    – The Ministry of Local Government has approved Runde Rural District Council budget of $2,4 million for the year 2016.
    Runde RDC Finance Director Tarirai Sibanda said that the RDC budget was approved at the beginning of this year.
    "Our 2016 budget was approved at the beginning of this year. It reflect a drop at $2,4 million as the budget for 2015 was $2,7million.
    The 2015 budget performed at 60 percent hence the reason we reduced this year budget. We also reduced the budget because the sources of revenue have dwindled due to closures of shops, big mines and small scale mines meaning we are no longer collecting anything from them," said Sibanda
    He also attributed the reduction to the poor performance of the economy in the last few months.
    "We also took into cognisance the state of the economy which is not performing at its best at the moment," said Sibanda
    He said some key projects to be carried out during this financial year are housing development of Nusipani and Mabasa housing scheme, procurement of vehicles for council executives and motorbikes for councillors.
    Sibanda said that council debtors have been a letdown and they have come up with a discount facility to all their debtors who want to clear their credits.
    " Council is owed about $848 000," said Sibanda
    Runde Rural District Council is one of the best local authorities in Zimbabwe and this is proved by the number of awards the council has won. It has been voted the best council in the past.local news
