Kadoma City Council has begun plans to implement its five year strategic roadmap which will see major problems that had haunted local residents being addressed.
The new strategic roadmap will cover the period 2019 to 2024.
The strategic roadmap is going to resolve water shortages, unrepaired roads, dilapidating housing facilities and clinics.
Recently Kadoma City Council Town Clerk Mr Malvern Dondo told the media that, the crafting process was underway.
“Our five year plan is expiring December this year. As council we are currently reviewing the old one and see how best we can come up with a polished strategic roadmap for the city,” he said.
Mr Dondo expressed that the strategic plan will mainly focus on delivering top notch services.
“Our major focus is going be on water, sewer reticulation system, solid waste management and improved housing facilities,” he said.
Kadoma Residents Association Chair person Mr Wikirosi Mutizira recently highlighted that, water was residents’ major priority, but differed with council management on other priorities.
“Residents are much concerned about improved water situation in the city especially after reported cases of typhoid and cholera this year,” he said.
“However we also feel that roads should be given top priority in the next five years as they are in a dilapidated state. They are now death traps for both motorist and pedestrians.”
Mr Mutizira, also took a swipe at council for having a tendency of failing to give feedback on its previous strategic plans.
He said failing to access the strengths and weaknesses that would have been encountered in the past five years was a major setback for development of the city.
“In most cases we are failing to achieve our goals due to lack of feedback and proper communication between residents and council,” said Mr Mutizira.
