TellZim Reporter
Gutu is one of the largest districts in Masvingo province, lying some 225 kilometres south of Harare, along the Chivhu- Chiredzi highway and bordering other districts like Bikita to the south and Chirumhanzu to the west.
The main business centre, Mpandawana, had been referred to as a growth point all along until 2015 when it was given town status in recognition of its massive growth in recent years.
The town offers many investment opportunities in line with the government`s initiative of opening up the country and improving the ease of doing business.
The district is made up of 41 wards and Gutu Rural District Council (RDC), as the local authority, employs 61 people who work hard to maintain optimum service delivery.
Gutu RDC prides itself in offering a favourable payment plans and quick approval of development applications for permits, building plans and trading licences.
Genuine land developers who are serious about adding value to any suitable piece of land in the district can do so at affordable cost, and they are assured of priority attention as well as quick processing of the requisite documents.
The district is one of a few others that have consistently managed to provide an efficient sewerage reticulation system and a waste disposal system.
Gutu RDC has recently moved to improve capacity in waste management by purchasing a refuse compactor to the tune of tens of thousands of US dollars.
The local authority is also in charge of hundreds of kilometres of relatively well-maintained tarred, gravel and dusty roads as well as water infrastructure which serves Mpandawana residents.
Council also manages Woodlands Dam, which, apart from providing water for consumption, provides a scenic place for leisure.
