The Neshuro-Turn P road in Mwenezi is in a sorry state and needs a hast marathon rehabilitation after having been damaged by the incessant heavy rains that spawned floods in the virgins of this year leaving out gullies and rivulets in the area, Hevoi FM News confirms. A drive along the 12km stretch that links with the Masvingo–Beitbridge highway has now become laborious for most motorists and business people in the area.
“Talk of the time you need to cover the distance. It`s like you are a pedestrian, as slow as a chameleon as you try to negotiate with the “dish holes.” Said one motorist referring to the current potholes in the area.
Maxwell Muzvidziwa, apparently the Chairperson of the business community in the area, told Hevoi FM News that business efforts were getting economically retarded day after day.
“Business is stagnant due to the dilapidated road. Invested are pulling out of the district.” Said Muzvidziwa.
The government has long since promised to upgrade this road which is expected to gobble over $273 million. This road remains significant since it is the shortest link to Mwenezi district hospital, Maranda and Manyuchi dam which is a key economic hub in the country.
