HARARE- Provincial Development Coordinator(PDC) of The Harare Metropolitan Mr Tafadzwa Muguti has implored council to endear itself to the spirit of excellence in service delivery.
He clarified that Harare Metropolitan Province contributes 68 percent of national gross domestic product of which 90 percent of the contribution is from the City of Harare area.
“Harare must position itself as the biggest contributor to the national GDP and catalyse the devolution agenda in Zimbabwe,” he said.
He made the remarks during an interactive meeting between Government, councillors and management.
The interactive meeting is part of the Government roadmap to transition the city to stability to enable service delivery.
Council has recently been going through leadership instability at both management and councillor level.
“That is why we are here to assist in stabilising the capital city and ensure that it performs its mandate fully,” he said.
“You are Zimbabwe and Zimbabwe is Harare. If the capital city fails to deliver, it is the nation that fails,” said Mr Muguti.
He urged the remaining councillors to bring sanity to the city.
He praised the city for working to ensure water delivery is improved.
He also mentioned that markets should be modernised and ensure the city maximises on its asset base.
He said in comparison council had the biggest asset base than Old Mutual and was only second to Government.
He said council should turn itself into a property mogul.
