Government’s decision to complete stagnant projects from the first republic is bearing fruits as facilities which communities had long given up on are now coming to life.


In Mutoko, Mashonaland East Province construction work on the new Mutoko government complex has resumed following the release of funds by Government.


Work at the site had gone for years without any progress, the white elephant had become part of the landscape, but recommenced after a recent visit from the Minister of State for Mashonaland East, Cde Aplonia Munzverengwi saw her push for the release of funds by Government.


The project which started in 2000 is anticipated for completion by August 2022.


During her visit to the site last month, Minister Munzverengwi promised to lobby for the release of funds for the completion of the project, which was a literal eyesore.


According to the site foreman Mr Pfunde the Public Works Department said the project has seen the employment of 35 general workers and 9 artisans.


“Most of the general workers employed are from Mutoko district thus creating employment for the local people. Among artisans are carpenters, bricklayers, electricians and steel artisans,” said Mr Pfunde.


H, however said there is need for more workers to complete the job on schedule.


“Currently all the materials for the construction of the first, second decks and the roof level are now available. Material like steelforce, timber, quarry stones and bricks are available in abundance at the site,” added Mr Pfunde.


The completion of the Mutoko New Government Complex will ease the problem of office space for Government departments.


It will also promote a one stop centre for Government services, enabling the ease of doing business in Mutoko.


It will also go a long way in providing a meeting facility for Government agencies to allow for coordination.


In the same province, Murewa Registrar General’s Complex is almost 98 percent complete and is due for commissioning soon.
