Gutu Rural District Council (RDC) has challenged councillors to bring forward projects from their respective wards so that they can be funded from the $912 000 devolution fund.
Gutu RDC Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Alexander Mutembwa said that the projects have already started and they are progressing well.
“We have managed to follow the desired projects by the community as we have assigned councillors to bring the projects that they want and they vary.
“They are progressing very well and they are going to be completed soon because we have received another $912 000 devolution fund which we have decided to use to finish up all the projects and we are going to allocate accordingly.
“We have also decided to drill boreholes in Ward 33 and Ward 34 to do away with water shortages as we have discovered that water is becoming a problem,” said Mutembwa.
In Gutu West, the funds were directed towards the construction of Zoma and Ndawi Clinic with the other being used to supply a water system at Chiguhune Primary school.
In Gutu North, 100bags of cement were bought and directed towards Musara School bridge construction, while the other money was allocated to Gwira Secondary School for the school staff house and construction of Makumbe Secondary School.
In Gutu East, the funds were directed towards borehole drilling and installation at Bhasera, Mataruse clinic solar water pump and painting of Muchekayaora clinic.
In Gutu South, the mother’s shelter at Nerupiri clinic will be completed with Makwiriwindi clinic being constructed and 100 bags of cement given to Chimedza clinic.
