School constructed under devolution programme in Chikomba

By ZBC Reporter

THE Governments devolution programme continues to transform communities, with the Duvhurwi community in Chikomba welcoming the construction of Chitunhu Primary School.

The Second Republic’s thrust on leaving no one and no place behind in terms of development has come at the right time for the community, bringing joy to hundreds of pupils who have been travelling long distances to the nearest school.

“We have been travelling long distances to areas like nearby schools in Buhera district as we had no schools,” said Michael Chipangura, Chikomba Ward 19 councilor.

“As council, this is our chance to ensure our pupils have access to education without long distances,” said Israel Dhikinya, Chikomba RDC Chairperson.

“We have already allocated funds to the school under devolution, so we expect to complete another block this year,” said Bullen Chiwara, Chikomba RDC Chief Executive Officer.

The areas legislator and Minister of Transport and Infrastructure Development, Honourable Felix Mhona has also come on board to promote development in Chikomba Central.

“In addition to devolution blocks, I am going to construct another classroom block using my own resources as we want to improve learning facilities here,” he said.

Other projects, which have benefitted from devolution funds in the constituency include construction of waiting mothers shelters at Mbiru and Rukovera clinics and rehabilitation of Wazvaremhaka Clinic and installation of piped water at the same facility.
