Zimbabweans in the diaspora have started to show confidence in the new dispensation with a United Kingdom based Zimbabwean woman, Ms Egnes Makoni Tafeni coming back home to team up with locals in her home village in Nyandoro, Marondera to construct a clinic.

Despite having mooted the idea to construct the clinic in 2014, Ms Makoni Tafeni said the previous administration made it difficult for her to realise her dream to construct a clinic in honour of her late mother who passed on in 1999 after suffering from high blood pressure.

“I almost gave up on this project after frustrations from the offices where I did not get a favourable response,” she said.

Marondera Rural District Council Vice Chairperson, Councilor Tondera Kwaramba said days of red tape are now a thing of the past as the country has adopted the ease of doing business concept.

“We are sorry for whatever could have happened to you concerning the project. We are now in a new dispensation and I promise it won’t be business as usual,” he said.

The clinic is set to service people from ward 11, parts of ward 12, 10 and 9.

Ms Makoni Tafeni has already supplied 15000 bricks and 200 bags of cement, among other building materials to kick-start the project.
