___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

 Good afternoon to you all

 It is my pleasure to welcome you all, as we gather to witness the launch of Mutare City’s 100 day plan.

The 100 day’s plan initiative comes at a time when the Local Authority has started the process of engagement with other stake holders, with a view to create good will and mutual understanding among both the internal and external stakeholders.

In line with the Government’s initiative to revive the economy, industry, and all others that contributes to national development agenda, City of Mutare has come up with 100 day plan programme which will run up to the 31st of December 2018.

The 100 day plan project will chart a new service delivery provision.

The quick wins will help us to address the low hanging deliverables and it is pleasing to note that as Mutare City our 100 day plan is designed to address some of the challenges that affect service delivery.

As a local authority we have come up with S.M.A.R.T 100 day plan, that is Sustainable, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Time bound.

As a city we have rolled our sleeves to ensure that the set goals for each target are attained within the time frame, by the 31st of December 2018.

Ladies and Gentle men let me share with you some of the targets.

  1. Water and Sanitation

 The Local Authority within the 100 day plan intends to rehabilitate water and sewer systems in some parts of Sakubva, Dangamvura and other surrounding suburbs. We want to reduce the rate of sewer and water bursts in most residential suburbs. We also aim to replace water valves and hydrants to minimize non revenue water which is still above 60 percent. 

  1. Projects

By the 31st of December we anticipate to complete construction of Hobhouse Primary School in Hobhouse.  The school should open its doors by January 2019.

We shall also complete the construction of Sakubva stadium perimeter wall and revamping the interior to meet the required standards.

  1. Planning, Roads and Electricity

This plan targets the repairing and revamping of public facilities mainly public toilets, some of which have been reduced to unusable state due to vandalism.  We also aim to repaint Municipal buildings and other properties in line with the new thrust of brand visibility and management.  In the same vein, the target will also ensure the repair and erection of street and tower lights especially in the residential areas.

  1. Service delivery vehicles

Council is set to procure three refuse trucks and one backhoe loader by 31 December 2018. This will undoubtedly improve refuse collection schedule in the city and residential areas.

For these and other projects to come to fruition let  me hasten to say that, the task at hand demands close collaboration, residents, stakeholders should play their part and above all management should brace up for this task.

There is need to unite and forge common purpose amongst ourselves as residents of Mutare.

This task before us therefore needs a holistic approach, from all our stakeholders, ratepayers, residents, Councillors, Council management and also Council staff.

We need to work together in order to achieve this, failure to achieve is not an option.

For successful implementation of the set 100 day plan, Council will have to fork out close to $ 3 318 925 00 three million three hundred and eighteen dollars, nine hundred and twenty five dollars only to self finance all the projects.

I humbly call upon every concerned Resident and stakeholder of Mutare to play a meaning part in ensuring that we succeed as a City.

United, Together We Shall Accomplish More and Make Mutare City Great Once Again.

I Thank you all, May God Bless you all.
