6000 Stands in Mkoba
 Back
Gweru Today/Daily News
04/09/2014

The Gweru City Council is set to engage private land developers to service 6 000 stands in the high density suburbs in an bid to alleviate a mounting housing crisis, a council official has said.

Deputy town clerk Tapiwa Marerwa could not disclose the private land developers, but said some of the stands would be serviced by council.

“The stands are located in a new suburb called Mkoba 21 and we are mobilising partners to develop the stands,” Marerwa told the Daily News.

“We are looking forward to signing MoUs (memorandum of understanding) with land developers who can service and sell the stands at affordable prices.”

Stands measuring between 1 500 and 3 800 square metres in the low density areas are failing to attract buyers as most residents cannot afford the $13 000 and $30 400 charged per unit respectively.

However, the cash-strapped council is battling to complete other projects such as the rehabilitation of the water works, street lights and installation of traffic lights.

The council has admitted that its finances are currently in the red as it is owed over $25 million in unpaid rates.

Marerwa said council hopes to engage more international partners to mobilise funding.
