President Emmerson Mnangagwa yesterday said 30 clinics will be built around the country through the US$200 million loan facility from the United Kingdom government.
He made the remarks at the handover of a clinic constructed in partnership with a British company, NMS Infrastructure Limited, in Stoneridge, Harare.
My Government is unwavering in its commitment to accelerate the provision of adequate social infrastructure for new settlements which have been established around our cities, as a result of urban expansion.
Since my last visit to this area, it is disturbing that the implementation of a comprehensive framework on land use planning and infrastructure provision of basic services is not in place.
This ought to include suitable road networks, formal schools and access to safe potable water.
The undue and unjustifiable delays are not acceptable and against the work culture of the Second Republic…
Health facilities of this nature dovetail with my Administration’s development philosophy of ‘leaving no one and no place behind’.
In light of the above, the construction of Cowdray Park Clinic in Bulawayo, Mataga Clinic in Mberengwa, and Runyararo Clinic in Chimanimani, under Phase One of the project, should be speeded up.
Stoneridge Health Centre has outpatient, maternity ART and inpatient facilities.
The President also received 40 ambulances from the United Nations and said the modern ambulances will be distributed to rural areas and high-density suburbs.
