CHIREDZI – The Ministry of Local Government and Public Works has made a u-turn on the Chigarapasi Beer Garden deal.
Having instructed Chiredzi Town Council to lease the biggest beer garden in the country to private players, the Ministry wrote a letter dated February 17, 2017 to reverse this instruction.
The reversal came after council had already agreed to lease the beer garden to private players who had offered to pay $4 000 in rentals a month. The new instruction says that council must continue to run the beer garden which it was forced to close by the Ministry on December 31, 2016.
The latest instruction came through a letter signed by Ms E. N Jones who is a Director in the Ministry. There was a lot of public anger in Chiredzi over the closure of the beer garden.
Chiredzi Town Council Chairman Francis Moyo confirmed the developments.
 "We note that after your appeal to be allowed to retain your liquor outlet and the Minister having consented to allowing it to remain open, you are led to believe that you have closed the outlet and the residents have expressed their fears that the councilors will allocate the potentially lucrative infrastructure to themselves. The Minister expects the council to reopen the facility and operate it at a profit for the benefit of the residents," reads the letter.
Chairman of Chiredzi Residents and Ratepayers Association (CHRRA) Jonathan Muusha-Mupamombe said the latest directive is a relief to residents as the bar only needs good management and adquate workforce for its day to day running for them to make profit.
