ZAKA – Engineer Davison Svuure last week donated 100 plastic water pipes for a tapped water project to four villages in Zaka Central Ward 18, headman Madzivire, under Chief Bota.
The pipes will cover a distance of 600 metres to draw water from a neighbouring village to a central point which is yet to be established. People from Maputsa, Marufu, Chongore and Jeriphanos villages will benefit from the water project.
Speaking at the handover ceremony, Svuure said he was humbled to work with people from his area for the improvement of working conditions.
"I am happy to fulfill the promise I made to you. Let's work together and complete the project. I will bring more material and I want you to play your part and make sure that the pipes are underground," said Svuure.
Headman Madzivire, Atanus Madzivire, thanked Svuure and encouraged people to work together and play their part in making sure that the project gets finished in time.
"If Svuure decides to leave us now, we should be able to finish the project since all the important materials are here. If only all our sons who are up there could do as Svuure is doing here, then our area would be a better place to live," said Madzivire.
The water project is chaired by Samson Chisakuwira, who said he was dedicated to make sure people work together to make the project a success.
Svuure recently donated cement to repair a bridge linking Mapanje Primary School and Ward 18b in Jerera and for the construction of a small bridge to cross a stream to Murerekwa Primary School.
He also donated fencing material to Goko School, a water pump for a gardening project in Ward 14b, roofing material to a ZCC church in Jerera and repaired a borehole at St James Primary School.local
