Murewa Rural District Council (RDC) has embraced the Transitional Stabilisation Programme (TSP) as it seeks to attain town status and be an investment destination of choice.

Murewa RDC Chief Executive Officer, Dr Alois Gurajena said, in a stakeholders meeting at the council offices in Murewa, that the local authority has embraced the TSP and has already started implementing programmes to uplift the living conditions of its people.

“As a local authority we have embraced the TSP which we hope will go a long way in helping us improve the living standards of our people,” said Dr Gurajena.

Murewa District Administrator, Ms Gumburayi Wadzvanya said the government supports initiatives by the local authority to contribute to the country’s economic turnaround programme.

“As the government, we are happy that M urewa RDC has adopted the TSP which will help in turning around the country’s economy,” she said.

As part of encouraging self-sufficiency in the area, ward 6 Councillor, Andrew Chirimumimba presented tools including hoes and shovels to various stakeholders including traditional leaders and fellow councillors for use in their areas.

The TSP outlines policies, strategies and projects that guide Zimbabwe’s social and economic development interventions up to December 2020, laying a robust base for economic growth for the period 2021-2030.
