A total of US$56 million is required to fully provide services in Harare’s newest suburb, Caledonia, a Cabinet Minister has said.
The Minister of Local Government Public Works and National Housing Cde Saviour Kasukuwere has urged Caledonia residents to pay the monthly US$50 without fail for them to access services such as water, roads and street lighting.
He was speaking during a tour of the suburb to apprise himself with developments.
Addressing the residents, he said development can only be achieved if residents pay their monthly bills.
So far 19 000 stand holders have successfully completed the registration exercise and will soon be issued with lease agreements. Layout plans for the area are now ready. The Government is expected to open a new school in January, 2016.
