Gweru City acquires US$150k service vehicles

GWERU-Service delivery for the residents in the city of progress is set to take giant step forward as the Council has acquired new service vehicles worth US$147 600 from their all weather supplier, Dulys Motors.

The Gweru City Council took delivery of a US$ 73 000 fire tender purchased from Namibia, four Nissan NP 200 trucks bought at US$16 900 each and two tractor trailers worth US$7 000 each from Dulys Motors recently.

During the commissioning of the service vehicles, Gweru Mayor, Cllr Martin Chivhoko expressed gratitude to the residents for their continued support by paying their bills to help Council to perform its mandate of service delivery.

“We are happy with the developments in the City. This shows that as a people we are working towards the betterment of our home which is Gweru.

“As a council, we only want better service delivery for our people. Garbage must be collected in time, we want water, we want working traffic lights, we want good roads,” Chivhoko added.

Gweru Town Clerk, Livingstone Churu said deliberations were made and critical areas were identified which needed service vehicles and these were made available.

” As you can see these vehicles are a testimony that we are progressing and we want better things for our people. We are yet to receive other fire tenders from the central Government.

“The idea was to establish sub fire station in communities, particularly in Mkoba and Senga so we hope things will go according to plan. Remember people were paying their fire levies and this is part of the money which is now being used,” he said.

Meanwhile, Gweru City Council Public Relations Officer, Vimbai Chingwaramuse said, the fleet was bought to boost service delivery in the city.

“These cars are going to be distributed to critical areas of operations namely the engineering side for sewer, fire department, health and finance where the other pickup truck will be used for meter reading purposes.”

Last month Gweru City Council commissioned another fleet of vehicles which included four tractors, three Nissan single cab trucks and two refuse compactor lorries.
