Three Centres In Mash East To Be Awarded Town Status

Three Centres In Mash East To Be Awarded Town Status

The Government is working on awarding town statuses to three settlements in Mashonaland East Province, which currently has just one town, Marondera.

Local Government and Public Works Minister July Moyo said a survey of Chivhu, Murewa and Mutoko centres, which are under rural district councils, showed that they are expanding.

Moyo revealed this while addressing ZANU PF members during the Mashonaland East Provincial Coordinating Committee meeting held in Marondera over the weekend. He said:

There is only one town in the whole of Mashonaland East Province, which is Marondera.

The President has asked us to make a survey on areas which are growing and can be awarded town statuses and can have a town board. We have come up with Chivhu, Murewa and Mutoko.

Our job is to make a survey and make recommendations, but the President has a final say on that.

Most so called Cities muno are actually towns, while the so called towns are growth points. Lets not abuse some names by callng Murehwa a town. Chivhu a.k.a. Enkeldorn can however qualify.

As someone who frequently visits murehwa all i can say is murehwa is still a long way from being a town, barely qualifies to be a growth point

I DO NOT KNOW HOW BIG MUREHWA AND MUTOKO ARE. THEREFORE I CANNOT COMMENT ON THEIR TOWN STATUSES.

I AM PRIVY TO THE CONDITIONS IN CHIVHU. THERE ARE BANKS AND SUPERMARKETS IN CHIVHU. I THINK IT WORTH TOWN STATUS.

You can't force a growth point to be a town when it has not reached the standards of giving it a town status for the sake the Province have only one town. We need standards
