Chairperson of the provisional commission running the affairs of Masvingo City Council pending the swearing in of newly-elected councillors, Godhati Dunira says his team is already busy at work trying to improve service delivery.
Speaking to TellZim News at the Provincial Heroes' Acre on Monday, Dunira said he was the best man for the job, and was working hard to improve services.
"I was chosen to lead this commission because I am a doer. We have a short time in office but I will make sure that we utilise it for the betterment of our city," said Dunira
He went on to say that his first port of call was the completion of the installation of sewer infrastructure in Victoria Ranch, as well as to improve refuse collection services.
"I will make sure that I fulfil some of the wishes which I had for Masvingo when I ran for the Masvingo Urban constituency parliamentary seat. There has to be a proper sewer system in Victoria Ranch. The issue of refuse collection and provision of water has to be improved in the city and I have made a commitment to work for that," said Dunira
He also called for all stakeholders to play their part in the improvement of service delivery, saying it was no one person's responsibility to ensure a working city.
"It's not our sole duty to ensure efficient service delivery; every resident, rather, has a role to play for a better city. I call upon all residents to pay their rates so that we can also do our job effectively," said Dunira.local
