The Combined Harare Residents’ Association (CHRA) has applauded the Harare City Council for improved service delivery.
Said CHRA in a statement released last week: “Generally there has been a significant improvement in the delivery of water.
“However, residents of Mandara, Greendale and parts of Mabvuku-Tafara continue to receive an erratic water supply, prompting residents to go for alternative means of sourcing the commodity with some opting for unprotected water sources which are an obvious health hazard.”
CHRA urged council to timeously inform residents to prepare for water cuts whenever they occur.
“CHRA would like applaud the City of Harare in its efforts at maintaining roads. The local authority is always filling up potholes daily and has set aside a team to look into that together with a surveillance team that is always looking for roads in need of service. However, this is a short-term solution because when the rains come they will wash away the sand used to fill the potholes.
“We acknowledge the efforts made by council in resurfacing 4th Street between Josiah Tongogara and Herbert Chitepo.
“This should act as a benchmark for all road repairs in Harare since it gives a lasting solution to the reduction of road carnage.”
