So will you put up another one when I visit next? President Emmerson Mnangagwa seems to be asking officials during a whistle-stop visit to Mbare’s Matapi Flats refurbishment project

Not very impressive. Inside the flats while there marked improvements a lot still needs to be done

A lot of council water may now be saved after the installation of wash-basins as well as ablution facilities
