THE Bulawayo City Council has given the government the greenlight to use the Large City Hall and White City Stadium for free during the upcoming Independence Day celebrations.

The decision was made during a recent full council meeting after Bulawayo Provincial Affairs minister Eunice Sandi-Moyo wrote to the local authority last week appealing for donations for the event.
The celebrations are scheduled for Tuesday next week.
Council said it could not make cash donations, as it was facing a severe financial squeeze.
Part of Sandi-Moyo’s letter read: “It is your participation in this year’s national event, which will assist to make it a thriving success.
“I, therefore, take this opportunity to thank you for the support you rendered in the previous events and it is in this regard that the Provincial State Occasions Committee is appealing for donations in cash or kind for use during Independence Day celebrations.”
