BONA clinic in Bubi district, Matabeleland North, funded to the tune of $9 200 000 by the Government under devolution projects, has been officially opened.
The health institution is set to serve an estimated 1 200 households from Bona, Goodwood, Nkayi-Tshanke and Dabe areas. The project, meant to ensure easy access to health services began in 2020.
In an interview with Sunday News ,Matabeleland North Minister of State for Provincial Affairs and Devolution, Hon. Richard Moyo saluted the Second Republic for delivering on its devolution promises. He noted that the programme had enabled the facilitation and development of infrastructure, a key enabler towards the achievement of the National Development Strategy.
“I want to appreciate the government of Zimbabwe for giving us those devolution funds. The thrust of the NDS1 is to transform lives by achieving accelerated, inclusive and result based growth and development as seen here in Bona” he said.
He further commended the Bubi Rural District Council for the transparency and diligence in the handling of the devolution funds. He further expressed how delighted the rest of the Bona community and surrounding communities were for the government lifting the burden of walking for over 25 kilometres to seek medical assistance off their shoulders.
“I want to say thank you to Bubi RDC for a job well done. The hard work. Transparency and diligence awarded to this project cannot go unnoticed. I should also attest to the happiness expressed by the Bona communities and other beneficiary surrounding communities towards the new development. They will no longer have to walk for over 25 kilometres to the nearest medical facility.”
