Seven clinics are expected to be completed soon in Mutare West constituency bringing relief to the rural communities who were walking long distances to access health provision.

The seven health facilities that are at various stages of construction are being bankrolled by Mutare West legislator who is also Minister of Information, Media and Broadcasting Services Dr Chris Mushohwe.

A ground breaking ceremony of Muperere Clinic in Fungirai village ward 29 was held with villagers expressing gratitude to the legislator for facilitating the construction of the clinics.

Dr Mushohwe said after constructing 15 advanced level schools in the constituency focus is now on health institutions.

He commended the spirit of unity and togetherness saying the community expects more development to be rolled out under the Marange-Zimunya community share ownership trust.

The community has already mobilised locally available construction material with youths expressing their readiness to contribute labour.

Dr Mushohwe donated 20 bags of cement to kick start the construction of Muperere Clinic.
