Chiredzi Town Council Chairperson Gibson Hwende (MDC Alliance) has refused a new car & opted for a bicycle arguing resources should be channeled towards ensuring service delivery
“I told them that a bicycle is ok as of now. We have a huge task ahead in as far as service delivery is concerned. I cannot think of a car right now because I believe that money could be put on a project that can help our people.
“Our infrastructure needs serious attention and we are working against a constrained budget hence the need to put every cent to good use. I need to leave a legacy when my term is over. People should be able remember me as a leader who brought meaningful development to our town,”
“I was elected by the people and they expect me to deliver. What will they say when they see me driving a new nice car bought by their money in badly damaged roads? We have to focus on what benefits many before we push for personal pleasures,” said Hwende.
