The Government has hailed the MDC Alliance run Marondera council for using devolution funds they got from the government wisely, Newsday reports.
Mashonaland East Provincial Affairs minister Aplonia Munzverengi while speaking at the commissioning of council’s devolution projects in Ruware Park in Marondera said the Marondera council upon being allocated devolution funds actually prioritised water provision. Said Munzverengi during the ceremony:
It is, indeed, gratifying that upon receiving devolution funds from the central government, you henceforth implemented a number of projects in order to improve the quality of life of our people.
I am aware that you were allocated $8 115 305 in 2019. I am also aware that council is grappling with the challenge of water provision to its esteemed residents. I want to compliment your council for prioritising the issue of water provision as evidenced by the projects you are implementing
The council has 12 councillors, 11 of them are from the MDC Alliance but 7 of them were recalled by the Douglas Mwonzora led faction last year, However, the projects Munzverengi is talking about were done before the infamous recalls.
