    Zvishavane Town Council gives youth 30 days to leave swimming pool


    – Zvishavane Town Council has given Zvishavane Youth Centre (ZYC) members a 30-day ultimatum to leave the council swimming pool where they are running some projects.
    ZYC patron Bigboy Murenga confirmed the development and said the council ultimatum comes as a surprise because the youths were given that facility by the local authority after it was realized that it had been idle for many years.
    Murenga however, vowed that the youths were not going to vacate the place which they were given by the local authority barely a year ago.
    Zvishavane Town Council secretary Tinoda Mukudu could not be reached for comment. "The youths are not going to vacate the swimming pool as they had
    renovated the place to take shape. We have already served the Town Secretary
    Mukutu with a letter telling him that we are going nowhere.
    "We are shocked by the council's action. This place was a ghost place and now we have brought life to it many youths from all walks of life
    are benefiting from this place yet the council want us out," said Murenga.
    Murenga said after being given the swimming pool by council, his organization
    went on to make renovations of painting and roofing valued
    at $2 000. He said that the pool has been idle for over 10 years.
    The takeover was meant to keep youth occupied and make them productive.
    The council letter which is in the hands of The Mirror reads, "You are hereby given notice to stop development at swimming pool…hence thecouncil is giving you 30 days to vacate the council swimming pool.
    Early this year ZYC members approached the town's Housing director
    Nhlanhla Ngwenya who gave approval for the youth centre renovation. Zimbabwe Youth Council Midlands provincial coordinator, Honest Mangisi said Zvishavane Council like any other in the country has an obligation to provide facilities for the youth.
