Newly sworn in Councilor Alec Tabe of Ward 4 Masvingo Urban is driven towards building more stadiums as he promised just after the swearing in ceremony at Civic Centre recently.
In the mood and atmosphere of being sworn in, Tabe said he intends to push towards boosting recreation, to empower the youth in Masvingo through building more stadiums, as he plans to engage the youths and to get them involved in different forms of activities.
He said he envisions the provision of space by council on which stadiums will be constructed.
“As a City our youth will be involved and empowered through recreation. I want to push for establishment of more sporting stadiums to cater for the ever increasing number of youths in Masvingo and council should avail more land for this,” said Tabe.
On his wish list, he said he will put efforts directed towards establishing alternative power supply to council through the installation of solar panels at the council hall.
“These solar panels, will reduce the bills paid by the council to ZESA and also to make sure that there is power supply during ZESA power outages and this will in turn lessen bills on residents,” Tabe said.
He also promised to push for the completion of the long standing Mucheke trunk sewer project.
“We need to ensure the completion of the Mucheke Trunk sewer through engaging other organizations to carry out this project, so as to create ample room for the city council to embark on more projects and also establishment of an Infectious Diseases Hospital in Masvingo similar to the one in Harare.
Tabe said there was need for decentralization to reduce bureaucracy in terms of council operations to improve service delivery and to provide convenient, payment methods for clients to pay all their bills in the comfort of their homes and to do away with long queues when paying bills.
