The council-run Rujeko Clinic
Masvingo City Council has plans to build a new community clinic in Runyararo West using money generated from the beer levy receipts, TellZim News has learnt.
If the project succeeds, residents of Runyararo West will have an option closer home and it will reduce congestion at the other available clinics in the city.
A budget statement by the chairperson of Finance and General Purpose Committee to the special council meeting dated August 15, 2019, states that the mobilisation of resources needed for construction of the clinic should start urgently.
“Plans have been drawn for construction of a clinic in Runyararo West. This will be funded from the Beer Levy Receipts. Mobilisation of materials should start in the second half of this year,” reads part of the statement.
Runyararo Clinic is currently the only community clinic providing health services in the sprawling Runyararo high density suburb.
