press release

The Deputy Minister of Local Government, Rural and Urban Development Senator Sesel Zvidzai today made a tour of Ruwa Town Council to assess development and service delivery in the town. During the tour the minister was informed that Ruwa would soon have water supplies of its own following the completion of laying water pipes from Nora Valley Dam in the town at a cost of US$3 million.

Previously the council was getting its water supplies from the Harare City Council a move which was expensive to the town and therefore the residents.

Zimbabwe Electricity Supply Authority (Zesa) is installing transmitters in the town at a cost of US$500 000 in order to pump water to the residential and business areas.Ruwa is situated some 27km east of Harare along the Harare-Mutare road.

Minister Zvidzai commended the Ruwa Town Council officials for running the affairs of the town well and working hard in ensuring better service delivery in the town at all times. The minister was told that residents were interested in improving the standards of the town hence they were paying over 80 percent of their revenue every month.

Meanwhile, Zanu PF officials in Mashonaland East province are failing to mobilise enough party members to attend Joint Monitoring and Implementation (Jomic) meetings. The meetings are on peace building.

Last month, Zanu PF was supposed to be chairing the meetings in the province but failed to organise a single meeting as its members failed to attend.

This month, the MDC is chairing the meetings and today the party organised a meeting in Mudzi North but it had to be aborted as it did not have a quorum after only three members from the Zanu PF party turned up. Each political party should have 22 representatives at each meeting.

The Jomic provincial chairperson from the MDC, Hon. Piniel Denga said it was obvious that Zanu PF was failing to mobilise its members to attend the Jomic meetings as nobody wants to be associated with the party anymore.

Hon. Denga said the acting Jomic provincial chairperson; Chiurai was always giving unreasonable excuses making it impossible for the Jomic meetings to be held regularly. The next meeting is expected to be held in Mudzi South tomorrow.

My voice is in: My vote is YES!!!
