Independence Day Celebrations Expected To Benefit Mt Darwin Community
The Pfura (Mt Darwin) Rural District Council says the hosting of Independence Day celebrations in Mt Darwin has brought with it a lot of benefits to the community.
All the feeder roads in Mt Darwin Township are undergoing maintenance by the local authority and the Rural Infrastructure Development Agency (RIDA), formerly the District Development Fund (DDF).
Also, the community has seen load-shedding hours being restricted to about four hours daily.
The curtailment of load shedding hours has resulted in improved water supply from ZINWA as it requires a minimum of 18 hours to pump water to all the reservoirs, which supply the eight locations in Mt Darwin.
Speaking to The Herald on Wednesday, Pfura Rural District Council chief executive officer Stanslous Nyachowe, said:

Mt Darwin will never be the same again as the hosting of the celebrations has brought with it a number of infrastructural developments, chief among these being the construction of a new stadium which will be the main venue.
It has changing rooms, public toilets, a tartan athletics track, a security fence, a solar-powered borehole for irrigation and some flood lights are to be installed.
Terraces for the stadium are on the cards as well.
Pfura Stadium is also having a face-lift as the surrounding precast wall, and changing rooms are being upgraded.
The much-needed public toilets, which were non-existent, are under construction and will be ready for use when the children’s party is held on 17 April 2023.
The local authority has also written to all business owners to spruce up their buildings and this is improving the aesthetics of the centre.
Mt Darwin is home to more than 10 000 people, who will benefit from the activities associated with Independence Day celebrations.
The Independence Anniversary Celebrations will be held on 18 April at Mount Darwin High School, Mount Darwin Centre.
The Mt Darwin community will also be treated to Zimbabwe’s biggest football fixture dubbed the Battle of Zimbabwe pitting Dynamos and Highlanders in the Independence Day Cup.
An estimated 45 000 people are expected to attend the Celebrations.
Alick Macheso and Paradzai Mesi will provide entertainment for the main Independence celebrations.
