Speaking at the signing ceremony in Harare, Mnangagwa said the project would help Zimbabwe become self-sufficient in fuel manufacturing.

“I am confident that this project will contribute to our energy security and self-sufficiency in terms of liquid fuels, fertiliser and a range of other chemicals,” he said.

Mnangagwa said the investment will create employment, stimulate productivity and growth of other sectors like agriculture, manufacturing and mining.
