A ZIMBABWEAN real estate company has inked a deal with a Ghanaian company which will see development of 100 000 houses in the west African country.
Housing and mortgaging firm, Enhanced Mortgaging Housing Africa, has entered into a multi-million deal with Ghana’s equally leading real estate company, HS Kodana Co. LTD and they are set to construct houses in Ojobi about 60 kilometres from Accra city centre.
It was signed between EMHA chairman Engineer Harrison Marange with the help of his legal advisor and Managing director Yussuf Suleman Khalfan Dimoso and their Ghanaian counterparts Koffi Asante Antwi and Boakye Agyei-Twum.

Speaking to H-Metro shortly after inking the deal last week, EMHA chairman Engineer Marange could not hide his elation.
“I have always wanted to make a difference in Africa and of course my home country (Zimbabwe) in as far as real estate and property development go.
“This day is a bit special because we are beginning to be rewarded as a housing and mortgaging firm.
“After setting up office in Zanzibar, Tanzania and of course home, it feels good that we are spreading our wings across Africa doing property development,” he said.
Eng Marange said construction work will begin soon.
“We are now waiting for our team of engineers from Zimbabwe to come and do their work.
“The land we got is huge and we want to make a difference here.

“As a perfectionist and professional, I want to do things by the book and change people’ lives here.
“To ensure that we achieve that, I will work closely with my partners and follow Ghana’s laws and regulations,” he added.
Besides Ghana, EMHA has structures in Zanzibar, Zambia and Tanzania where they invested in tourism and housing.
The firm is also setting sights in Kenya, Burundi, Botswana and Sierra Leone.
Back home in Zimbabwe, the firm has housing units under construction in Chitungwiza, Mabvuku, Glen Norah, Highfield, Ruwa, Headlands, Rusape, Mutare, Marondera, Guruve, Plumtree, Victoria Falls and Hwange.
Their headquarters are in Belvedere, Harare.
