    – Masvingo Province has been allocated $335 773, 80 for road maintenance for the first quarter of 2016 by ZINARA.
    ZINARA chief executive officer, engineer Julius Juma has just released a statement in which he details allocations district by district.
    Chivi and Zaka have not received anything because they have not exhausted what they were allocated in 2015. Both councils told The Mirror that will be submitting their acquittals in next week.
    Bikita got $46 442, 79; Chiredzi Rural $49 500, 02; Chivi $0.0; Gutu $48 585, 78; Masvingo Rural $53 514, 43; Mwenezi $49, 898,55; Zaka $0.0 and the total for rural districts is $247 942, 57.
    Urban centres in Masvingo received as follows, Masvingo City $51 736, 25 and Chiredzi Town Council $36 094, 97.
    Other districts in the region received as follows Chirumanzi $52 400, 00 and Chikomba got nothing because it has not yet acquitted.
    Gweru City Council got $70 611, 00; Zvishavane Town Council $35 647, 77 and Shurugwi $32 414,14.
    Beitbridge got $50 975, 45.
    "We received $194 000 from ZINARA in November 2015 for the second and third quarter unfortunately we could not complete our planned projects because our grader had a breakdown and it took us some time to have it repaired which slowed down our road maintenance programme.
    "We have managed to have it repaired and it is up and running and we have done quite a number of roads among them 21km of Vutete, Mukotosi, and Makozho, 7km at the Growth Point and Chigwikwi Business Centre to Gomo for 6km.
    "Some bridges are complete or are at various stages of construction in the district and we also intend to buy a new tractor which we have put to tender. We hope by Friday (tomorrow) we will be done with ZINARA funds remittances so that they can consider us for the current disbursements," said Chivi Rural District Coucil chief executive officer Tariro Matavire when contacted for a comment on why they did not get first quarter funding for 2016.
    Zaka Rural District Council chief executive David Majaura said their grader had broken down as well and this caused the delay in exhausting their allocation.local news
