Mutare moves to improve service delivery


Mutare City Council has approved the purchase of new vehicles and heavy machinery, including tippers and graders, to improve the local authority’s service delivery, a city official has said.

Deputy mayor George Jerison said a full council meeting held yesterday approved the plan.

He said the new vehicles would include tippers, graders, ambulances and administrators’ official cars.

“We are waiting for the Minister of Local Government, Rural and Urban Development (Ignatius Chombo) to approve our borrowing powers so that we buy utility vehicles,” Jerison said.

“Everything that concerns this new procurement is now at an advanced stage and what is left is for us to bring the desired service delivery to our residents.

“We want to thank our residents for the cooperation they offered in terms of service delivery. People in Mutare don’t throw garbage everywhere like we see in other cities.”

Chairman of the council’s finance committee, councillor Tatenda Nhamarare, said a flexible scheme would be adopted to ensure the plans did not derail other council projects.

“We are giving loans to managers to buy cars and half of the money will be repaid to the council. This will enable us to focus on other pressing matters which need financial support as we try to maintain our reputation which earned us a national award,” said Nhamarare.

Mutare City Council scooped this year’s Zimbabwe National Chamber of Commerce’s best service delivery award.
