GOROMONZI is undergoing a massive facelift with different government departments and parastatals already on the ground ahead of Zanu PF annual conference to be held in December in the district.
Zanu PF officials from Mashonaland East led by provincial vice-chairperson Michael Madanha on Monday visited the venue, Goromonzi High School before a tour of current rehabilitation works by the Zimbabwe Water Authority and the District Development Fund which is currently working on road infrastructure as well as drilling boreholes.
Three boreholes have so far been drilled while road markings were being done with other personnel working on grading a road which links the conference venue and Chinyika Clinic which will be a major referral medical institution during the event.
Zanu PF provincial secretary for administration Kudzai Majuru yesterday confirmed that most of the road and water infrastructure in and around the venue were being worked on.
“We are moving on well with the preparations and what I can say is that we have covered at least 50% of the work. The road markings are being done, and the Chinyika road is being worked on as we speak.
“Moreover, we have roads that lead to accommodation venues by delegates like the one that leads to St John, it is around 40% complete, while the parking space for public transport is now complete,” Majuru said.
Other service providers are soon to establish telecommunication services and electricity transformers among other facilities.
Madanha, who is the provincial technical team leader, said most of the major works will be complete by October 30.
“We are happy with what is happening on the ground and I am encouraging stakeholders to up their game. We are targeting to have completed all the major works by October 30. The progress on the ground is currently encouraging. As a party, we are moving in the right direction,” he said.
Goromonzi District was recently chosen as the host after Seke failed to provide a venue conducive for the mega event that is set to attract close to 7 000 both local and international delegates.
The revolutionary party is currently mobilising 150 beasts, 5 000 chickens, 400 goats and thousands of tonnes of maize to feed its party supporters during the week-long conference.
