"Kawazva piped water scheme is now complete and it is expected to supply water to four villages," he said.
"Kawazva Clinic, Kawazva Primary School and Kawazva Rural Service Centre will also be part of the major centres to get clean water."
Mr Sigauke said the completion of the Kawazva piped water scheme will pave way for the council to commence the reticulation exercise for residential stands.
"We are now moving on to connect at least 500 medium density residential stands with modern reticulation system and is expected to commence on July 3," said Mr Sigauke.

It has, therefore, benefited from the 14 Small Towns Wash Programme.
