    Masvingo Provincial Minister’s office moved again


    MASVINGO-The office of the Minister of State for Provincial Affairs for Masvingo at Benjamin Burombo House has been moved for the third time in three years as Ministers change depending with their age.
    The director in the Minister's office, Kudakwashe Machako confirmed that the incumbent, Ezra Chadzamira who replaced Josaya Hungwe last week after the cabinet reshuffle is now using the second floor offices although he became evasive when this reporter introduced himself.
    "The Minister is using both the ground and second floor, he can choose either offices, you can contact him for more details," said Machako.
    When contacted Chadzamira first laughed and accused The Mirror of creating stories.
    "We give you stories but you go on to write what you want. As for the offices nothing has changed I am using the one which was used by my predecessors," said Chadzamira.
    A visit at Benjamin Burombo House confirmed that Chadzmira has since relocated to the second floor and the ground floor offices which were sealed off during Hungwe's time are now being used by Machako.
    In 2015 when the late Shuvai Ben Mahofa assumed the office after the dismissal of Kudakwashe Bhasikiti she moved from the second to the ground floor because she could not climb the stairs owing to ill health and old age.
    Government incurred costs to renovate the new office while civil servants were inconvenienced as the office of the provincial administrator (PA) was a distance from the Minister of State's office.
    When she passed away in 2017 she was replaced by Dr Paul Chimedza who went on to move the office back to second floor as he was younger and could climb up the stairs.
    Soon after the November 2017 coup Chimedza was replaced by Hungwe who went on to change the office from the second to the ground floor allegedly citing old age. Hungwe went on to undertake major renovations which involved sealing off the office from the rest of the Ministry of Health and Child Care which is housed on the same floor as he did not want disturbances from too much human traffic. This resulted in the Provincial Medical Director Dr Amadeus Shamu using the back entrance to access their offices.
