SHURUGWI – The Shurugwi Town Council, in partnership with the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure Development and Unki Mine, has embarked on an intensive road rehabilitation programme around the town in preparation for the rainy season.
Town Council chairperson Tsungai Makore expressed gratitude to Unki Mine for funding the project.
"I would like to thank Unki Mine for financially supporting the project. That's a noble idea of giving back to the community. I am very glad that everyone will benefit from this project," said Makore.
Most of the roads in Shurugwi were left in a poor state due to the heavy rains that ravaged most parts of the country earlier this year, destroying critical infrastructure in many areas.
"As the local authority, we are not able to do this on our own because our coffers do not allow. The transport ministry and the council are providing the equipment and men power," said Makore.
Shurugwi residents welcomed the development saying it was good that the roads will be restored to better conditions of yester years.business
