ZRP Sup­port Unit com­mis­sions new houses

The Manica Post - - Building Supplement - Se­nior Re­porter

TEN new hous­ing units were on Tues­day com­mis­sioned at ZRP Sup­port Unit Changadzi in Chi­man­i­mani, eas­ing ac­com­mo­da­tion blues that were af­fect­ing police of­fi­cers who had to com­mute for long dis­tances to work.

Of­fi­cer Com­mand­ing Sup­port Unit, Dr An­ge­line Gu­va­mombe, said the hous­ing short­age was sup­press­ing op­ti­mal per­for­mance.

“The de­sire to ex­pand our ser­vices to the com­mu­nity we serve has brought with it some chal­lenges in the form of short­ages of ac­com­mo­da­tion to our mem­bers. In view of this crit­i­cal need as Sup­port Unit we re­solved not to fold our hands and wish the chal­lenges to pass,” she said.

“This re­solve led to the mo­bil­i­sa­tion of fi­nan­cial re­sources from our var­i­ous in­come gen­er­at­ing projects in a bid to come up with so­lu­tions to ame­lio­rate the ac­com­mo­da­tion chal­lenges. The re­sult has been won­drous.”

Dr Gu­va­mombe said shel­ter was a ba­sic hu­man need.

“It is the one that gives us the in­spi­ra­tion to sat­isfy all our other needs. The com­ple­tion of the hous­ing units shall go a long way in less­en­ing the ac­com­mo­da­tion cri­sis of mem­bers. Some of our mem­bers are lodg­ing as far as Mutare and Chipinge com­mut­ing each day while some are ac­com­mo­dated in the vicin­ity of the lo­cal growth point. The sce­nario is tremen­dously af­fect­ing op­er­a­tions of the dis­trict.”

She said a lot of sac­ri­fices were made to con­struct the houses.

“Apart from the fi­nan­cial con­tri­bu­tions that are as fol­lows; Changadzi dis­trict $44 600, Sup­port Unit prov­ince $77 000 to make a to­tal of $121 600, I want to ac­knowl­edge the ef­forts of of­fi­cers who con­trib­uted im­mensely through brick mould­ing as well as the con­struc­tion sec­tion team who self­lessly ren­dered their ex­per­tise. To com­plete a project of this na­ture is noth­ing like shoot­ing fish in a bar­rel. It calls for undis­puted ded­i­ca­tion and com­mit­ment from all con­cerned stake­hold­ers.”
