President Emmerson Mnangagwa said that he will see to it that the renovation of Matapi Flats will be completed following his visit to Mbare on Monday.
Mnangagwa was touring one of the capitals’ oldest residential areas to see the ongoing renovations of the flats being done under a joint deal between the government and Harare City Council. Speaking in Mbare during the tour, Mnangagwa said:
Remember that last year, when one block was burnt, I visited the place and promised residents that I will look into renovations there, particularity that block and the rest of other blocks around that place.
When I visited the place, I discovered that they were very dilapidated so I made arrangements that they are fixed.
The company that is working there has so far attended to about three or four blocks, but they are going to do all the blocks around there.
Matapi’s sewer reticulation system, its communal toilets and laundry rooms which were built during the Rhodesia days are all undergoing renovation.
