    GWERU – Beneficiaries of Hertfordshire Phase 1 have pleaded with the Commission of Inquiry into the Sale of State Land in and around urban areas since 2005 to carry out an audit into how the money they collectively raised was used for development by their leaders.
    Obrian Chikuru a beneficiary of Hertfordshire Community Housing Scheme at Hertfordshire Phase 1 said that their project was a community based scheme meant to benefit poor people.
    He said that the project was started in 2012 but however, there has not been any transparency in the manner their money was used by leaders of the committees they elected to lead them.
    He said there were a number of chairpersons elected over the years but they never availed books for scrutiny.
    “This project was a community scheme. We contributed money for roads construction, water reticulation and land development but the roads are in a bad shape, there is no water for the past three or four years and refuse is not being collected,” said Chikuru.
    She also said that all those who once chaired the Hertfordshire committee should be called to the hearings and answer for themselves.
    Hertfordshire Phase 1 has 1 384 stands.
