The 2022 will focus on key service delivery issues, Finance and Development chairperson Cllr Tichaona Mhetu has said. Speaking during the presentation of the 2022 budget statement held at Town House this morning Cllr Mhetu said the budget seeks to address key service delivery issues and ensure that council provides sustainable service delivery before leapfrogging into a World Class City. “We are aiming to build resilience because we were negatively affected by the shocks induced by the COVID-19 pandemic both in terms of our operations and in terms of our financial wealth. “By building resilience for sustainable service delivery, we will be developing the launch pad for transformation of Harare into a Smart City by 2025,” he said. He said the budget will address gender issues. “It clearly states programmes which will address aspects like provision of maternity services to all women within the environs of Harare. “The budget also seeks to ensure gender responsive service delivery hence focus is predominantly on water, sanitation and hygiene. “This is so because we are alive to the fact that women and girls are the moist affected by poor service delivery in these sectors,” he said
