Bubi District wrapped the year 2021 in style as the Minister of State for Provincial Affairs and Devolution Matabeleland North, Richard Moyo, yesterday commissioned a devolution funded tractor and a dam scooper.

He also handed over 22 new motor bikes to 22 Bubi District Councillors at Bubi Rural District Council.

The 22 motorbikes handed over to councilors are loans, and they are expected to be paid for in 17 months.

Government authorised Councils to procure motor bikes for councilors, to enable them easy mobility as they move around their constituencies.

Councillors, especially in rural communities are the vital cog in the country`s development agenda.

Speaking at the ceremony, Minister Moyo said the Second Republic is committed to its promises and will leave no one behind in its development pursuit.

Devolution funds have allowed communities to decide on priority projects, based on their needs.

“Significant progress is witnessed in the implementation of various projects across the District and Province as a whole.

The thrust of the NDS1 is to transform lives by achieving accelerated, inclusive and result based growth and development. I have been seeing this happening in other provinces and l’m glad it is now happening in my Province, Matebeleland North,” said Minister Moyo.

Minister Moyo applauded the Bubi Rural District Council Chairperson and Chief Executive Officer for serving the people with diligence.

He urged them to use the new equipment and motorbikes to serve the people of Bubi.

“l am very impressed especially considering that this year BRDC was in the map of the state of art Bona Clinic that l officially opened on the 6th of November 2021,” said Minister Moyo.

Mr Douglas Banana Mpofu , Councillor for Siganda, applauded the Second Republic for noticing them and bringing relief by allowing their council to buy them motor bikes which they will pay back in instalments.


“We are relieved and elated to say the least as we can move around our wards and attend to all meetings with ease,” he said ecstatically.

More developmental achievements are expected in 2022.

The BRDC is amongst the numerous who have immensely benefited from the devolution and development pursued by the Second Republic.

It is through devolution funds that the council was able to implement a socially focused projects throughout the year.

The tractor and the dam scooper is a profound gesture that will impact positively in all the 22 wards.

Silted dams in different wards will be attended to, improving holding water capacity for villagers and livestock.
