Zvishavane pushes for city status
ZVISHAVANE Town Council is scaling up its efforts to qualify for city status by end of the year and pushing for improved infrastructure and service delivery.
Last year, the mining town applied to the central government to be granted city status leading to the appointment of a seven-member commission by the Local Government ministry to consider the application and make recommendations.
Zvishavane Town Council chairperson Khulekani Ndlovu said they are identifying key targets that the town should meet by the end of the year for it to be granted city status.
The local authority is set to avail one thousand housing stands for low income earners, construct a flea market at Mandava and a learning structure at George Chipadza Secondary School as efforts to develop into a city.
