Story by Regis Mhako

THE Government continues to transform communities by harnessing devolution funds to avail key social amenities, with the latest being the setting up of a clinic in the farming community of Mhangura.

Gandawasvika clinic, which will serve thousands of people from three wards in Mhangura, is part of the 141 projects completed through devolution funds so far in Mashonaland West Province.

Before the commissioning of the health care facility, patients would travel up to 15 kilometres to the nearest clinic.

Makonde DNO, Sister Margaret Gavara noted, ‘‘It is government policy to reduce the walking distance to a medical facility and this is what we have done here.’’

Makonde Rural District Council was the government’s implementing partner and chairperson of the local authority Councillor, Simba Ziyambi walks us through the scope of works carried out.

Ziyambi said, ‘‘We used more than ZWL$4 million to renovate the clinic which was a derelict former farmhouse. The clinic is stocked and furnished.’’

Mashonaland West Minister of State for Provincial Affairs and Devolution Honourable Mary Mliswa said the project proves the government is walking the talk.

Hon Mliswa noted, ‘‘With this kind of development, we are achieving what is set out in the President’s vision 2030. We are glad Makonde RDC used the devolution funds wisely by channelling funds towards projects that benefit communities and not individuals.’’

Devolution funds have seen several infrastructure development projects shaping up, as the Second Republic walks the talk in transforming lives across the country.
