The incomplete footbridge
The completion of Rujeko footbridge will most probably not be realised any time soon as much of the needed construction materials are not in place.
Council has been misrepresenting facts ever since work was begun last year, with some officials unashamedly lying that the project had been completed and was just about to be commissioned.
When contacted for comment last week, city engineer Tawanda Gozo said some of the materials needed for the resumption of work had been put in place.
“We received some of the needed materials and work will resume next week using the available resources while we wait for more. I cannot say when the project will be completed because we have not received all the materials that we need,” said Gozo.
This comes after complaints from Rujeko residents at a recent feedback meeting with Ward 7 Councillor Richard Musekiwa and Masvingo Urban Member of Parliament (MP) Jacob Nyokanhete.
Musekiwa promised the residents that he would do all that he could to make sure that the footbridge got completed in as short space of time as possible.
