BEATRICE - The Minister of Health and Child Care, Dr David Parirenyatwa this week toured a $150 000 clinic at  Wheelerdale farm in Manyame which was constructed courtesy of Manyame Rural District Council (RDC) and local residents.
Manyame RDC provided resources while the local community from Ward 20 and 21 who are the beneficiaries of the 12-roomed Wheelerdale Clinic provided labour.
The clinic is going to help patients who were travelling long distances to Beatrice, Harare or Chivhu for medical services.
Dr Parirenyatwa was accompanied on the tour by the Minister of Industry and Commerce who is also the Member of Parliament for Chikomba West Mike Bimha.
After the tour, he complimented the clinic as standard and has a modified shape. He then urged the local authority and the community to work towards the construction of at least two staff houses that will accommodate nurses and a health worker.
He said the Ministry will assist with equipment to be used at the clinic and that the list would be handed to the local authority and the District Administrator.
"The country has developed much such that people should have facilities like schools and clinics close to them. The clinic and its size is standard, what is only left is the construction of at least two staff houses because it is difficult for nurses to work without houses", said Parirenyatwa.
MP Bimha appreciated the comnunity and their leaders for the construction of a clinic.
Manyane RDC chairman Naason Mudzara said the clinic was constructed by the local authority and the community  comprising of ward 20 and 21 residents which provided labour and bricks. Construction was completed in 2013 and non technical staff will be chosen from the community to create employment in the area.
He said what was left was to register the clinic and the official opening would be soon.
