Chikomba – Yesteryear drinking holes that were the in thing in towns and cities throughout Zimbabwe until the turn of the millennium are fast running into extinction.
In Chivhu, Chikomba Rural District Council (RDC) has announced that it is converting the once popular Ndakaziva Beerhall into a Polyclinic that will better health care facilities in the transit and farming town.
The other reason is to decongest Chivhu District Hospital as it will service wards 10, 11 and 12.


Chikomba CEO, Bullen Chiwara said the reason for converting the bar into a clinic is to improve health service delivery by bringing clinics to the doorsteps of residents.
Chivhu Residents and Ratepayers Alliance chairman Collen Zvarevashe welcomed the move but cautioned that the clinic must have adequate drugs.
“We welcome the move especially if the clinic is going to be supplied with medicine. We cannot celebrate buildings without medicine like our district hospital. It’s not about just having buildings,” said Zvarevashe.


The refurbishment of the biggest beerhall in Chikomba District started at the end of last year and significant sums of money have been spent.
“We have embarked on a project where we are converting a beer outlet into a poly-clinic. The project will be completed before year end.
“We reached that resolution and the main reason is to decongest Chivhu Hospital which caters for all wards in the district,” said Chiwara.
Chiwara said council plans to construct another polyclinic in Charuma.https://masvingomirror.com/
