Shurugwi – The Minister of Local Government and National Housing, July Moyo has approved Tongogara Rural District Council’s (RDC) $881 million budget for the year 2022.
Tongogara RDC chairman Golden Kapeta confirmed the development to The Mirror.
“Our 2022 annual budget has been approved and this has risen from $296 million as of 2021,” said Kapeta.
The council has an allocation of $369 million for devolution projects and $37 million for the Emergency Road Rehabilitation Program.
Kapeta said a big chunk of the budget will be for service delivery, completion of schools and clinics’ buildings and repair of roads which were damaged by heavy rains last year.
Last year’s budget performance stood at 58 % and the poor performance is attributed to the Covid19 pandemic lockdowns.https://masvingomirror.com
