Mbizo 7 In Kwekwe To Be Demolished

Kwekwe City Council will use part of the devolution funds from the central government to revamp Mbizo 7 through the demolition of old houses and replacing them with new housing units.

This will be one of the three projects the city intends to invest the $4 million it was allocated by the government. Acting Town Clerk Dr Lucia Mnkandla said:

As a council, we are putting social housing at the forefront. We are saying our ratepayers need decent accommodation and hence we are going to demolish a number of housing units in Mbizo 7 which we will replace by building new ones.

… we have a disused flea market near Prince Park. Currently, people are shunning it due to various reasons.

But we are saying this is a sleeping giant. Our plan is to upgrade it into a mini shopping mall where people will rent at affordable prices.

Mnkandla said that the city will allocate the “huge” space near the long-distance bus terminus to vendors for them to earn a living.
