The Zimbabwe Integrated Traders Association on Wednesday gave prominent business man Mr Dilesh Nguwaya a special Business Innovation Award.
The award is in recognition of his leading role in the Pomona Waste Management Project.
The project is a brainchild of the government of Zimbabwe working through the Ministry of Local Government and Public Works in collaboration with international stakeholders.
The idea behind the project is to promote sustainable management of waste within the City of Harare and promote the adherence to the prescribed hierarchy of Waste management.
This project gained its prominence as a mitigation measure to the current waste management challenges by the City of Harare.
An inspection of the Pomona Dumpsite presented a scenario where without any interventions, Harare was going to end up being characterized by garbage dumping sites all over the city.
The event was graced by the Russian Ambassador to Zimbabwe Ambassador Nikolai Krasilnikov who commended the organisers for recognising various players whose function to the economy is to demonstrate that Zimbabwe is genuinely open for Business under the leadership of President Emmerson Dambudzo Mnangagwa.
Speaking after receiving the award Nguwaya said:
“The illustrious, game-changing emergence of the new waste management into will change the face of public service delivery in the country. The project is an outgrowth of the Government’s openness to innovations. Therefore, this award is not mine as an individual, but it is a special token present through me in respect to a broader agenda which Geo Pomona is promoting in line with the visionary cause of the Second Republic in creating an upper-middle class income economy by 2030. I also dedicate this award to the rest of my team that has seen Geo Pomona Waste Management surviving the odds to deliver a once in a lifetime service to the people of Zimbabwe. The award is a timely motivation,” he said.
The awards hosts, ZITA are a non-profit making policy advocacy entity for local business enterprises.
