|Lovemore Matuke commissioning the staff house|
Gutu Rural District Council (RDC) has constructed a seven roomed staff house at Gwira Secondary School in Ward 8 Gutu North which was commissioned a fortnight ago by the deputy Minister of Public Service, Labour and Social Welfare Lovemore Matuke.
The project started in 2017 and was completed this year using devolution funds.
Matuke praised Gutu RDC for channeling the devolution funds towards community development.
"We thank our local authority for doing such a great job in community development. This is not the only project that they are doing but there are plenty others. I am impressed they are using the devolution funds well," said Matuke.
Gutu RDC council chairperson Nicholus Zambara said they decided to build the house after receiving a request from the school.
“We received the request from the school citing that teachers were being discouraged due to the distance they were traveling every day from Mpandawana town and this was negatively affecting the school's pass rate so we decided to build the house adding to the existing one.
“With this move, we hope there will be an improvement since the teachers will have more time with learners," said Zambara.
