Kuwadzana Extension Ward 44 residents said they are not happy with poor service delivery by the Harare City Council.
Those who spoke to this publication said that this is a clear indication of failure by the councillor.
Faith Sabare 44 said as residents there were not happy on refuse collection and garbage management.
“Rubbish bins are not being there is now rubbish everywhere in open spaces, people do not have option now but to throw rubbish everywhere” she said.
Tedious Gara also mentioned the clogging of dirty water especially during rainy season.
“We are not happy to be honest; nothing has been done as far as we are concerned, we took this matter to the councillor but didn’t anything we were expecting him to bring us an excavator to clear the area to prevent the over flooding of water.
“We then contributed money as the affected area to bring hire the excavator” said Gara.
On the other hand the issue of borehole in Ward is topical as the area has few functional boreholes.
In response to the plight of residents Councillor Adonis Shoko said he tried to make efforts to remove garbage but they did not manage to do so because there were fuel shortages.
“A month ago, we were in Kuwadzana Extension whereby we tried to remove all the dumpsite but due to fuel shortages we could not manage to do so,” said Shoko.
“There are certs areas of cause which I agree they were not attended to because of the shortages of fuel and am still waiting for my duty to come so that we can collect the garbage on those areas” he said.
“We will introduce a three-bin system I every households to reduce dumping of litre everywhere.
“We are going to educate people not to throw litre everywhere but to throw litre in plastic bags for recycling” he said.
“That one when rain comes it will be history because we are going to be putting a bridge which will connect Kuwadzana Extension and White house.
“There are already plans there in the shortest period you will see pipes which will be coming to that area to connect a bridge so that water will not be coming to those houses” added Shoko.
