ZAKA
– The construction of Four Miles Clinic is still on despite clashes between Ward 8 councillor, Tererai Tererai and Zaka Central Member of Parliament (MP) Davison Svuure.
In the previous edition, TellZim News reported on the dispute between the two, with the MP ordering the councillor not to involve former MP Paradzai Chakona in the project.
This week, project chairperson Joseph Dakwa said Svuure had now been persuaded not to interfere in a way that affects development but to, instead, promote it.
"As a new MP, he didn't know how things should be done but we managed to knock some sense into him and we are now continuing with the project. He even donated cement and promised to purchase concrete stones from Bikita Minerals," said Dakwa.
Svuure concurred with Dakwa saying the project was going on, adding that Chakona had stopped bringing building material as per his demands.
He said materials that Chakona had already delivered were still at the Tererai's home and they had not been used on the project.
"The project is going forward. We managed to mould 18 000 bricks within the past month and I am busy looking for concrete stones from Bikita Minerals. We hope the available stones and cement purchased through the Constituency Development Fund (CDF) will take us far.
"Anybody is welcome to assist. I do not reject assistance but it should come in a transparent manner. Let it be known if it is CDF or it is a gift or a donation because some of these items were supposed to come as CDF materials but the former MP failed to deliver them in time. He cannot, therefore, bring the same materials today as his own donation and seek to score unfair political points," said Svuure.
He further said his relationship with Tererai was yet to be fully mended, accusing the councillor of badmouthing him.
"My relationship with the councillor is still not alright as yet. He tells people that he will not work with me and I don't know whom does he think he will work with. Some people did not understand why I had to intervene in that manner but in a way, I was trying to protect the councillor," said Svuure.
He also denied claims that he organised meetings in the ward without involving the councillor, saying the only meeting he organised was with headman Murerekwa and could not invite the councillor as there were concerns against him.
