Engineer Edward Mukaratirwa has been appointed as substantial Town Clerk of Masvingo City.

His appointment came into effect this week.

Engineer Mukaratirwa was appointed Acting Town Clerk in September 2019, following retirement of long-serving Town Clerk Mr Aldolph Gusha who retired in August 2019.

He has his plate full with water shortages which have been chiefly caused by the inadequately planned population explosion in the oldest city.
Engineer Mukaratirwa inherited the role of Acting Town Clerk during a time when Masvingo ha erratic supplies and spiking water supply costs.

It is under his tenure as Acting Town Clerk that City of Masvingo has resolved that additional water reservoirs be constructed on the Hillside escarpment to supplement water supply.

Aside from water woes the City is in dire need of innovative revenue creation and collection methods to improve the Town House’s efficiency in other service delivery areas like garbage collection and road maintenance.

His engagement efforts with local Residents Associations and other stakeholders have brought about great collaborative results during early days of the COVID-19 scourge.

As Town Clerk, Engineer Mukaratirwa had already earned plaudits for engendering professionalism at town house and moving to improve revenue collection by boosting the city’s vehicle fleet.

Emergency Road Rehabilitation Programme – Phase 2 have also been undertaken under his supervision, with Masvingo City being noted as making great progress amongst other local authorities in the Province.
