A public meeting was held in Kuwadzana on 28 February 2019 with 110 residents in attendance. The District Officer and the Revenue Officer for Kuwadzana District Office, who had confirmed their attendance, did not turn up, to the disappointment of residents. The aim of the meeting was to discuss service delivery issues in Kuwadzana. The secretaries of Kuwadzana 1-6 suburban residents’ committees took turns to provide their suburban reports and updates. Key service delivery issues that they raised are inconsistent refuse collection, erratic water supplies and water disconnections and poor representation by their elected councillors. The residents resolved to go to the District Office and have a meeting with their local District Officer in order to find a lasting solution to their challenges and also to establish a working relationship.
