The water is also adequately reticulated 24/7 to all residential, industrial, commercial areas, including neighbouring Municipality of Redcliff.

It is in line with this and Infrastructure Development that the city intends to up Mbizo Soccer Stadium and Amaveni Soccer Stadium to meet International Standards so that our city becomes the nation’s heart of hosting international sports tournaments as we have already taken the lead in cricket.

Investments in Sports will result in the domestic and international tourism growth. Leveraging on the existing cluster of hotels and lodges, more land shall be availed for conferencing facilities and hotels. The city shall take advantage of its location which is central in Zimbabwe.

The City also has vast opportunities for expansion thereby creating employment opportunities for the youths. There are also on-going efforts by the Central government and Council to resuscitate the road network. There is land readily available for high rise buildings such as flats through the urban renewal and regeneration concepts.

To facilitate private sector led investment, the city continues to work on improving the ease of doing business and reducing the cost of doing business.

The local authority is providing an enabling environment for private sector investments to thrive. This has seen more investors coming to invest in the City. New investments by companies like Global Union Alloys, Bentouch, OK Zimbabwe (Bon Marche), DCK, Dandairy   and Zimasco will lead to employment creation (1000), increased local GDP and improved standard of living in the district.
