Devolution funds new clinic for Zvishavane

Story by Courage Bushe

VILLAGERS from Shiku in Zvishavane District are celebrating transformative development in the area after the completion of the Marira Clinic constructed using devolution funds.

The construction and completion of Marira Clinic in Zvishavane District has brought health care services closer to the people who were travelling more than 20 kilometers to the nearest health care facility.

“Since the coming in of the Second Republic, there have been significant changes here in our area. We now have a complete health care facility that will help us in thwarting diseases such as cholera,” said one of the beneficiaries.

Another added, “Before this clinic was constructed, we used to travel more than 15 or 20 kilometers to Zvishavane or Mabasa for health care services but now health services are on our doorsteps.”

The completion of Marira Clinic lays bare the Second Republic’s inclusive development agenda.

“As we pursue an upper middle-income society earlier than 2030, health for all by 2025 is within reach as the new dispensation has adopted bold strategic decisions that leave no one and no place for broad-based and inclusive modernisation that focuses on sound service delivery by local authorities,” said Midlands Minister of State for Provincial Affairs and Devolution, Honourable Owen Ncube.

Under the devolution programme, the clinic has been equipped with modern equipment, electricity and portable water, while three staff houses have also been constructed.
