In a statement Hwengwere said “Buy Zimbabwe writes to advise that following extensive discussions with our coordinating Ministry of Mines and Mining Development, it has been agreed to postpone the scheduled launch of the Great Dyke Awards and Book launch on the 14th of July 2023 in Gweru to a post-election period.

“Buy Zimbabwe and the Ministry of Mines and Mining Development have also committed to ensuring that the intervening period is used to conduct more research on the investment opportunities within the Great Dyke and provide an in depth profile of businesses and institutions in the Great Dyke book.

“While we regret that these developments have resulted in the postponement of our much awaited book launch and awards, we also see increased opportunities for our partners.

“Our initial focus was to provide a scan of the Great Dyke as provided by the research conducted by the AEDS team.  However, the new developments have necessitated that we include in the book profiles of businesses, institutions and personalities who have contributed to a better Great Dyke. 

“Our goal is for the book to be a major reference text in schools, universities, and organisations both locally and internationally. 

“We are gratified by Government and President E.D Mnangagwa’s confidence in our work. We take note of the commitment to support our initiative of promoting growth and investments within the 550 kilometre long Great Dyke region.

“Our research teams will be shortly going into the field and communicating with business partners who wish to be profiled in the Great Dyke. We are confident that as soon as the election period is over we will be in a position to launch our book and recognize champions of the Great Dyke”, said the veteran broadcaster and seasoned business executive.
