    SHURUGWI - Aaron Chinhara, the owner of Glow Petroleum has blasted Gweru and Zvishavane town councils for practising corruption which he blamed for the lack of development in the two urban settlements.
    Chinhara made the statement during the official opening of a $2 million Glow Petroleum Service Station in Shurugwi on Friday last week. The service station is housed at a complex called Great Dyke Centre.
    Chinhara said there is corruption and nepotism at Gweru and Zvishavane councils. He said he had applied to develop land in each of the two towns but the projects were given to people who have no capacity and as a result that land is idle until today.
    “I once identified land in Zvishavane and went through all processes of helping the council to develop the land since they had no resources but after that they gave the land to someone who had no capacity. That land sits idle up to now. I met the same situation in Gweru,” said Chinhara.
    Gweru mayor and president of Urban Councils Association of Zimbabwe Josiah Makombe described the treatment that investors go through at councils as unfortunate.
    “It is sad that you went through all that and as the president of UCAZ I will make sure that councils under me will do the proper thing and put development first before anything else. I invite you back to Gweru and we will be very supportive,”, said Makombe.
    Chief Nhema and former commissioner of the Tongogara RDC said that Shurugwi could have had more business if the councils had been more professional.
    The first Methodist in Zimbabwe Church female bishop Evemary Nyabonda officially opened the service station.
    The station is a business partnership between Glow petroleum and a local business woman Senetty Chiganze.
