City of Masvingo launches e-parking system – Wezhira the Parker

The City of Masvingo has managed to put inplace a web- based parking system code named ‘Wezhira the Parker’ that offers pay and park facilities with computerized parking receipts. 

Council has already installed software and provided hand-held devices for attendants at parking lots that connect the feed from the City’s parking spots to the central server on the City of Masvingo website – www.masvingocity.org.zw

The hand-held device generates e-receipts and the software allows motorists to view online the number of free and occupied slots as and when cars enter and exit the parking lot. Council also proposes to issue preloaded cards to car owners for cashless payments. 

The new system is also aimed at reducing parking woes in the central business district. 

Data collected from client satisfaction surveys over a year ago, the City of Masvingo had flouted the idea of transparent online system in a bid to tighten security and increase revenue collection.

School Development Commitee Capacity Reinforcement in Masvingo

They say a journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. The City of Masvingo in partnership with the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education has embarked on a two-day induction workshop for Council owned schools’ (SDCs) school development committees  with the aim to reinforce the capacity of the SDCs who are charged with the responsibility of governing schools and increase parents’ active participationin school management. 

The program which has snowballed to become an annual event each time a new SDC is ushered in capacitate both school heads and committees on roles and responsibilities of SDC, the role of the Responsible Authority,  financial management, asset management, vehicle policy, recruitment procedures, audit, leadership and management principles. 

Over the years, there has been a remarkable improvement in SDC governance and management of schools. There was a leap in the number of effectively and efficiently governed Council schools. 

After training on financial and asset management, instituted changes have led to transparency in the management of school finances. This in turn has won SDCs greater confidence from the parents who are now more willing to pay school levies. 

Basically, to sustain close supervision of schools, demanding accountability is crucial. 

The two-day workshop established the following areas of concern; governance, financial management and school-community relations. The identified capacity gaps were refined.  

The workshop was graced by His Worship, the Mayor, Cllr Aleck Tabe and District Schools Inspector, Mr Ishmael Chigaba.
