Gutu West villagers applaud government for improved social services

Story by Mercy Bofu-Matinha

VILLAGERS in Gutu West resettlement area have applauded the government for improving social services in the area through access to clean water and upgrading the road network.

The people of the Nyashenje area in Gutu West have received a lifeline after the ZANU PF-led government initiated various programmes in the area to ensure they make the most from the land allocated through the Land Reform Programme.

A number of boreholes have been sunk, inputs availed, while the road network is being improved.

“We want to thank President Emmerson Mnangagwa and his administration through our legislator for the support we have been receiving. We have seen several boreholes being sunk and now we have access to clean water,” said a Gutu villager.

“Given that we benefitted land through the land reform programme, the government has been availing inputs to us and we are grateful for the Pfumvudza programme, many families are now food secure,” added another villager.

While addressing ZANU PF supporters in the area, the Masvingo provincial leadership implored the community to support government programmes to improve livelihoods.

ZANU PF Masvingo provincial chairperson Senator Robson Mavhenyengwa “President Mnangagwa and his administration are implementing various empowerment programs, let us take advantage of those initiatives to improve our lives.”

“We are saying let us come together, work hard as encouraged by President Mnangagwa in his mantra of development and definitely, our communities will be great,” said Chivi Central Legislator, Cde Xavier Maoneke.

ZANU PF Deputy Secretary for Youth Affairs Cde John Paradza, who is also the area legislator, said their focus is now on improving education and health care services.

“We thank the government for the support especially in the agriculture sector, many of our people are now food secure, however, we are still working on improving several schools and clinics in this resettlement area.”

The Second Republic is transforming rural communities through programmes such as Pfumvudza/Intwasa, Devolution and Presidential Boreholes Scheme, under the Rural Development 8.0 Model.
