The Norton Residents’ Development Trust today held a demonstration against poor service delivery by the local authority.

The residents are accusing the town council of stifling development projects, defying ministerial directives and blocking construction of a mortuary at Norton District Hospital. The residents want Local Government minister Saviour Kasukuwere to intervene and help address some of their grievances. This is not the first time Norton residents have protested against the local authority, accusing councillors of pursuing their own interests at the expense of service delivery.
