    - Chiredzi Rural District Council has completed budget consultations in the district's various wards and ratepayers have demanded reduction of rates and service charges.
    Chiredzi RDC Chief Executive Officer Isaac Matsilele confirmed the latest development and said indications from the budget consultations have shown that some rates are to be dropped to half of the previous year due to demands made by the majority of ratepayers who said they failed to pay last year`s rates due to poor performance of the national economy.
    "We are yet to compile the final budget but suggestions from the consultations have shown that communities want reduced rates as they are struggling to pay what we are charging them. We are yet to sit down as the board but it is obvious we are going to pass the proposals with the largest reduction being 50% of other charges which were paid last year" said Matsilele.
