BIKITA, 7 December 1993. — Mukore rural health centre in Bikita which was built three year ago, was finally opened by the Minister of Health and Child Welfare, Dr Timothy Stamps, at the weekend.
The clinic, which cost over $500 000, serves over 29 500 people in the area.
Dr Stamps commended the Canadian High Commission for providing the centre with a borehole, saying the establishment of the clinic had been overdue as was reflected by the hug number of people it served.
However, Dr Stamps said lack of telephone at the centre would create problems in cases of emergencies.
He said there was no electricity for maternity night services and Staff houses were also far from the health centre.
Dr Stamps called on the community to upgrade the road leading to the clinic from Mukore to Chikuku because in its present state it was impassable.
