CHIVHU - After several weeks of inaction, The Chikomba Rural District Council (RDC) has finally plugged the giant pothole at the intersection of the main road from Harare to Masvingo and Murambinda road.
Motorists who spoke to TellZim News criticised council for taking too long to fix the pothole that had become a grave danger to motorists.
"We feel relieved that we can now drive freely as the menace is gone but we are equally disappointed that a whole council would ignore something dangerous for that long. We also doubt that the job was done properly because in the past, we have seen newly resurfaced roads being washed away in no time," said one kombi driver.
The pothole, and many others, developed during the incessant rains that pounded Chivhu and most other parts of the country in February.
Council has however been criticised for turning a blind eye to the deplorable state of roads in the town.local
