Municipality bows to pressure

The local city council has finally bowed to pressure from residents and acquired three state-of-the-art garbage collection trucks at a cost of $500,000.

Last month the Gweru Residents and Rate Payers Association leader, Cornilias Selipiwe, formally lodged a complaint to the city fathers after it spent $2 million on vehicles for middle management officials and heads of departments at the expense of poor roads, erratic refuse collection and poor water supplies.

The council also failed to repair four garbage collection trucks donated by the Germany Agency for International Cooperation.

“We have purchased the three new trucks at a cost of $500,000 and we hope the development is very positive for the people of Gweru,” said Tapiwa Marerwa, the Assistant Town Clerk.
