BPRA weekend activity report: 05 May 2013
Bulawayo Progressive Residents Association (BPRA)
May 07, 2013

Bulawayo Progressive Residents Association held three consultative meetings on community issues on the 5th May 2013 in Magwegwe (29), Iminyela ( 13) and Luveve (15). The meetings attended by Ward Councilors, representatives from Ward Child Protection Committees (CPC) and Basic Education Assistance Module (BEAM) Committees, were mainly to ensure residents engage in dialogue with service providers and councilors on service delivery related issues. Major issues raised by residents include corruption in the CPC and the BEAM Committees, infrequent refuse collection which has resulted in the increase of illegal dumping and environmental problems, and the city’s water crisis. As part of the recommendations of the meetings, residents will continue to encourage each other to desist from illegal dumping while at the same time monitoring if BCC will follow its refuse collection schedule. Residents also resolved to lobby for an audit of the social welfare resources channeled through BEAM and Child Protection Committees.
