A total of 140 households whose properties were destroyed during the March 2019 Cyclone Idai disaster were allocated houses and stands at West End Farm near Nhedziwa Business Centre in Chimanimani District.
The Chronical reported that construction work for the 55 houses which are on the initial phase is almost complete, with nine of them already roofed.
Twenty-six were being roofed, while the other 20 were at various stages of construction. The serene environs of West End Farm are now a hive of activity as 151 artisans and general hand workers are on site, with some already doing preliminary works on the next phase of 50 houses.
On Sunday, representatives of the households were ferried to West End Farm for the houses and stands allocation exercise which was conducted by picking stand number cards that had been placed in a hat.
Lucky ones picked stand numbers with already completed houses, while others got houses at various stages of construction. The rest were shown their residential stands.
Sunday’s allocation of houses and residential stands was in sync with the March 15 deadline that Government had set for the accomplishment of the feat.
