The City of Masvingo has held a two-day Departmental Integrated Performance Agreement workshop from the 25th to the 26th of February 2021 aimed at mapping strategies and set targets for the year 2021, in line with the local authority’s vision, to be an industrialised metropolitan city by 2030.
In his welcome and closing remarks, City of Masvingo Acting Town Clerk, Eng Edward Mukaratirwa urged all departments and Councillors to successfully achieve the targeted goals for the year 2021.
‘Let’s deal with the major issues, let’s achieve so that when we also leave the system, we can be able to leave some legacy so that when we look back, we would be proud of what we would have done and probably done more that we have set up now. Failure to set and understand our goals means our performance monitoring and DIPA are out of sync,’ said Eng Mukaratirwa.
The Acting Town Clerk also emphasised the importance of teamwork, noting that there was a need for members to work together and be able to leave a legacy.
The workshop afforded the Councillors and Council’s senior administration with a platform to set targets that will provide for the impetus for the efficient administration of Council as well as plan for the 2021 calendar year in order to create a road-map that will ensure the success of the local authority.
The two-day workshop focused on key major result areas that of Infrastructure development and maintenance, Social service provision, Good corporate governance, Investment promotion and Environmental management services
The workshop was attended by the Councillors and Council Management and ended on a high note with participants geared for the year 2021.
