Commenting on his confirmation, Mr Mutyasira said he was more than honoured to chair the BRRA and will do everything in his power to champion development in Ward 18.
“The BRRA being the most successful residents’ run association, I feel honoured that the residents have confirmed their faith in me to officially chair the committee. I have always been a development oriented individual and I will do everything in my power to bring development to Borrowdale,” said Mr Mutyasira.
The meeting also saw two new members joining the BRRA committee. The two were the youthful Mr Victor Muchatuta, a former St John’s College student and a recent graduate whose passion is getting the youths to be involved in community development and Mrs Judy MacPherson, a retired educationist with vast experience in education who is coming into the committee to head the education portfolio.
All the other committee members continue heading the membership, planning, bulk water, roads, public relations, waste and legal portfolios and were represented at the meeting.
The chairperson and treasurer presented their reports while the Harare North MP Mr Allan Markham and Ward 18 Councillor Ian Makone also addressed the meeting.
Mr Mutyasira said the association was away from just focusing on service delivery issues but now looking at all the issues that affect the community.
“We are also moving from just focusing on service delivery issues and becoming a community that looks at the entire spectrum of society, chief among these being our youths and drugs,” said Mr Mutyasira.
Mr Markham and Councillor Mokone stressed the pertinent matters pertaining to service delivery and the welfare of each and every resident.
