THE Government’s Public Sector Investment Programme has started bearing fruit in Mashonaland East province, with the Murewa Registrar General’s Office nearing completion.
For the past twenty years, the people in Murewa have been waiting for the completion of the district registry offices whose construction started in 2001.
The long wait is finally over, as the Public Sector Investment Programme has seen the structure being completed, a development welcomed by the local leadership.
“I am happy that finally our building has been completed and our people will now be served closer home,” said Chief Mangwende.
“We want to thank the new dispensation for walking the talk after having waited for 20 years to complete the building.”
“Our youths who have been finding it difficult to access identity documents will now be served because we now have the capacity.”
The government has pledged to ensure all construction works are completed for people to start getting essential services.
“As a government, we are committed to ensuring all outstanding projects are completed on time so that our people get services,” said Aplonia Munzverengwi, Mashonaland East Minister of State.
Murewa Registry is one of the three registry offices under construction in Mashonaland East, with the one in Wedza now at the final stages of completion, while Mutoko Registry Offices have since been completed.
