…road-surfacing project changes face of Murambinda
MURAMBINDA – Buhera Rural District Council (RDC) has received some praise from residents and business people who are impressed by efforts being made to improve the state of infrastructure in the sprawling growth point.
Road infrastructure is being surfaced by Jepnik Civil Contractors.
The company has already surfaced the road connecting Murambinda Magistrates’ Court to Buhera RDC offices. The road continues straight to the new Nyaradzo offices right up to the Central Business District (CBD)
The section of the road connecting Murambinda Mission Hospital to the Murambinda CBD was also surfaced, and many people say the developments will help the growth point attain town status sooner than later.
“Murambinda is poised for growth because business confidence is growing. People are taking note of what authorities are doing to improve infrastructure so I am convinced that new money will come and we will soon be a town,” said one business person who runs grocery shops at the growth point.
Another business person said she was now motivated to pay rates because council was doing some tangible work with ratepayers’ money.
“We do not need to be reminded every now and then that we must pay council what is due to them. If we see that the money being paid is being put to good use, there will be no problem. I am now more prepared to support the council to deliver services,” said the business person.
One resident said she was pleased that the road upgrades will reduce the amount of dust that gets to her house.
“I hope the work will continue so that we have less dust rising. There is nothing that can stop us from becoming a clean and well-maintained town. The little money that council collects must continue being used in the right way. We can achieve town status and go on to attract big businesses,” said the resident.
Buhera RDC CEO Dr Emily Chibvongodze said council will continue working hard to improve service delivery.
“We will continue to work to improve not only Murambinda, but the whole of Buhera. Ours is a vision to work with the people and ratepayers to bring tangible development to make our communities better,” said Dr Chibvongodze.
