough food for consumptions, but for export as well.

This will definitely translate to better incomes, better lifestyle and sustainable food security.
