A call has been made for the newly elected councillors in Chiredzi to represent the needs and interests of the people by working towards ensuring quality service delivery to the ratepayers

Raising families in old houses that were meant to accommodate a small number of single farm workers who were working in sugar plantations does not seem to the be an easy task for residents residing in Majaradha flats in Tshovani, the oldest suburb in Chiredzi.

The situation which is a health time bomb is worsened by water shortages and sewerage bursts, however, residents remain optimistic that the newly elected councillors will work towards ensuring quality service delivery by the town council.

Newly elected ward four Councillor Liberty Macharaga said as a young person who grew up in the area, is aware of the challenges his area is facing and pledged to work towards fulfilling his promises.

Recently in an interview with the ZBC News Chiredzi Town Secretary Mr Charles Muchatukwa said ensuring access to quality social service was their main mandate and they are working on improving access to water, decent and affordable housing facilities, roads rehabilitation and ensuring expansion of the town that they achieve a municipal status by 2022.
