BEITBRIDGE – Beitbridge Town councillors have resolved not to attend full council meetings until management embarks on and completes projects that have been outstanding for a number of years now.

Ward 3 councillor Takavingei Mahachi said management has since 2018 failed to attend to problems of water supply and sewer despite several resolutions and meetings by council over the matter.

He urged councillors to take drastic action and show management that the City fathers are not happy with their performance.

The councillors also discussed the issue of a grader bought by council sometime back but still not supplied. They complained against road lights that remain unfixed.

Ward 4 councillor Morgan Ncube then raised a motion and said that it was not necessary to continue attending meetings that discuss the same issues over and over again. He proposed that the councillors stop attending full council meetings until management starts to implement projects.

Councillor Mahachi then seconded and added that he cannot continue to discuss issues from 2018 that have no progress. 

Town clerk Loud Ramakgapola admitted to the issue of lack of progress and promised to attend to the projects.

The councillors then resolved to leave the meeting and only come back when they see progress on the ground.

Beitbridge Mayor, Munyaradzi Chitsunge said they made a resolution and councillors are abiding to it.
