Peace club repairs road

Heal Zimbabwe Trust on the 23rd and 24th of July 2015, joined communities in Headlands district and carried out two collaborative neutral platforms (nhimbes).

The nhimbes were organised by Peace clubs formed by communities working with Heal Zimbabwe.
Members of Tasimuka Peace Club joined hands with community members in Ward 12 and repaired a road that stretches from the Hwedza – Rusape highway to Chikuse Business centre. This road saves more than 30 villages in Headlands. The road repair was attended by Headman Nemuchenje and Village Heads Kayerasora, Nyagweta and Chikuse and 52 ordinary villagers. Of the 52, 35 were females and 17 males. Headman Nemuchenje commended community members for taking part in the initiative and applauded Tasimuka Peace club for coming up with a scheme that brings people from diverse political parties together. He also hailed the involvement of youths in collaborative work as it encourages them to be peace ambassadors.
In Ward 10, Domborembizi area, members of Kubatana Kune Pundutso Peace Club brought together community members from Ward 10 to work at St Cassian Secondary School in Village 25B. St Cassian School is a new school that is being built in the area. 44 villagers assisted in the clearing of the school site and collecting stones from the bush for the builders to prepare the first stages of construction.
The school will serve more than 26 villages in Headlands Ward 10. The local traditional leader, Chief Madziwa sent a representative to witness the community work and commended Kubatana Kune Pundutso Peace Club members for volunteering to assist in the construction of the school. He also commended community members for putting their differences aside and coming together for the good of the community.
Headlands Constituency usually records high cases of human rights violations during election periods. At both the platforms, communities got an opportunity to do a conflict mapping exercise where they identified various conflict issues in the area and came up with possible solutions to the attainment of a peaceful society. The nhimbes were also used as an opportunity to raise awareness on the NPRC and other Independent Commissions.
