In a bid to ease the burden for expectant mothers, villagers in Hwendedzo under Chief Musara in Masvingo North constituency and Gutu district have partnered with their local member of the house of assembly, Cde Davis Marapira to pool resources together for the construction of a mothers waiting shelter.

So far the villagers have raised over US$300 with the legislator chipping in with 75 bags of cement towards the project.

Cde Marapira who addressed villagers from the area as he handed over the building materials said they will push to ensure that the waiting mothers shelter is built within the next three months.

Zanu PF Central Committee member, Cde Clemence Makwarimba who was at the handover ceremony commended Cde Marapira for working with the electorate and ensuring development is achieved sentiments also shared by Masvingo Province chairman, Cde Ezra Chadzamira.

To assist in the project Cde Chadzamira also donated 20 bags of cement.
