Chitungwiza a mayraid of challenges which include high levels of corruption in allocation of residential and commercial stands, running tape water one day a week, potholed road network, non-functional street lightning system, inconsistent of collection of refuse among others.
“You don’t have water, so what is stopping you from demonstrating at the municipal head office”, said Themba Mliswa.
